Intermediate care is short-term support designed to look after people on a short-term basis while they recover from surgery, illness or an accident. At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing expert home care services – including intermediate care – to customers across England and Wales for over 30 years. In that time, we’ve helped tens of thousands of people to remain in their own homes and be comfortable, independent and secure. Our friendly team are on hand to provide you or your loved one with empathetic, person-centred home care in Romford during your recovery period.
Intermediate care differs from other types of home care in that it is only used for a short spell of time – typically anything up to five weeks. This makes it ideal for people who anticipate the need for care but only on a temporary basis. For instance, you might have a surgery booked in which you know will necessitate a prolonged period of recovery. An intermediate carer can provide practical support while you’re out of action, and physical support to help speed up the recovery process – as well as valued companionship.
We’ve been providing home care for long enough to know that the best care services are always tailored to the needs of the individual. One of the main advantages of home care is that it allows you to maintain your normal routines, activities and lifestyle, and our care plans will always take your preferences into account so that you can continue to live independently. Your local care manager will visit you at home to undertake an assessment of your needs and take the time to understand how we can best support you, and then we’ll work with you to develop a care plan that ensures you’re never left feeling isolated or unsupported.
We’re extremely particular about who we recruit to our home care in Romford team, as we want to ensure we’re only hiring the kindest, most compassionate carers who share our family values. We were founded as a family-run care provider in 1989, and although we’re no longer a family company, our identity is still defined by our origins. That’s why we’re so committed to making sure every customer receives the exceptional support they deserve, from carers who are truly passionate about their roles. Every Helping Hands carer receives our comprehensive carer training when they start with us, and will enrol on regular refresher courses to ensure their knowledge and skillset are kept up to date with the latest care industry standards and best practices. And, for your total peace of mind, your support will be fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
