Southend-on-Sea is known for its long, historic pier, but also for housing the UK’s foremost homecare company, Helping Hands. Founded in 1989, Helping Hands has never wavered from its original vision of supporting people to live as independently as possible in their own homes; an ethos that still drives us now. Our friendly Southend-on-Sea team are experts in supporting people in the local area to stay safe and well at home, which is a real alternative to having to uproot from the place you love and relocate to a residential care home when you need extra support. Our dedicated carers will come to you at home and take care of your every need so that you get to stay at home, surrounded by the people, pets and memories that mean the world to you.
Whether you need a 30-minute visit once a week or several longer calls a day, our carers providing home care in Southend-on-Sea will be able to support you with every aspect of your care needs. From medication, mobility, meal preparation and much more, you and your loved ones will be able to relax, knowing that every aspect of your care is being undertaken professionally and to the highest standards. Your personalised support plan will detail every aspect of your routines and requirements, so that your carers can be sure they are carrying out your care to your exact specifications. If you feel that you would benefit from having someone with you all the time you could even have a carer live-in with you at home, meaning that you will have someone there around the clock to care for you, provide companionship and ensure your needs are met.
You may have been thinking about care at home for some time now, or perhaps it’s your loved ones who have suggested it. Maybe it’s because you’ve felt that everyday tasks are becoming more difficult, you’re recovering from a fall or you’d appreciate some companionship; regardless of the reason, you can be reassured by the presence of one of our dedicated and compassionate carers in your life.
Whether you need care during the day, overnight or both, our carers will be able to support you with every aspect of your needs. Tasks that are done during the day can also be repeated at night, so if you find it hard to sleep or your daytime carers need to rest, one of the Southend team’s experienced carers can stay with you all night.
You may already have a long-term carer in place who you’re very happy with, but what happens when they need to take a break? It can fall to family members to put their lives on hold and ensure that your care is continued as best as they can manage. Alternatively, you may have a family member caring for you full-time now, but they are desperately in need of some time away to reconnect with family, or just themselves. If this is the case, respite care in your own home can be the answer, as it means you won’t have to relocate to a residential home temporarily while they take a break.
Emergency care can be needed for several reasons, such as an unexpected hospital discharge, support after a fall, or returning home for the final few days together. If you need care in an emergency you need to be reassured that a carer can be in place within 24 hours so that you can concentrate on the important things, like spending quality time together.
The whole team in Southend-on-Sea are dedicated to supporting their customers in the local area in any way they can, so if you are looking for a care company with experienced and compassionate carers, look no further. Every one of the carers are sourced and recruited locally and because Helping hands isn’t an agency, all are employed directly, meaning all you have to concentrate on are your care needs and the friendly carer who you’ll enjoy welcoming into your home. Rigorous training is also carried out and continuous professional development undertaken, so you can be sure that our carers are amongst the most knowledgeable and current in the industry. We are also proud to be regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who ensure that the highest standards are maintained throughout registered care providers, and our branches are consistently rated as ‘Good’ by them.
