Are you considering arranging for home care for either you or a family member? Naturally, it can be an unnerving process, and choosing the right carer is not a process to be rushed. Being a leading home care service provider in the UK for more than 30 years now, Helping Hands prides itself on being the top choice for home care that goes above and beyond.
We are certified and regularly monitored by the Care Quality Commission in England and the Care Inspectorate in Wales (CIW). This means that we constantly ensure our service is meeting high standards, and that our carers receive ongoing professional training. We’re also proud to say that we are the only home care agency to ever be designated a Centre of Excellence, which we feel reflects our ongoing vision to deliver care of an exceptional level.
From the moment you get in touch with the our team providing home care in Twickenham team, we’ll work closely with you to create a care plan that fits into your lifestyle, with anything from a single weekly 30 minute call to more intensive or nurse-supported care. The assistance you receive depends entirely on your needs, and that’s why we make sure we’re flexible enough to offer overnight care, full-time or live-in care, respite care on a more intermediate basis, or even emergency support within 24 hours of you contacting us.
Helping Hands understands how rewarding it can be to care for a loved one, but we also know that carers need some TLC too sometimes, and that’s where we can help with occasional respite care. Should an urgent situation require your attention elsewhere or should you simply need to take a few days off to recharge your batteries, one of our carers can step in to make sure that life continues as normal and that your loved one is cared for with no disruption to all the familiar daily routines. Respite care is also a convenient option for support during convalescence after an illness or accident, or for an extra pair of hands while recovering from surgery.
Our home care team in Luton is passionate about supporting your loved one to live their best life. Whether that means occasional visiting care throughout the week to help with errands or cooking, more continuous daily support and help with medications and mobility, or simply a friendly chat over a cup of tea and a little companionship, we’re on hand to help. Every Helping Hands carer is passionate about making a real difference in the daily lives of those they look after, and they genuinely enjoy taking the time to get to know the people they work with.
You can expect professional service that comes with a hearty dose of good company and attentiveness. Elderly care can include daily errands and tasks, grooming, groceries, walking the dog, tidying up, getting the laundry done or lending a hand for those tasks that might be a little more challenging.
Seniors experiencing dementia or memory loss need not only a gentle touch but the patience that comes with experience. Many of our carers have undertaken additional training to better support elders living with dementia in all its forms. While moving to a residential care home in Luton is an option, we find that dementia care delivered safely at home is far less disruptive, since comfortable routines and preferences are left intact. You can rest assured that your loved one is receiving the care and attention they need, when they need it.
Helping Hands never offers one-size-fits-all care. We are passionate about people, and are committed to bringing the human touch to care work. We provide the exact level of attention, support and care that we would expect for members of our own families, and nothing less. It’s this commitment that we hope sets us apart from other care agencies in Twickenham.
