While there are many options for home care in Seaham today, we pride ourselves on being the tried-and-true choice for care of the highest quality. Amongst our other accreditations, we’re also certified and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England and the Care Inspectorate (CIW) in Wales, so you can trust that with us, you’ll be receiving home care services of the best standard.
Our carers are not only brilliant and truly compassionate people, they’re also extensively trained professionals whose expertise is regularly refreshed via our training courses. We have even been given the accolade of Centre of Excellence – the only home care provider who has received this honour.
When you first reach out to Helping Hands, our aim is to determine exactly how we can work around your unique needs and lifestyle. The advantage of care delivered at home is that support can be tailored to your needs and preferences. For example, we can offer everything from nurse supported, 24/7, live-in care to a single 30-minute care call once a week to water the plants and help around the house.
The level of care you receive is up to you. Our carers are happy to help with shopping and cook a nutritious meal, offer assistance with mobility, grooming and daily errands, or simply be a friendly companion during the day, offering emotional support and reassurance. Depending on your unique situation, you may need overnight care, emergency care (we can have a carer to you within 24 hours of you reaching out), or respite care on a more short-term basis. Whatever you most need assistance with, Helping Hands is there to make it happen.
We know that as fulfilling as care work can be, even the most dedicated carer needs some down time occasionally, to recharge their batteries or sort out urgent matters elsewhere. But you don’t need to worry – Helping Hands can put your mind at rest by sending a carer to fill in for you while you’re away. There will be minimal disruption to the day’s ordinary routines, and you can have one less thing to worry about, knowing that your loved one is being well looked after for as long as you need.
Some of our customers also seek respite care when an extra pair of hands might be needed. You can call us to help in the days or weeks after an operation or accident; we’d be happy to find ways to make you comfortable and get you back on your feet again.
Seniors with mobility or health condition issues might need a little extra support around the home, and that’s where Helping Hands comes in. We take the time to match every one of our customers with the elderly carer we think will get on with them best. Though our carers come from all walks of life, they are all fully trained, experienced and passionate about helping people live the lives they want to live, in the homes they love.
Helping Hands specializes in professional, compassionate dementia care services that prioritize your loved one’s unique preferences and personality. Both the mental and physical symptoms of dementia conditions can be difficult to manage at times, but the right carer can provide an ongoing sense of support, stability, and care that keeps all the comforting old routines firmly in place. We can also provide quick start or urgent care if necessary. You never need to worry; Helping Hands carers are flexible enough to work around the sometimes changing needs of seniors living with dementia.
Unlike with moving a loved one to a residential care home facility, care delivered at home offers the benefit of being completely tailored to you. Our carers are some of the finest and best trained in the industry, and will be on hand to provide you or your loved one their complete attention, whether you need them for a day or two, or for months at a time. It’s this commitment to truly personalized and flexible professional care that we think makes us one of the UK’s leading home care agencies.
