Northampton has a fascinating history, with evidence of settlement as far back as the bronze age. Therefore, it’s only fitting that one of the UK’s leading home care providers with a long history of its own, should be in the town. Helping Hands was founded in 1989 with the goal of providing the highest quality home care to people in every region, and with branches across the whole of England and Wales, that goal is fulfilled on a daily basis for thousands of customers. Contact our friendly team providing home care in Northampton to see how we could be supporting you or your loved ones today.
The idea of having a carer coming into your home can be daunting at first, however you will quickly discover that having someone come to you rather than you having to move out of the home you love, is the much preferred option. Flexible care packages that put you at the heart of your care journey are the norm at the Northampton branch and the friendly team will be able to talk you and your loved ones through what you can expect before your carer first arrives. You might need help with personal care first thing in the morning, or mobility support to go to scheduled appointments, but regardless of what your carer can do for you, they will always encourage your independence and make sure you’re living your best life possible in the home you love. Supports starts from just 30 minute visits once a week and can go all the way up to full-time live-in care, so let us provide you the perfect care package today.
Perhaps you would appreciate a carer for some housework help, meal preparation or to support you with attending essential appointments? Regardless of why you need them, a carer can help with a multitude of tasks both inside and outside of the house, so if you’ve found yourself struggling with everyday errands, perhaps due to age-related frailties, then a carer can help.
With visits starting at just 30 minutes, there is so much flexibility in the support we can offer. Perhaps it’s overnight that you’d like someone to be there? It could be that you have medication that determines the need to be woken every few hours, but you don’t want loved ones to have broken sleep. If that’s the case, a carer can be with you overnight so that you never feel isolated during the hours of darkness.
When you’re living with dementia it’s really important that your surroundings give you a sense of comfort and safety, and the best way to do that is to remain in your own home, with precious mementos around you. Everyone’s journey with dementia is individual; even if living with the same condition, no two people will have exactly the same experience. Therefore you need to know that your care will be individualised too. Our care packages are tailored around you and your requirements, meaning that whatever type of dementia you’re living with, whether Alzheimer’s, vascular or perhaps something rarer, our carers can support you to live your very best life possible, in the home you’ve always loved.
When an emergency happens it’s usually by its nature unpredictable, so when you’ve already got the worry and stress of finding out a loved one needs extra support at home, your first call should be to the compassionate Northampton team so they can alleviate some of that anxiety for you. Perhaps you live abroad, or across the country from your loved one and you get a call telling you that they are being discharged from hospital unexpectedly? While you’re wondering what to do, the team in Northampton will already be working on getting a carer into your loved one’s home that same day.
