Domiciliary care is just another way of describing the care that you receive at home. Usually, this defines a range of services designed to keep you as independent as possible in the home you love, meaning that you don’t have to relocate to a residential, care, or nursing home.
You shouldn’t be concerned at the prospect of needing additional support in your home, as having a Helping Hands carer from Portsmouth supporting you will quickly feel less like a stranger and more like an old friend.
We’ve been providing the highest quality domiciliary care to our customers since we were established in 1989, and because we’ve been doing it for so long it’s no surprise we’re considered the UK’s experts in care at home.
There are many reasons why someone may need additional support at home, whether it’s in the short or long-term, on an occasional basis, or even full-time with someone living in your home. You may be living with a pre-existing, long-term condition that has gradually become more pronounced, or perhaps you’ve been in hospital after surgery, or recently had an accident.
Whatever the reason, you will benefit from having our dedicated and compassionate carers in your home, carrying out all the tasks you need to make sure you live your very best life.
We offer care at home on both a visiting care and live in care basis, although regardless of which service you choose, you’ll always have exemplary levels of care delivered by professional and empathetic staff.
Visiting care starts from just 30 minutes per week, and can help in a variety of ways, such as with your personal care, medication, mobility and preparing your meals. Our carers can also help out around the house with vacuuming, laundry and other housework tasks, as well as supporting you to access the local community and attend important appointments.
Whether your carer is with you once a week or around the clock, they’ll always support you to remain as independent as possible, as at Helping Hands that’s our number one priority.
Our carers are amazing at what they do – in fact without them, we couldn’t support our thousands of customers across England and Wales, every single day of the year. There’s a reason they are so special though and that comes down to our thorough selection and screening process that makes sure only the most naturally caring people make it through to work for us.
We’re so careful about who we take on because we need to know that you’re only having people coming to your home who should be doing so, as well as keeping your loved ones happy in the knowledge that you’re being properly supported.
Our services are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can be confident that you’ll always be in the best hands with Helping Hands.
You can contact us in several different ways to have your questions around domiciliary care in the Portsmouth area answered, including calling our friendly customer care team any day of the week.
You can also chat to us via our live service on our website, or if you prefer, you can arrange a call back for a time that suits you best.
