With a beautiful coastline and less than 30 miles from the head of the stunning Norfolk Broads, the North Norfolk area boasts the town of Cromer, as well as many fascinating and historical attractions. The area can also celebrate the presence of industry leading home care company Helping Hands; established in 1989 to support people to remain in their own homes and still receive high-quality care, over 30 years later the company’s ethos hasn’t wavered. Our branch network across England and Wales continues this work in their local communities, including the expert team providing home care in North Norfolk.
From 30-minute visits up to full-time live-in care, your options for homecare are vast and totally flexible. Whether you require help with light housework, meal preparation or companionship, or perhaps have higher level, more complex needs, your flexible and personalised support plan will be written up just for you so that your routines and requirements are always at the forefront of the care delivered.
Whether you’ve noticed yourself slowing down and feeling more tired from doing general household tasks, or perhaps family members are concerned about your ability to manage on your own. Regardless of the circumstances, accepting care isn’t a reflection on your overall ability, it’s just an extra pair of hands to help you live your life to the fullest.
Visiting care is exactly what the name suggests; a carer visits you at pre-arranged times to deliver the care you need in your own home. That doesn’t mean that you can’t leave the house with your carer though, as many of our customers enjoy going shopping together or to appointments, for days out, and even holidays! Visits can be during the day or overnight, so if you have a more complex condition that needs monitoring around the clock, you can be confident that one of our overnight carers will be there for you.
Everyone needs a break from work from time to time and carers are no exception. Whether you are currently supported by family or a professional, they will have to have some time away at some point and that’s where respite care comes in. Respite usually conjures up images of having to leave your home temporarily and going to another place, but if you don’t want to leave your home, why should you? Having a short or longer-term respite carer come to you means you get the perfect continuation of your care, without the upheaval of unnecessary changes, and your loved one also gets the chance to take some well-earned time off. It’s a win-win situation!
When we say ‘emergency’ it naturally raises anxiety levels, as the thought of a family member, or even ourselves having to go through an unexpected turn of events can be daunting. Having to arrange emergency care due to an unexpected hospital discharge or perhaps a downturn in a pre-existing condition would be stressful for anyone, so why not let the North Norfolk team do the hard work for you? You can then focus on the important part of spending quality time with the person concerned.
Paul and his team in North Norfolk are dedicated professionals who are passionate about supporting their customers to live as independently as possible within their own homes. The team know how important it is to their customers to be in the place they love most, surrounded by the people, pets and memories that make them smile, and they do everything they can to ensure those customers get to stay in their own home for as long as possible whilst receiving their essential care. All of Helping Hands’ employees are Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) screened, so you know that when you open your front door to us you can be confident in who you’re letting in. Added to that, our carers undergo rigorous training when they join us and continue to develop their skills throughout their employment, so we believe you really are getting the best carers the industry can offer with Helping Hands. We are also pleased to be fully assessed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the industry regulator for England, who awarded our North Norfolk branch a ‘Good’ rating at their most recent inspection.
