Live-in care and visiting care in Huddersfield

A large market and university town in West Yorkshire, Huddersfield has lots of hidden gems and secrets of its past. In 1895, the town invented the sport of rugby which is commemorated in the John Smiths Stadium, along with the historic win of all four Rugby League Cups by the Huddersfield Giants in 1914. But sporting accolades aside, Huddersfield is now a home for one of the leading home care providers in the UK – Helping Hands.

Whether your loved one needs an extra hand around the house, someone to accompany them on trips out, or care for a complex condition, our home care team are here to help as little or often as you need. Get in touch today to learn more about arranging care visits or the assistance of a live-in carer from the nation’s leading home care provider.

Meet Trish Ricketts, our Head of Live-in Care, Huddersfield

My role as Head of Care is to oversee the New Branches region, ensuring that new branches are set up safely and are providing a quality service to customers and ensuring that branch care managers feel supported in their roles to do this. I report in to the Regional Care Director for New Branches. I started in care 20+ years ago as a care worker whilst studying at university. This was to gain experience in a customer-facing role and because I have a passion for caring for people with various disabilities. After finishing university, I continued in the care sector as I enjoyed supporting people to live their way in their own home. I worked my way up to a care coordinator, registered care manager and then managing multiple sites as a director of services. I took on the role at Helping Hands as head of care as their values align with me, the main one being KINDNESS. At Helping Hands, we believe in providing a quality, safe and effective service to our customers and recruiting the best talent to enable us to do this. Just like the customer, we value our staff by being flexible for them and providing them with extensive training to do their role and progress within the organisation; as head of care, this makes me proud to work here! I champion dignity in care and believe that everyone should be treated with dignity - this is a basic human right and not an added extra.

Visiting care in and around Huddersfield

Here at Helping Hands, we know exactly what it takes to provide high-quality care – we’ve been doing it for 30 years! We understand how important it is for you to feel safe and comfortable in your own home, that’s why we’ll get to know you and your routines to ensure that we’re providing a service that is completely focused around you.

Whether you are living alone, with your partner or with your beloved pet, we’ll ensure that you have the support you need to live your life as independently as possible. It may be that you are looking for someone to pop in and take your canine companion for a walk around Greenhead Park, or perhaps you need clinical support for a more complex condition. Whatever it is your need, we’ll work around you to ensure that you can continue to live your life entirely on your terms – just with a little help along the way.

Live-in care for constant, ongoing support

You may find that you need more intensive support throughout the day and night, but the idea of moving into a residential home is upsetting for you. Home is where the heart is, and that’s exactly why the team provide live-in care that gives you round-the-clock support in the home you know and love.

Designed to fit entirely around you and your routines, live-in care ensures that you always have someone to call on – no matter what time of day. And with all of our carers completing award-winning training at our bespoke training facility in Warwickshire, they are fully equipped to support with anything from personal care and medication through to complex support such as PEG feeding and stroke aftercare.

Care agency in Huddersfield

When you have care at home from Helping Hands you’ll always be able to chat to someone at your local branch or in your area, so you and your loved ones can be reassured that we take care of all the carer’s employment details. This isn’t the case when you approach a traditional introductory care agency though, as they’ll charge you for providing a carer, at which point they’ll have no more to do with the situation. This means you’ll be responsible for employing and managing your carer and ensuring they pay the appropriate contributions, but because we directly employ every one of our thousands of carers we’ll handle all that for you, while managing the relationship locally. We’ll find the perfect carer to support you in your own home, leaving you to focus on living your best life possible in the Huddersfield area.

Domiciliary care within your control

We understand that acknowledging the need for care can be unnerving for you and your surrounding family. But worry not, the Huddersfield team will work closely with you to provide guidance and support to alleviate any worries that you may have. And what’s more, we’ll only be there to help out where you want us to. With you at the reigns, the control of your care is entirely in your hands.

Domiciliary care from our Huddersfield team is more than just practical support; your mental wellbeing is important to us too. If you’re experiencing feelings of loneliness and simply need a companion, then we can arrange for one of our friendly carers to pop in for a cup of tea and a chat with you. Or if football is your passion, we’ll by your side at The John Smith’s Stadium in a blue and white scarf.

Specialist dementia support from our expert team

As one of the leading dementia specialists in the UK, we’re proud to be an ambassador for dementia care. And with experience in the many different variants of dementia – including frontotemporal dementia, Alzheimer’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease – we have the knowledge and understanding of how to support you and your loved ones throughout every step of your dementia journey.

We understand the importance of feeling safe and settled when living with dementia, that’s why we’ll provide a bespoke support plan that provides consistency and continuity with your care – all within the comfort and familiarity of your own home.

Elderly care for your peace of mind

As we grow older, we can often start to experience difficulty with our day-to-day life. Whether it’s a decline in our mobility or experiencing visual or hearing impairments, these difficulties can often have an impact on our confidence when going about our usual routines. But one thing that could make your life that little bit easier is a friendly carer from our Huddersfield team. With elderly care from Angela and her team, you’ll have someone there to support you both practically and emotionally – even if it’s for 30 minutes a week or more regular visits throughout the day.

Respite care for your short-term needs

If you’re looking into different care options and you’re wondering if a live-in carer is a suitable option for you, respite care is the perfect opportunity for you to test the waters and establish exactly what level of care you need. Or perhaps you have recently acquired a life-changing injury and you need some support on your road to recovery. Whatever the circumstance, respite care from the Huddersfield team ensures that you have a personalised package of care in place that is ready whenever you need it, for as long as you need it.

Respite care really is available for any situation. It may be that your loved one is getting married but you would like some extra support to attend their wedding, or you may be looking to take a break to the Yorkshire Dales for a weekend but you feel you need some help whilst you’re away from the familiarities of home. Whatever it is, our Huddersfield will work around you to provide short-term care that is entirely focused around you.

Private care Huddersfield

When you choose to partner with a private care provider such as Helping Hands, you’ll be getting access to a level of care that you wouldn’t normally expect from a care agency. As a private carer, we employ our carers directly, which means that we’ll handle their monthly wages and will take care of all the fiddly admin and paperwork that can often be so time-consuming when dealing with a care agency. We believe that by prioritising our carers’ well-being, we provide them with the best possible opportunity to devote their time and energy to offering you the very best care that they can, rather than having to worry about chasing payments. We’ll also take the time to make sure you get a care plan that is completely focused on your particular requirements and preferences, because we know that your needs will be unique to you and your condition.

Award-winning training for our Huddersfield carers

Here at Helping Hands, we’re proud to be the only home care provider to be endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care, due to our detailed training programme that we provide to all of our carers. This programme includes modules such as moving and handling, dementia care, safeguarding and medication administration and many more, and each of our carers complete regular refresher courses to ensure that their practices are always up-to-date and at the best that they can be.

And to ensure that we adhere to the latest industry guidelines, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who check that we are fully compliant in providing a safe and effective service.
