Visiting and live-in care in Newcastle

Located on the famous River Tyne, Newcastle is one of the biggest cities in the UK and one of the most vibrant too. With famous landmarks such as the Tyne Bridge, St James Park and the Angel of the North, there’s a whole host of things to see and do in this energetic city. Above all, it houses a team of dedicated and compassionate carers from Helping Hands.

The Newcastle team can support you with companionship and housekeeping, right through to palliative care, or complex clinical support. On an hourly visiting basis starting with weekly drop-ins, or full-time live-in care, we can provide a carer tailored to your needs and determined to preserve your wellbeing throughout your routine. Your carer will be matched to your personality & interests and the service they provide can be as flexible as your requirements change.

Michelle Dutton

Meet Michelle Dutton, our Area Care Manager, Newcastle

I am currently the area care manager for North 1 region and I lead and inspire a fantastic team of branch managers who all share the same vision! We believe that life is better at home and we strive daily to make this happen and to offer our customers a five-star service. We pride ourselves on our 'love our carers' mantra, and we know how important it is to give thanks and recognition to our front line workers. We are always learning and building upon our success. I spend my spare time with my husband and my son; we enjoy family orientated activities as well as lots of sunny holidays! My son has multiple disabilities and that is the main reason I chose the care sector as my vocation. I have utilised my own personal experience as I know first hand how important having the right care in place is, that is why my son is a customer of Helping Hands.

Visiting care in Newcastle to suit your schedule

Whether you are looking for one visit a week or three calls a day the Newcastle team will be able to provide a package of care that suits exactly what you are looking for. Your carer or companion will be able to support you with personal care, medication support, house work and complex nursing care for more complex conditions.

If your care needs change and you need to alter your care routine that’s no problem at all. Our visiting home care service is entirely flexible ensuring you get the exact level of care that you need.

Newcastle live-in care for total peace of mind

Live-in care is a great option for those who are needing higher level care or more continuous support in the comfort of their own home. It is a great alternative to residential care as it allows you to maintain your independence and make your own choices-no matter how big or small.

We take the time to match a suitable live-in carer to you, based on your needs as well as your personality and interests, this way you can be reassured that your carer will be a great match to you.

Every live-in care package is tailored exactly to your needs and can be altered to accommodate any changes in circumstance.

Care Agency In Newcastle

We do our utmost to ensure paying for your care is as straightforward as possible. As a private care provider, rather than an agency, we directly employ all our carers, which means that you won’t be subjected to any hidden fees, surprise costs or time-consuming paperwork. It also means that our carers are aware of how much we value them and are able to dedicate their time and energy to providing you with the exceptional care that you deserve – rather than worrying about chasing payslips or spending precious time doing fiddly administration.

Domiciliary care to retain your independence

With domiciliary care, you are always in control of the type of care you receive and when you receive it. What’s more, we’ll fit into your existing schedule and find carers that suit your interests and needs. So, if you need extra support with your mobility and love watching the Magpies on a Saturday, we’ll find a fellow fan to make sure you get there safely and cheer them along with you too.

Dementia care and support in Newcastle

Dementia affects different people in different ways, so for this reason we make sure that your care package is perfectly created to suit exactly what you need. Every one of our carers goes through specific dementia care training to ensure they have the perfect skill set to accommodate the difficulties that the condition can bring.

Dementia care at home can help you to keep your usual routine, maintain familiarity, and limit any disruption-all of which are important in maintaining wellbeing, especially for those with dementia. We understand that dementia is a condition which affects entire families, not just those who have been diagnosed. For this reason, we have a team of dementia specialists who will happily speak with you about the dementia care we can provide in Newcastle.

Elderly care to support your independence

As we age general tasks and household chores can become more difficult, but that doesn’t mean your independence should be affected.

You might need a helping hand with the laundry once a week, or support getting in and out of bed, nonetheless, our team of expert carers are only a phone call away.

Tailored around you and your needs, our bespoke care plans are designed around not only your care needs, but your personality and interests too. You’ll gain more than a carer, you’ll gain a friend.

Respite care from the Newcastle branch

The Newcastle branch can provide respite support to suit any temporary needs. They can provide as little as one day if that is all you need, or up to four weeks if your care needs are not enduring.

Respite care can be great for:

  • Hospital discharge – If you need a few weeks of support following an operation or illness respite care is a great option.
  • Holidays – Respite care is convenient for support whilst you are on holiday, or if you need care for a loved one who will be remaining at home during your time away.
  • One off occasions – Family parties, weddings and university graduations are all events which might need a single day of support. You can have a carer who will travel with you and provide support throughout the entire day.

For more information on how we can provide care that suits your needs, why not get in touch with our team today?
