Why choose Helping Hands for home care in Milton Keynes?
The biggest new town to be developed in the 1960s, Milton Keynes was designed with a softer style in mind to avoid the tower blocks and traffic-choked streets of previous ‘new town’ developments. It’s no surprise then that a place with such progressive thinking would attract the UK’s premiere homecare provider, Helping Hands. Founded in 1989, Helping Hands has been supporting people to live independently and safely in their own homes for more than 30 years, and our dedicated team in Milton Keynes will be happy to guide you through your home care options.Request a callback Email us
What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Whether you feel you’d benefit from a 30 minute visit once a week, perhaps for a natter over coffee and cake, or you have complex care needs that require daily visits or even live-in care, the team in Milton Keynes will be able to fully support you as you transition into living with care. Perhaps you’ve been forgetting to take your essential medication or a loved one has been needing to help you with your mobility, whatever the reason, our friendly and compassionate carers will be there to help. Don’t struggle on with your housework or trying to prepare meals when one of our carers would come to your home and take the burden from you; they’ll even make you a cuppa while you sit and watch them work! Flexible homecare is a preferable alternative to moving into residential care, due to you being able to stay in your own home and not have to leave the place you love. And with a personalised support plan to ensure your routine gets continued just as you like it, what’s not to love?
Why you may need home care
People need homecare for a variety of reasons; it might be for post-operative care, a deteriorating condition, or general age-related frailties. However, regardless of the circumstances, a carer from the Milton Keynes team will be a welcome addition to your daily routine and everyday life.
Carers for limited hour visits
When you have a carer from the Milton Keynes branch you don’t just receive practical care, you get someone who will quickly become a friend and will be a trusted addition to your daily life. In fact, you’ll soon wonder how you ever managed without them! Whether for a 30-minute call once a week so that you can visit local attractions such as Ouse Valley Park, or several calls a day to take care of your more complex needs, you’ll look forward to seeing the friendly face of your carer at the door. They can also attend to you overnight if you need your needs taken care of around the clock, so regardless of when you need care, speak to the team at Milton Keynes to discover more.
Intermittent long-term visits
Respite care conjures up images of having to relocate temporarily into a residential or nursing home, yet there is an alternative. Why not have a Helping Hands carer with your loved one, whether the respite is short or longer-term? It’s vital that you get a proper break when you’re the one caring for a loved one, so to ensure you get to really relax when you take some well-earned time off, let one of our dedicated and compassionate carers take over.
Carers for immediate situations
The need for urgent care at home can be stressful for everyone involved, as emergency care situations rarely give us warning that they’re about to occur. The thought of which family member is going to put their life on hold to care for their loved one can cause anxieties for everyone, but thankfully all this worry can be avoided. A carer can be put in place by the Milton Keynes team in less than 24 hours when needed, so you can just concentrate on the important things like spending quality time together.
