When it comes to arranging home care in Solihull for yourself or a loved one, you want a care provider that you can trust and totally rely on, which is exactly what our Helping Hands carers will do, and much more.
As well as fully supporting you at home and enabling you to live the life you want to, the Solihull team are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), so you can rest assured that the care you’re receiving is safe, responsive and overseen by the governing body for care in England.
From helping out with the vacuuming, laundry and shopping, to supporting you with bathing and dressing in the mornings and evenings, we can support you with all elements of daily living.
Unlike care agencies, we don’t charge per task that we support you with and instead offer an all-inclusive cost for the time that we see you. That way, you can have flexible care that adapts to your changing needs. One week, you might just need extra support sorting out your cupboards and changing the beds, but the next week you may want to go to Touchwood for the afternoon for a shopping trip. We’re firm believers of your care being tailored completely around you.
Needing care at home is completely different for each individual, and we always bear this is mind when creating your support plan. From elderly care around your home if you’re unsteady on your feet, to assistance for young adults wishing to continue their studies or work – home care is so much more than providing care in someone’s home. It’s about ensuring that they are supported with all the elements of their life that they need.
You may just need a little extra help with getting to and from appointments or visiting friends in Solihull, continuing your lifestyle in the way you want to. Visiting care means that you can have support throughout the week for whatever you require – from assistance with getting washed and dressed in the morning, preparing your meals and companionship too. We’ll even be there for you during the night so you never have to worry that you’re alone.
If you care for a loved one, it’s really important that you take some time out for yourself to live your own life and take a well-earned rest. Respite care can become a vital part of your normal care routine, as it allows both of you to have a break from one another whilst your loved one is in the safe and capable hands of our Solihull team. We’ll make sure that we keep your existing routines in place so that we can step in and continue the care you would normally deliver in a seamless fashion.
It’s not always possible to plan for care; you might have just been discharged from hospital after an operation or your regular caregiver may have to take an urgent break for personal reasons. Whatever your situation, emergency care from the Solihull team will usually be in place within 24 hours and sometimes sooner if you’re in a crisis. We’re always prepared for any last minute changes or alterations, so you can rest assured that we have everything covered.
Denny takes great pride in her team of carers, who are all completely dedicated to supporting people across Solihull and the surrounding areas. As with all of our carers at Helping Hands, our team in Solihull are carefully selected not on their previous experience but on their innate ability to put others first and truly care.
Once recruited, they are then assessed via our in-house training programme, learning the skills they need to provide exceptional care. Learning modules include safeguarding, first aid, dementia, medication, personal care and manual handling. New recruits are also fully vetted by a Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check, as well as various character references.
