What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
When you have care from Helping Hands you don’t just get a carer; you get a knowledgeable and experienced carer who you’ll be happy to see and will hopefully become a welcome friend. Whether you would like an occasional visit from 30 minutes, perhaps for a quick cup of coffee and a chat, a meal prepared or some light housework undertaken, or you need several calls a day to ensure that you are fully cared for, the team in Market Harborough will be able to assist. Our carers can support you from first thing in the morning until last thing at night, overnight, or even for full-time live-in care, so you and your loved ones can be confident in the care you’ll receive.
Why you may need home care
There are many reasons why you may have decided you or a loved one need homecare; it could be an obvious increase in frailty, post-operative care or perhaps a desire for companionship, whatever the reason we can help.
Carers for limited hour visits
Visiting care is incredibly flexible and can be tailored to exactly as much or as little as you need. You may prefer one short visit a week which start from only 30 minutes, or you might be happier that someone comes in several times a day. Regardless of the frequency, your care will be delivered around a personalised support plan that ensures your needs and preferred routines are always maintained, so whether it’s during the day or overnight, your friendly and knowledgeable overnight carers will be able to help you with everything you need to live your best life in the place you love the most-your own home.
Intermittent long-term visits
When you’re the carer you need to ensure that you are also being cared for, so regular breaks are essential. Without taking care of yourself and ensuring that your physical and mental health are maintained you won’t be able to support your loved ones effectively, so why not let one of our dedicated respite carers take over for a while? You may want to catch-up with friends, your reading or just spend time with family, but whatever the reason, your loved one will be in expert hands with Helping Hands.
Carers for immediate situations
By its very nature, none of us can foresee an emergency care situation, but if you or your loved one is suddenly in need of professional support it can be a highly stressful situation that needs immediate addressing. The team in Market Harborough are experts in providing the perfect carer in a short amount of time, meaning that you can just concentrate on your loved one and not on the anxiety of finding them care. Whether for a hospital discharge or post-operative care, getting a carer into their home on the same day is vital, so talk to the team in Market Harborough about your options.
