Helping Hands has been one of the UK’s leading home care specialists for more than three decades now, and we pride ourselves on having gained both the knowledge and expertise required to provide home care of a truly exceptional standard. Amongst our many other accreditations, we’re also certified and monitored by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England and the Care Inspectorate (CIW) in Wales. This is your assurance that home care in Romford you receive is safe, effective, and professional.
Unlike residential care home services, Helping Hands never provides one-size-fits-all care solutions. Instead, we work closely with those we care for to make sure they receive support tailored to their unique needs. We chiefly offer the choice of full-time live-in care (including overnight care for more round-the-clock peace of mind) or more intermediate term visiting care. The latter can be done on a schedule from as little as 30 minutes a week.
Our carers are fully trained and experienced, and can help with household tasks, personal grooming, shopping and errands, cooking, pet care, mobility, or even just a friendly chat on a relaxed afternoon. The care you or your oved one receives is entirely up to you. We know how important it is for people to retain a sense of independence, and to keep up with familiar routines in the comfort of their own homes.
A respite care worker is there to provide emergency or stand-in cover for a usual carer whenever they can’t be available. We can send an attentive and professional carer to cover for you if you are poorly, have a family emergency or simply want a break from care duties to go on holiday and recharge your batteries.
Respite care workers can fill in on short notice and can help out for as long as several days to as long as you need them to. This service is also ideal for temporary assistance after an accident like a fall, or after surgery or an illness where some tasks might be a little trickier to manage than normal.
Many seniors find the prospect of moving to a residential care facility unappealing, since they love their homes and the routines they’re comfortable with. We want to support them to live independently, so they’re confident knowing they have exactly the help they need, when they need it. With elderly home care, you’re guaranteed personal attentive support and a continuity of care you won’t find elsewhere, not to mention plenty of friendly companionship.
Whether you or your loved one are struggling with mobility or a health condition, our carers are on hand to work their magic. We always strive to understand our customer’s needs inside out, so we can provide precisely the assistance they need to live the lives they want to.
Seeking out dementia care can be an overwhelming process, particularly if it’s for a loved one living with the symptoms of dementia. It can be difficult to trust a carer with such an important task, yet you might well need the peace of mind that comes from knowing they’re in safe hands even when you can’t be present yourself.
Unlike many other home care providers in Romford, Helping Hands only works with directly employed staff that we have personally recruited, vetted and trained to our high standard. We know how important the human touch is; our carers are professionals who work with compassion, and know that with dementia, no two days are ever quite the same.
Our philosophy has always been to provide top-quality, client-focused care that is as flexible as you need it to be. We go above and beyond to make people’s lives a little brighter, every day, whether you need us for a long weekend or for the foreseeable future. We provide a comprehensive, bespoke service that respects the individual you are, so you can get on with living your life in the way you want to.
Whether it’s emergency or quick start care, overnight care, live-in and nurse-supported care or simply a visit once a fortnight for some much needed companionship – we’re here to help.
