What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
The Lincoln team will be able to support you with every aspect of your care, regardless of your needs. Everyone is different and we celebrate that difference, ensuring your bespoke care package recognises and promotes everything that makes you an individual. Your personalised support plan will detail what routines you follow, ensuring that our carers will undertake your everyday tasks just as you like them done. Whether you require help with medication, mobility, housework or personal care, you and your loved ones can be reassured that you will always be taken care of to the highest standards. With visits starting from just 30 minutes a week and going up to full-time, live-in care, you may appreciate a weekly call for coffee, cake and companionship or have more complex needs that require nurse-led, higher levels of care. Regardless of which it is, the Lincoln team will be able to guide you through every aspect of your care planning.
Why you may need home care
There are many reasons why an individual decides that they or a loved one need care. It could be due to increasing frailties, a terminal illness, or just to have someone else in the house from time to time. Whatever the reason, the friendly carers in Lincoln will make your life that little bit easier by supporting you in everything you need.
Carers for limited hour visits
You might appreciate a friendly face dropping in once a week to share coffee and a cake or to do some light housework for you, or perhaps you have more complex needs that mean you require several visits a day? Whatever your circumstances, the compassionate team in Lincoln will be able to support you. The expert carers are able to undertake medication, manual handling, meal preparation and so much more, both during the day and overnight. If you have a condition that makes the hours of darkness very isolating, your overnight carer can be with you until the morning; when either another carer comes, your family take over, or you are able to manage by yourself.
Intermittent long-term visits
If you are the carer, then you know how important it is that you are in good mental and physical health to take the best care possible of your loved one, therefore taking regular breaks is a must if you are going to be able to achieve this. Having respite care from the Lincoln team is the perfect solution for when you need a bit of time away; whether to spend with the family or for some well-earned solitude. Respite cover can be short or longer-term, meaning that whatever events or holidays you don’t want to miss can be enjoyed, without worrying about who’s looking after your loved one. A personalised support plan will ensure that their routines are followed just as they like, meaning you get to relax, and they get to make a new friend.
Carers for immediate situations
We can’t predict emergencies by their very nature, however when the unexpected strikes, you need to know that support is available. Emergency care can be needed for many reasons, whether it’s due to an unexpected discharge from hospital, a deteriorating condition or the aftermath of an accident. It’s natural that in such circumstances a level of panic would set in, but with the caring team at Lincoln on your side, you will have one less thing to worry about. Emergency care can be set up the very same day and you could have an experienced carer in your loved one’s home within hours, meaning that you don’t have to try and rearrange your life just so that they can have excellent care.
