If you or your loved one is based in the lovely town of Harpenden and are looking for home care services, then look no further than our fantastic Helping Hands team. We have vast experience in assisting our customers with all aspects of their daily lives, aiming to maintain independence as long as possible and facilitate helping them to stay in their own homes, avoiding the need for residential care.
Our team providing home care in Harpenden have been highly trained to support all of our customers, from the elderly to those who are living with dementia, to those who are living with complex health issues. Whether you are looking for someone who can help with continence, to a friendly face for companionship, our home carers are on-hand to assist in any way that they can.
Here at Helping Hands, we are here to make your or your loved one’s life easier, safer, and more comfortable. Whether you are looking for daily visits to help with administering medication, several visits each day for help with mobility, or a couple of visits each week to get out of the house, we have a range of care packages to suit you and your specific requirements. We can also supply full-time, live-in carers if you need one.
Our home care team have gone through rigorous training to enable them to support all of our customers to the high standards that we expect of them, and we are regulated by the Care Quality Commission – CQC. Whether you are looking for respite care, senior care, or care for those living with dementia, our Harpenden care team can help, regardless of your needs.
Working as a carer – paid or unpaid – can be hard work, and it is critical that carers are able to take some respite every now and again. Our home care team in Harpenden is available to cover any respite regardless of whether it is at short notice, planned, or unplanned. All of our carers know what is required for successful respite care, being able to follow care plans in detail, maintain routines, and approach this time with a friendly smile.
We understand that periods of respite can be worrying for both those who are being cared for and carers, and our professional, well-trained home care team can ensure that these times cause minimal disruption and stress, allowing everyone to relax and have a break.
The members of our home care team in Harpenden have had specialist training in all aspects of home care, including care for the elderly. This includes fresher training that ensures that our care assistants are up-to-date with the latest care practices and techniques. Whether you or your loved one struggles with mobility, dementia, continence, or is looking for a companion, our home carers are available for you whenever you need them.
With a focus on keeping our customers out of residential care and as independent as possible, allowing a Helping Hands care assistant to assist you or your loved one with everyday tasks, means that close friends and family can spend their time enjoying the nicer parts of life together.
We recognise that for people living with dementia, different levels of care are necessary. Here at Helping Hands, our aim is to keep our customers in their own home, despite the challenges that they are facing. Our care assistants in Harpenden have been trained specially to be able to give our dementia customers the best care that is possible.
We work closely with a number of leading dementia organisations and have even devised our own ‘Dementia Champion’ accreditation to ensure that our care staff are well-trained, up-to-date, and can provide the best dementia care that they can. We consider ourselves to be industry leaders in dementia care and understand that routine and familiarity are key for those who are living with dementia, and these are fundamental to the home care services that we provide.
In addition to being CQC regulated, we are also founder members of the UKHCA (United Kingdom Home Care Association) and work with other organisations such as the Dementia Action Alliance, the Spinal Injuries Association (SIA), and the United Kingdom Acquired Brain Injuries Forum (UKABIF).
All of our staff are highly trained before they start to work for us, receive 24/7 support, and fair pay. We don’t use agency staff, meaning that we can be assured that our customers will get second-to-none, quality care, all of the time, and all of our home carers are DBS checked.
