You’ll never be alone at home if you choose companion home care in New Milton from Helping Hands. You may only need us for an hour or two a week, or you may prefer to have someone living-in with you, but regardless of how often you need us you’ll always get exceptionally high standards of care delivered to you at home.
If you are looking to remain as independent as possible in the home you love and not wanting to go into residential care, we can help. We support people with a wide variety of care and support needs, living with conditions such as dementia, cancer, age-related frailties, and spinal injuries. Whether you need occasional help with housework or someone to hoist you out of bed, we can support you with this and everything in-between.
Avoiding social isolation through companionship care is a great way to remain active in your local community or enjoy the activities you’ve always done at home. Having visiting or live-in care ensures that you receive all of the practical support you need, while making sure your emotional support needs are taken care of too. Your package of care will be designed around your personal requirements while being flexible enough to change if your needs do. We’ll help you with your housework, medication, meal preparation, mobility, laundry, accessing the community, and anything else you need. Whether you’ve lost a, dear companion, beloved partner, or precious pet, we’ll help you to make the most of life again, both in your home and out of it.
We only take on carers who are naturally compassionate, regardless of the level of experience they have. After all, we can teach people the practical care skills they’ll need to support other people, but we can’t teach them how to naturally care about others. We support our carers to develop their knowledge at every opportunity, encouraging them to progress if they wish to and helping them to gain new skills. We’re proud that many of our managers began as carers and have chosen to remain with us to build and strengthen their local care team. Additionally, because our care services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones will always have your expectations exceeded.
You can talk to to our friendly customer care team seven days a week to learn more about companionship care and have your questions answered. You can get in touch with us online, over the phone, or go into your closest branch, details of which you’ll find here.
