Why choose home care at Helping Hands Preston?
Preston became England’s 50th city as part of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee celebration in 2012 and therefore it’s only fitting that it also hosts one of the UK’s leading home care providers – Helping Hands. Since our foundation in 1989, Helping Hands has worked tirelessly to achieve our founding aim, which is to provide care to people in their own homes so that they can remain in the place they love most, whilst living as independently as possible. The Preston care team support many customers in the local area to do just that, so if you are looking for care then look no further than your local Helping Hands’ Preston branch.Request a callback Email us
What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Whether it’s a 30 minute call once a week for companionship and coffee, support to get your groceries, or several visits a day for more complex conditions, the team in Preston are experts in supporting people in the local area to remain at home and be cared for as they wish. You may even prefer the idea of a live-in carer at home with you so that they are available around the clock, but whatever your needs and preferences, the team in Preston will be able to help. Our carers undergo training in every aspect of care before they begin visiting their customers; such as manual handling, medication, dementia care and safeguarding, so you can be completely confident in their abilities, whether they’re new to the industry or have been caring for years.
Why you may need home care
Perhaps you’ve felt yourself slowing down recently, or it may be a family member has said that you’d benefit from some care at home. Regardless of the reason, you can be sure that the Preston team will work hard to ensure you receive the care you need, while respecting your routines and the way you like things done.
Carers for limited hour visits
While we can support you from 30 minutes once a week, you may have a condition that requires several more calls than that, possibly several a day. However, were you aware that we can also support you overnight? You may find sleep difficult, have medication that needs to be administered throughout the night or just require some companionship during the hours of darkness, but regardless of the reason, one of our expert overnight carers can attend to you at any hour of the day or night.
Intermittent long-term visits
Perhaps you already have a long-term carer who is due for a break, or perhaps you are the carer yourself? The team in Preston can support you with respite care on a short or longer-term basis, for the permanent carer to take a well-earned holiday or perhaps for them to attend to an emergency situation at home.
Carers for immediate situations
You may have been told that your loved one is unexpectedly being discharged from hospital or needs immediate emergency homecare after an operation. Whatever the emergency, you need to know that there is a care company who can get your loved one the care they need within the same day. The Preston team will work with you to get you the right carer into your or your loved one’s home as quickly as possible, so that you can be confident they’re being looked after exactly as they’d want.
