As people get older, there are some things in life that get more difficult to carry out. It might be that you need some help carrying out housework, with personal hygiene, or mobility. It might be that you or your loved one is living with dementia or has more complex medical needs.
Elderly care involves supporting older people to live safely, comfortably, and with a good quality of life. This can sometimes be carried out in residential care, but here at Helping Hands, we believe that this is much better done at home. Elderly care ensures a carer comes to the home – either visiting or living-in – to assist with everything from companionship to the administration of medication.
We have over 30 years of experience in home care, enabling us to have developed and tweaked our services to be as effective as possible. We have a person-centred approach to the care that we provide, meaning that we support each and every one of our customers according to their specific needs and circumstances.
So, regardless of whether you could do with a few half-hour visits each week, several visits daily, or full-time live-in care, if you live in the Oxford area, our home care Oxford team is there for you.
Moving into and living in residential care can be daunting and less than ideal, especially for senior people or those that are living with dementia. This is why we believe that enabling you or your loved one to stay in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, surrounded by their beloved possessions, with the routines that they are accustomed to, with the partners and pets that they love, is so valuable.
Here at Helping Hands, we can enable this to happen, keeping our customers happier, healthier, more independent, and more in control over their lives.
Regardless of your particular situation, our senior care team is able to support you. It may be that you are living independently and could just do with a hand, or it might be that you need specific clinical nursing-led care. Our specialist home carers understand exactly what your requirements are, how to support you or your loved one in the best ways possible, whilst ensuring that they are as independent as possible.
In addition to the professional and friendly support that is provided, our fantastic teams of elderly home carers in Oxford are on hand to help with your or your loved one’s day to day care – allowing quality time to be spent with friends and family, and special memories to be made.
Fitting with our person-centred care approach, here at Helping hands, we have a range of different care packages available to our senior customers. We appreciate that everybody is different, with different requirements, routines, and who likes things to be done in different ways. Our fabulous elderly carers in Oxford have the knowledge, skills, and experience to be able to meticulously follow care plans and provide the safest, most effective, and most beneficial support possible.
The array of duties that our friendly and professional care staff can perform for our senior customer, include:
We are also able to provide temporary care for people who are recovering from illness or a stay in hospital, and respite care – at short notice or planned in advance – to allow regular carers to take some time off.
We are inspected and regulated by the independent body that is tasked by the government to ensure high-quality care in England – the CQC (Care Quality Commission). We are also proud to work closely with organisations that represent the needs of our customers and their carers.
Our team of expert elderly home carers is on hand to provide support at short notice if you need it. We appreciate that sometimes things happen beyond our control – accidents, illness, or problems with other carers, for example, and our emergency support services are always available at as little as 24 hours’ notice to come to help to support you or your loved one.
If you are based in the Oxford area and are looking for some extra support for yourself or an elderly loved one, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss how we can help you. Getting in contact is easy – you can telephone, email, or drop by for a chat.
