Also known as ‘reablement care’, intermediate care is a form of short-term care that is designed to help someone to recover at home after an accident, illness or operation. At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing dedicated, person-centred home care to our customers for over 30 years – enabling them to remain independent and secure in their own homes. Our Northallerton team can provide a wide range of specialist care services to help you during your recovery and enable you to get back on your feet as quickly and safely as possible.
Intermediate care is ideal for those times when you know you’ll need additional assistance for a short, fixed duration of time – typically a maximum of six weeks. It might be that you’ve got a surgery planned and will need help during the recovery phase, or perhaps you’ve incurred an injury and need a bit of support getting back on your feet. An intermediate carer can provide physical and practical support during your recovery period, meaning you’ll have someone to look after your normal routines and chores as well as aiding your recovery through mobility support, personal care and assistance with medication. And, if you find yourself needing intermediate care in an emergency, your Northallerton team will typically be able to provide you with a carer in your home within 24 hours of your initial phone call.
At Helping Hands, we pride ourselves on providing a bespoke care service that places you – the customer – at the heart of every decision and aspect of your care. Your intermediate care plan will be tailored to your specific needs and wishes, so that you’ve got just the right type and level of care for your condition and circumstances. We’re able to offer visiting care from 30 minutes per week, and live-in care for 24/7 support, so whatever your needs, we’re sure to be able to help.
With over 2500 Trustpilot reviews and an average score of 4.8, it’s safe to say we’re the UK’s most widely-trusted home care provider. One of the reasons our customers rate our care so highly is because we only hire the very best people to our care teams, and our carers providing home care in Northallerton are no exception to that. All of our carers have a compassionate and dedicated approach to their roles, and have undergone numerous background checks to ensure they’re the sort of person you’d be happy to have in your home. Every new carer will enrol on our four-day training and assessment process, after which they will continue to participate in regular refresher courses to keep their knowledge and skills topped up. Furthermore, our intermediate care is subject to regulation from the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can have full confidence in our commitment to excellence for every aspect of your care.
