What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Homecare from 30 minutes a week means that there is a flexible plan of support that we can devise for everyone. Perhaps you need help with household tasks, walking your dog or doing your grocery shopping? Regardless of your needs, we can be there to make life that little bit easier for you and those who love you too. Having care in your own home means that there is no need to leave your beloved home, even if it is becoming difficult for you to traverse or keep clean. Our carers will follow your personalised, flexible support plan to ensure that everything is completed to your standards and the way you’ve always liked it done. If your needs are more complex, then you may prefer several daily visits or even a live-in carer; this is someone who actually moves into your home with you to ensure that your care is fully comprehensive. Regardless of the options you choose, our friendly and professional carers are bound to become a welcome friend who you’ll wonder how you managed without!
Why you may need home care
Perhaps you need support to recover after an operation or fall, or maybe you’ve noticed everyday tasks becoming more difficult? Whatever the reason you feel you or a loved one could benefit from care, the Hertford team will be able to support you fully. It may just be for some light housework or meal preparation, or for full hoisting and mobility support to help you out of bed in the morning, you can be confident that we will support you with every aspect of your care.
Carers for limited hour visits
From 30 minutes once a week to several longer calls per day, your carers can be with you as often or infrequently as you need. Perhaps it’s overnight that you struggle to sleep, and that’s when your family carers take some well-earned rest? An overnight carer will be able to support you just the same as if you were receiving care in the daytime, the only difference being it’s during the hours of darkness. Your care will still follow your routines because you’ll have a flexible support plan that will be personalised to just you, meaning that you’ll never have to worry that the way you like things done will change.
Intermittent long-term visits
You may have been caring for a loved one for a long time or perhaps you’re fairly new to it, but the one thing you’ll know is that regular breaks are imperative to protect your wellbeing. Respite care doesn’t have to mean uprooting your loved one and placing them in a temporary residential facility when you can have a local carer from the Hertford branch who can support them in their own home. A personalised support plan will ensure that all their needs are met, and their care continues seamlessly as if you were still there, meaning you can relax and recharge your energy and your loved one makes a new friend.
Carers for immediate situations
Emergencies cause anxiety by their very nature, especially if the emergency involves a loved one. Therefore, if you are unexpectedly in need of emergency care, for instance due to being discharged from hospital, you and your family should trust a company who has been providing care in people’s own homes since 1989. The Hertford team will be able to install a carer into your loved one’s home within 24 hours of you first calling us, so why leave such an important task to anyone less experienced?
