Visiting care and live-in care in Stratford-upon-Avon

As the birthplace of possibly the most famous writer in the English Language, William Shakespeare, Stratford-upon-Avon is bursting with history and culture. But with so much to see and do in the area for old and young alike, joining your loved ones on a family day out or heading out for your weekly shop can be difficult – especially if you’re in need of additional support. That’s why we have a dedicated team of Helping Hands carers in Stratford-upon-Avon to provide dedicated, person-centred care that supports you at home and out in the local community.

Committed to ensuring that you receive the best condition-led care available, the team of carers are here to offer support for families across Stratford-upon-Avon, Alcester, Bidford, Ettington, Leamington Spa, Wellesbourne, Welford, Radford Semele, Hampton Magna, Studley, Kineton and the surrounding areas.

Meet Denny Bruce, our Area Care Manager, Stratford-Upon-Avon

Hello, I’m Denny, area manager for Helping Hands’ Central region. It’s my responsibility to meet with customers to gain feedback on a regular basis and ensure that they are happy with our service, to meet potential new customers face-to-face and to manage a wonderful team of visiting carers, supporting them with supervisions and appraisals. I am also a Dementia Champion, which has really developed my understanding of support and supervision for those working with, and living with, the condition.

Visiting care to suit you in Stratford-upon-Avon

Mary Lee founded Helping Hands in 1989 in order to give those that needed a little extra support exactly what they needed to feel safe and independent in the comfort of their homes. Over 30 years later, we are proud to have been providing the exact same level of person-centred home care to thousands of individuals across England and Wales.

With family values at our heart, we understand how important it is for you to feel safe in your home, which is why the team will work with you to build a personalised care plan that encourages and enables you to live independently at home and out in the local community.

Regardless of your condition, our Stratford-upon-Avon team will get to know you and your requirements so that we can find a care solution that suits you. Whether you need 30-minute visits every now and again or more complex support throughout the day or night, we’re here to ensure that you can feel safe and supported in the place you know best.

Live-in care with you at the centre

We believe that everybody should be able to live the life they want to – regardless of their condition. Our aim is to support those that need a little extra help each day to be able to live a life that is entirely on their terms where they are able to continue to do the things they love the most. So, if literature is your passion and you want to take full advantage of living near the birthplace of the most famous playwright in British history, then your live-in carer will support you to do just that. What’s more, we’ll work closely with you to handpick a carer that is suited to your personality, hobbies and interests; so your carer won’t just provide practical care, they’ll be there to enjoy each day with you and become an extended part of your family.

We understand it can be daunting to invite someone new to live in your home, but the team are here to offer guidance and support to alleviate your worries and help you through every step of your journey with care. And with dedicated live-in care packages for anyone from the age of 18 all the way up to 100 and beyond, we can provide the right support for you – regardless of your age, needs or circumstances. So whether you need a live-in carer that enables you to retain a full-time job, or you are in your more senior years and you need support with your mobility and personal care; the team will ensure that you have a dedicated, unintrusive live-in care package that is built by and around you.

Domiciliary care with you in control

The great thing about domiciliary care from our Stratford-upon-Avon team is that it is designed with you at its centre. You have the freedom to choose the frequency and intensity of your care, so if you want visits that are little and often or more intensive support for a complex condition, we’ll get to know you and your needs, routines and preferences to provide support that is entirely on your terms.

Our aim is to ensure that you remain as independent as possible in the comfort of your own home, that’s why the team will work closely with you and your loved ones to provide a bespoke care plan that is focused entirely around you. Whether you want support with the practicalities such as personal care and household chores, or simply a friendly face to pop in for a cup of tea and a chat every now and then – we’ll be there for you whenever you need us.

Specialist dementia care from our award-winning team

We understand that the time following a dementia diagnosis can be unnerving for you and your surrounding family – especially with the complexities and uncertainties that often come hand-in-hand with the condition. With over 100 different variants of dementia, understanding each of the symptoms and how they affect each individual can be very overwhelming. But with dedicated dementia support from our Stratford-upon-Avon team, we’re here to provide the information, guidance and support you need so that you can live well with dementia.

From memory loss to challenging behaviour, experiencing the symptoms of dementia can be upsetting for you and your loved ones. But with our dementia specialists enabling you to remain in the familiarity of your own surroundings, we’ll get to know the person behind the dementia so that we can provide a care plan that helps you to feel safe and supported through every step of your dementia journey.

Elderly care for your peace of mind

The inevitable signs of aging can be unsettling for you and your loved ones – especially if you are starting to feel unsteady on your feet and your loved ones are unable to pop in and check on you very often. With personalised elderly care from the team, we’ll put a bespoke plan in place that gives you the support you need, whenever you need it.

Whether you are living as a couple and you’d like some help to alleviate the pressure of supporting each other, or you’re living alone and you’d like a friendly face to pop in for a cup of tea and a chat every now and again – we’re here to support you with anything from personal care and medication support all the way through to emotional support and companionship.

Respite care for your short-term needs

We understand how quickly care needs can change – and when they do it can be stressful to find a quick alternative that matches your usual level of care. With respite care from the Stratford team, we can swiftly put a bespoke package of care in place that is built by and around you. Whether your usual caregiver has to tend to an emergency elsewhere or you’re going on holiday but you’d like some support whilst you’re away from the familiarities of home – we’ll meet with you to establish the exact level of care you need and ensure that you have a package of care in place ready for whenever you need it.

Award-winning training for our carers in Stratford-upon-Avon

As a company that is big enough to support your every need yet still small enough to care, we’re proud to have an expert team of carers on board to provide outstanding care that supports your every need. With award-winning training that covers modules such as moving and handling, safeguarding, dementia care and first aid, each of our carers are fully equipped to support you with whatever it is you need. And with their expert training and professional experience aside, each of our carers possess one quality that is pivotal to becoming a part of our team: they all genuinely care.

As we employ each of our carers directly, you don’t need to worry about any additional paperwork or background checks – we’ll cover it all for you. And as the first and only home care provider to be endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care as well as being fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), you can rest assured that you are always receiving a safe, responsive and effective service from our team.
