What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
With visits starting from just 30 minutes, you can guarantee that one of our friendly carers will be the perfect match for you and your care needs. If you would appreciate help with housework, mobility, preparing meals, medication or to help you to access the local area, we can help. Having care in your own home is very different to moving into residential care; for a start you get to remain in the place you love most, surrounded by your memories, possessions and your beloved pets. You may have found that getting out of bed in the morning is more difficult than it used to be, you’re nervous about falling in the bath or perhaps a family member has raised their concerns to you. Regardless of the reasons, having carers from the Ramsgate branch will ensure that you are supported by caring and compassionate professionals who will respect your dignity and promote your independence.
Why you may need home care in Ramsgate
It may be that your loved ones are becoming concerned about you managing on your own at home, or perhaps you’ve voiced concerns to them about the same. It can be nerve-wracking to feel you are going to allow a stranger into your home to help you with personal tasks, but this is understandable. All of Helping Hands’ carers are Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) screened, so you and your loved ones can be sure that only people who should be entering your home are doing so.
Carers for limited hour visits
When your carers attend, they will be following a personalised support plan that will have been drawn up by one of the management team, in conjunction with you and your decision makers. This ensures that even if your carer is only with you for a limited visit it guarantees that everything you need doing will be accomplished, and your routines will be respected and followed. You may prefer someone to be with you overnight rather than in the day, which if you have trouble sleeping or need regular medication may suit you better. Overnight care can ensure that routines which your family may be catering for during the day can still be delivered, even while they are getting some well-earned rest.
Intermittent long-term visits
When you are the carer it is essential that you are taking regular breaks, so perhaps you are looking for respite care for a loved one while you go on holiday, spend time with the family or just enjoy some solitude? Respite care can be short or longer-term and it involves having a carer take over from whoever normally undertakes the person’s care. Perhaps you already have long-term care in place but it’s time your regular carer took a break? The team in Ramsgate will be happy to discuss your options with you and explain more about how respite care works.
Carers for immediate situations
When emergency care is needed it can be a highly stressful time, especially if you live far from where the emergency is taking place. You may have been told that a loved one is having an unexpected discharge from hospital, needs support after an accident or perhaps wants to come home to receive palliative care. Whatever the reason, trying to find reputable carers in a hurry can be difficult, so why not come straight to the team in Ramsgate so that they can take the strain for you? They can have a carer in your home within 24 hours meaning that your loved one gets the support they need, and you get a chance to prepare for whatever the eventuality.
