We understand that seeking out home care for yourself or for someone else can be an overwhelming process. At Helping Hands, we know that such a big decision isn’t one to be taken lightly, and that you need to be confident in the people you trust to take care of your loved ones. We’ve been in the home care industry for many years, and in this time we’ve earnt a reputation for providing tailored and professional home care in Rugby to the highest possible standards.
We’re verified by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England and the Care Inspectorate (CIW) in Wales, so you can have peace of mind that our performance is routinely monitored. We like to think that our other accreditations also speak to our commitment to quality and truly outstanding customer service.
The Helping Hands philosophy is that when it comes to care, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. Instead, we want to work closely with you and your family to offer tailored support to maintain the life you’re already living. The care you receive depends on you and your needs. We can offer either live-in care for more round-the-clock support, or send a fully trained care worker to your home at intervals that suit you, from as little as 30 minutes a week.
Our carers are experts in working around you. They’re truly passionate about making a big difference in small ways, every day. That may mean helping with shopping, chores, errands, housework, walking the dog, assistance with personal care and grooming, taking medications, mobility in and out the home, exercise, healthy meal prep or simply a little companionship over a cup of tea and the daily crossword.
Our respite care services are for all those situations where the ordinary care worker is not available. If you’re a carer yourself, you may need to step away occasionally to tend to your own business or a family emergency elsewhere. You might also just need a break or holiday now and then, to recharge your batteries.
A Helping Hands respite carer can make sure that everything at home carries on as normal. You can rest assured that, whether you need us for a day or two weeks, your loved one will be well looked after in the comfort and safety of their own homes. Respite care can also be a godsend in the event you need an extra pair of hands recovering after surgery or an accident like a fall.
Our care workers are specially trained to offer the best in elderly care in the place where people will always feel happiest: at home. We know how important it is to maintain all the familiar routines of daily life, so we take care to match every client with a carer that will understand and respect their unique needs. Some seniors may only need a little extra help around the home for those activities that have become more challenging with age.
Others might want more comprehensive practical and emotional support as they manage the symptoms of health conditions or limited mobility. Our carers can stay overnight if needed, and we can even arrange overlapping care shifts so that you can be sure there is always someone standing by.
Many of our loyal customers are those who are living with forms of dementia. We know that the cognitive and physical symptoms of dementia can be a challenge to deal with, and that families can find themselves anxious to secure the best care for their loved ones. Our carers are specially trained and experienced in dementia care, and bring an enormous degree of compassion and patience to everything they do.
We know that with dementia, needs can vary day to day, and that’s why we feel that bespoke, flexible home care is such a wonderful option. Moving permanently to a residential home care in Rugby, on the other hand, may prove too distressing for elders with dementia, but with home care, you are guaranteed a continuity of care and a level of attention that can be greatly reassuring.
Helping Hands is most proud of our excellent carers, who we have recruited, vetted and trained extensively so that they can best reflect our passion for the work we do. Unlike other groups, Helping Hands never uses agency staff, but builds a close, direct relationship with every carer we employ.
If you have any questions about whether home care might be right for you, feel free to get in touch and we’d be happy to have a friendly chat about how we can help.
