Since 1989, Helping Hands have been providing industry-leading, CQC-regulated home care to our customers across England and Wales. We specialise in compassionate, person-centred domiciliary care services which focus on helping you to continue living independently, comfortably and securely in your own home. We’re able to provide home care in Huddersfield that encompasses a wide variety of services, including supported living. Supported living provides personal and practical care to people who do not want to live in a care home but are struggling to cope at home.
Whilst there isn’t necessarily a “right time” to choose supported living for yourself or a loved one, we recommend it as a care option for anyone who might be struggling to maintain their home and their personal well-being to their usual standards. It might be that you’re not as light on your feet as you used to be, or perhaps you’ve been diagnosed with a condition which is degenerative or prohibitive. Your local care manager in Huddersfield will schedule an initial visit to discuss your care needs and find out how we can best support you to continue living life on your own terms. From there, we’ll work with you to put together a care plan which is designed around your specific requirements and preferences.
We’ve been providing home care for long enough to know that no two people have identical care needs. That’s why, when you partner with our Huddersfield care team, we’ll take the time to make sure we fully understand your needs, wishes and circumstances, before offering you a care plan that is completely tailored to you. Your friendly Huddersfield team will be alongside you for every step of your care journey, constantly monitoring your condition and situation so that relevant changes can be made to your support when needed.
When you partner with our Huddersfield team for supported living, you’ll benefit from the expert support of fully-trained carers who have been handpicked for their compassionate, dedicated personalities. We only recruit people who we’re certain will have the right attitude and temperament to be an exceptional carer, and every prospective candidate must undergo a series of rigorous background checks to ensure they’re the sort of person you’d be happy to have in your home. Then, once they’ve started with us, all new carers enrol on our industry-renowned carer training programme, where they participate in modules such as dementia care, moving and handling, medication assistance, and so much more. They’ll continue to participate in regular refresher courses to keep their knowledge and skillset up to date with the latest care industry standards and best practices.
If you’d like to find out more about our supported living services, please don’t hesitate to call our friendly team today. They’re available seven days a week, and will always be happy to discuss your options with you. Or, if you’d prefer, you can contact us via our website and arrange a callback at your convenience.
