Visiting care and live-in care in Henley-on-Thames

Henley-on-Thames was voted by The Times newspaper as one of the best places to live in the English countryside, so it’s no surprise that at Helping Hands we wanted to establish ourselves in such a beautiful area as the Chilterns.

Henley-on-Thames is probably best known for its Royal Regatta, which has taken place on the river for over 175 years, but it also hosts a range of music festivals such as the 80s ‘Rewind’ amongst many others. If you’re in the local area and are looking for care at home then talk to us about our visiting and live-in services today.

Meet Santi Yokpangden, our Branch Care Manager, Henley-on-Thames

I am the Branch Care Manager for Helping Hands in Reading. My responsibility is to ensure the high quality of care is provided to all our customers and to ensure the hard-working carers are supported to perform their best in providing that care. I believe an individual is best supported with a person-centred approach to care by our skilled staff, and I also value working together with families and people important to the individual. I found my motivation to continue working in care seeing the positive difference to people’s lives made by the care we deliver, and the peace of mind felt by the families.

Other services we provide at this branch

Visiting home care in Henley-on-Thames

Our fully managed visiting care service will see you cared for to the very highest standards in your own home, and with visits starting at just 30 minutes a week we can care for you regardless of the condition you’re living with. Our compassionate and professional carers will safeguard your wellbeing at all times and can support you with everything including personal care, meal preparation and medication support.

Henley-on-Thames live-in care

With live-in care, your expert carer will live in your home, available to care for you around the clock as well as provide companionship whenever you feel like company. Our carers are discreet and will never get under your feet – knowing that there will be times when you’d rather have some alone time or when you have friends and family to visits. They’ll busy themselves with housework or other tasks so that even if you require complex care, your independence will be respected and promoted at all times.

Better than a care agency in Henley-on-Thames

Helping Hands has always been a privately run home care company, not an agency, and we’re proud of the fact that we deliver highly individualised care for each and every one of our customers. We’re proud that we’re not a home care agency with many of the negative connotations that can bring, such as unmotivated, under-supported carers and high referral fees to ‘match’ you with a carer, In addition, we directly employ all of our carers so they don’t have to worry about self-employment and can focus on the most important thing of all – your care.

Domiciliary care in Henley-on-Thames

With domiciliary care at home from Helping Hands you’re always in control, thanks to our flexible packages designed just for you. This means you choose the frequency of visits, from just 30 minutes a week, or whether you require live-in care at home. Our friendly and professional carers will support you with your medication, mobility, household and personal care, as well as taking you to appointments and days out, where appropriate, and thanks to your personalised support plan your preferences and routines will always be respected.

Dementia care tailored to you

When you’ve been diagnosed with dementia, remaining in your own home for eventual dementia care can be a very positive alternative to residential care, as it keeps you close to loved ones and surrounded by your precious memories. As your condition progresses, you can find that you require professional care to relieve the pressure on family and friends, and we can offer immediate care when circumstances require it. Our amazing carers will be with you every step of the way as the condition progresses, to support you with every aspect of your care or just to create, preserve and reflect on memories.

Short term respite care

If your regular carer needs a break, you require short-term support while you recover from an illness or you need some extra support for a while, respite care from Helping Hands can be the perfect solution. Temporary care can be necessary for a few days or a few weeks and with Helping Hands you always know you’ll be supported to the highest standards, thanks to your personalised support plan and bespoke package of care. Even in an emergency, we can usually have a carer there within 24 hours.

Elderly care for extra support

Elderly care at home means we can support you with all the tasks that you may be struggling with, due to age-related frailties, recovering from an illness or due to a decline in an existing condition. If you would appreciate help with housework, preparing meals, medication support, laundry, making beds and a myriad other tasks, Helping Hands’ professional and compassionate carers will come to your home as often as you need and support you to the highest standards.

Fully trained carers in Henley-on-Thames

Our compassionate and empathetic carers are always ready to provide you with the highest quality home care thanks to the excellent training we provide for them when they join us, as well as developing their skills throughout their employment. Thanks to being regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you will never have to doubt that you’re receiving the highest quality care from dedicated professionals. We’re also accredited by some of the UK’s finest care organisations, including Dementia Action Alliance and Parkinson’s UK, and we were a founder member of the UK Home Care Association.
