With a historic Tudor centre full of half-timbered houses, Shrewsbury sits in a loop of the River Severn in a picturesque area of Shropshire. Boasting a medieval castle among its attractions, Shrewsbury is also home to a UK home care provider with a long history, Helping Hands. Formed in 1989, Helping Hands still holds itself accountable to the ethos it was founded on, namely, to provide high quality homecare to enable people to live comfortably and as independently as possible in their own home.
When you engage homecare from Helping Hands you don’t just receive expert care in your own home from highly trained and knowledgeable carers, but you also get the expertise of an entire network of experienced support staff as well. Whether you only require a 30 minute visit once a week, several calls per day or even full-time live-in care, you will always have the benefit of an entire company dedicated to the same goal; providing expert care in people’s own homes. With the benefit of a team of nurse clinicians, Helping Hands can also support clinical conditions as well as more complex care needs without any compromise of the care available to you. Why go through the upheaval of relocating to a residential home when you could remain in your own home?
You may feel that your general mobility has decreased, you need support to remember to take your medication or perhaps that you’d benefit from having someone in our home around the clock with you? Whatever the reason, you can be sure that the dedicated team in Shrewsbury will be able to advise you on what your individualised care package would involve and how often care should be delivered.
Perhaps you are cared for by family members presently, but they feel you would benefit from some professional care as well? Or it may be that you need care around the clock, even when they need to get some sleep. Consequently, you may benefit from an overnight carer who can be with you throughout the hours of darkness, to enable your loved ones to get some well-deserved rest.
When your regular carer needs some deserved time off, you need to know that your care will continue without disruption. Respite care from the Shrewsbury team will enable you to have a short or longer-term carer take over your care and make sure that your routines and preferences aren’t compromised in any way. Perhaps your family want to take you on holiday, but they feel you’d benefit from having a carer come along? Respite care means that you can have short-term support without the anxiety of having to move out of your house and enter a residential facility, even temporarily.
When care is needed in an emergency it can cause enormous anxiety for you and your loved ones if it’s not carried out correctly. However, if you have emergency care from Helping Hands’ Shrewsbury branch you will be able to have a carer in your home to look after every aspect of your needs within 24 hours, so if it’s a hospital discharge, or care after an accident for instance, you know we will ensure you are expertly looked after.
The whole team providing home care in Shrewsbury are dedicated to ensuring that your care is carried out expertly and exactly to your likes and routines. All of our carers are recruited locally and employed directly as, unlike some care companies, Helping Hands is not an agency; we believe it is important to the wellbeing of our carers to know they have the full support of their employer and we invest in their professional development to ensure they are highly trained and ready to meet their customers. We are also proud to be fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), and Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW) who oversee all aspects of our care delivery to ensure that it is as good as it can be. We are consistently rated ‘Good’ for all of our care, as is our branch network across England and Wales.
