What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Our specialty is providing safe, effective care services that are perfectly customized to your unique lifestyle and preferences. No two people are alike, so why should their care be? The benefit of care received at home is that you can decide on the level that works for you, whether that’s just a few short visits throughout the week (i.e. visiting care) or more complete live-in care, respite care, or overnight care for extra peace of mind.
Our carers are compassionate, fully trained professionals who are there to make your life easier, whether that means lending a hand with shopping and meal prep, getting the housework sorted out, mobility in and around the home, or something as simple as some good company while you finish the morning crossword with a cup of tea.
Short term care
Helping Hands respite care services are designed specifically to support those people who ordinarily have a care worker in place, but who occasionally need some extra assistance when that carer has taken ill, stepped away to tend a family emergency, or simply gone on a much-needed holiday. Our carers are practical, helpful people who can be at hand to help within 24 hours of you reaching out, so you know that whatever happens, your loved one is taken care of. You can rest assured that everything will carry on as normal at home and be in order when you return.
We find our customers are sometimes overwhelmed by the options for home care in Oxford since they’re only looking for a little additional help at home to manage those household tasks that have become a bit trickier with age. We understand that not everyone wants to move entirely to a residential care facility, and that maintaining a sense of independence is important for plenty of seniors.
This is why our carers work hard to slot in around your preferred routine, keeping in place all those daily habits and schedules that you’re most familiar with. Our carers are there not just to provide practical support, but to offer good companionship and the occasional word of reassurance and compassion, too. Carers can also step in during those times you need a little extra help, such as in the days or weeks after a surgery or accident, or over the busy holiday period.
The physical, mental and emotional challenges that come with dementia conditions can be very hard to manage for a family. Patient and professional dementia care is there to keep your loved one safe and comfortable, while you gain the peace of mind that comes with knowing they’re in safe hands and in the place they feel happiest: at home. Dementia home care can be very reassuring for someone living with the symptoms of dementia conditions like Alzheimer’s, and empower them to carry on with living the life they want to live. We know that dementia care needs can sometimes change quite quickly and are never the same from day to day, which is why flexibility is so important.
Why Helping Hands is the ideal Home Care Agency in Oxford
While there are many options for care in Oxford today, Helping Hands has earned the reputation for genuinely caring for those we work with. We carefully match every one of our carers with our customers and take the time to get to know them personally. We are confident that we provide compassionate care and support of the same excellent standard we’d have for our own loved ones. We believe it’s this commitment to empathetic, professional care service that sets us in a class of our own.
