Other services we provide at this branch

Friendly visiting care to support your independence

Visiting care varies from weekly check-ins to regular visits on a daily basis. Whether you require a friendly companion or clinical support, our visiting care team are on hand to provide the assistance you need with a compassionate, person-centred approach that prioritises your independence and wellbeing.

With flexible packages tailored to each customer, our visiting carers are available as little or often as you need to ensure you are receiving all the support necessary to help you upkeep a happy and healthy routine. We have over 30 years of experience visiting the homes of people throughout England & Wales; in that time we’ve built on our foundation of kindness to provide a service that is knowledgeable, reliable and exceptional in its delivery.

Full-time live-in care in Southborough

For support around the clock, our live-in care team are on hand to provide a companion matched to your personality, with an understanding of your interests and a commitment to preserving your wellbeing. Whatever difficulties you face in your daily routine, your live-in carer will be on hand, day or night, to provide the assistance you need for maintaining a safe and independent lifestyle at home. 

As opposed to the restrictions of a care home, with a live-in carer, you will retain complete control of your routine, while a professional is on hand to assist you with any hassle you encounter. All the while, you will be receiving support from somebody with genuine regard for your welfare and tireless desire to build a friendship.

Domiciliary care in Southborough

With domiciliary care, you can receive the support you need to remain at home and maintain your independence. From helping you keep on top of medication, to handling household chores, to accompanying you on days out, your domiciliary carer will be by your side as little or often as you need to upkeep your routine without the need to leave your home. 

Unlike a care home, domiciliary care allows you to retain the freedom of keeping control of your routine. With no set meal times or visiting hours, you are able to choose the structure of each day with the help of a professional alongside you to support you with any difficulties. Your domiciliary carer provides more than general assistance and is dedicated to giving you the care you need with a commitment to companionship.

What makes us better than a care agency in Southborough?

While we provide carers to the homes of people nationwide, all of them are directly employed by Helping Hands and undertake a commitment to comprehensive training, ongoing professional development and regular monitoring. Unlike a care agency, we receive regulation via the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure our service is of an industry-leading standard. 

With no referral fees or hidden costs, you pay only for the care you receive as part of a package that is tailored to you and can change as your needs do. Furthermore, we make it our priority to care for our staff; in doing so, we aim to provide carers who feel valued and motivated in their work, so that the service they provide is the best it can possibly be.

Friendly dementia care at home

Throughout every stage of dementia, in all its forms, support and guidance are essential for the wellbeing of those affected. For the families, as well as those living with dementia, receiving the right advice from the right source can make all the difference to making the most out of each day, and our dementia care team are here to guide you and your family through every step of the way.

In addition to understanding the condition and finding individual solutions to overcome its challenges, the benefit of staying at home is invaluable to maintaining a positive and constantly reassuring process for all involved. Our dementia care team can provide immediate support and will guide you in your attempts to combat the confusion and anxiety of dementia with the preservation of love and happiness.

Elderly care in Southborough

Whether you struggle keeping on top of housework, getting around the shops, or managing your medication, your elderly carer will be on hand to make all those daily tasks a little easier, while treating you with the respect and compassion you deserve.

Living as a retiree or grandparent is a wonderful period of time in a person’s life; watching your family grow and bestowing your life experience is invaluable for creating memories. For the elderly, this period of life can be bitter-sweet as you become less physically able than your previous years, and caring for your health requires much more attention than it used to. With an elderly carer, you can find a companion who becomes an extension of your family.

Urgent respite care for short-term support

For short-term assistance or for an urgent alternative to your usual provider, our respite care team are on hand to deliver the support you need for a time specified by you. When your usual carer takes a break or unforeseen circumstances arrive where you are left without care, you can rely on us to provide the support you need to maintain an independent lifestyle at home.

With a respite carer, you can receive the additional support you need as somebody who has recently been discharged from hospital, needs accompanying on a short break, or has been left without care for a short period of time. Give our team a call to learn more about how we can provide temporary support for your independence at home.
