Companion care from our home care in Northwich team offers you or your loved one the chance to benefit from having a Helping Hands carer visit or live in with you in your home and be a friendly face to share life with. It’s easy to think of care as something that’s put in place to provide physical and practical assistance, but looking after your emotional well-being is just as important. Since 1989, we’ve been supporting our customers to live fulfilling, independent lives in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of their own home. Our companion carers have all been specifically recruited for their fun and compassionate personalities, so they make for excellent company at those times when you’re perhaps feeling a bit isolated or unsupported.
Whether you’ve been feeling lonely for a while, find yourself in need of a bit of extra company from time to time, or would like someone to help you maintain an active, social lifestyle, companion care can benefit you in a number of ways. Unlike traditional care services, where the focus is on helping with your practical, day-to-day needs, your companion carer is there to help you maintain your mental health – whether that’s through accompanying you on day trips, watching your favourite tv show with you, helping you with the gardening, or anything else you might fancy.
When you opt to partner with Helping Hands Northwich for companion care, you’ll benefit from a care plan that is completely built around your preferences – right down to even the smallest details. For instance, we’ll match you with a friendly companion who shares your interests, hobbies and personality, so that they’re someone you’ll really enjoy spending time with, and you can choose when and how often they visit. And, should your requirements and routines ever change, we can of course make any adjustments to your support plan that you’d like.
At Helping Hands, we’re proud of our reputation as being home to the very best carers in the UK. Our recruitment and assessment process is very selective – we only look for candidates who display a passion for looking after others, and who possess a naturally compassionate and empathetic personality. To ensure they’re a perfect fit for us and for you, every carer undergoes enhanced-DBS checks. Then, when they start with us, they’ll enrol on our industry-leading training programme, where over the course of four days they’ll undertake a number of specialist care modules such as dementia care, moving and handling, medication, and health and safety. Furthermore, for your full peace of mind, our home care in Northwich is independently regulated and monitored by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
