Why choose home care at Helping Hands Wakefield?
Wakefield has a strong local history, having been involved in the wars of the Roses and the Civil War. Its historic cathedral is well worth a visit too, as are some very attractive views on the edge of the Pennines. If you’re looking for a home care company with a long heritage, you’ll find Helping Hands in Wakefield, located in Wood Street. Helping Hands was established in 1989 with one aim in mind which has never altered; to provide high-quality care for people in their own homes, whilst promoting their independence and supporting them to live the life they want.Request a callback Email us
What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
With visits starting from only 30 minutes, and going right up to around-the-clock live-in care, there will be a care package that we can arrange which will suit you perfectly. You will have a personalised support plan that will detail everything you like doing and exactly how you like it done, respecting your routines and preferences, so whether you need support with mobility, medication, meal preparation, or anything else, we can support you to live your life as independently as possible staying in the place you love, your own home.
Why you may need home care?
You may have decided to investigate care at home because of age-related frailties and you’ve found yourself struggling with everyday tasks, or perhaps you’ve recently had a fall and you’d like some care temporarily. The team in Wakefield can help support you with every aspect of your care needs, from 30 minutes a week up to full-time live-in care.
Carers for limited hour visits in Wakefield
Your individualised support plan will detail every aspect of your care, whether you’re having one 30-minute visit a week for coffee, chat and companionship, or a longer call to accompany you to a scheduled appointment. Maybe you have higher level care needs that necessitate several calls a day at the most strategic times, such as mealtimes or getting out of bed? Regardless of the tasks in hand, your compassionate carers will be able to support you fully so that you know you will be able to remain as independent as possible in your own home. Perhaps you have support during the day but need overnight care? Our carers can also spend the hours of darkness with you so that your care continues without disruption and your daytime carers get to rest.
Respite Care visits across Wakefield
Respite care can be a lifesaver if your regular carer has to take some well-earned time away or your family need a break. It’s vital that those who are caring for others take regular time for themselves to recharge and renew their energy, but this can lead to anxiety on the part of the customer who may presume they’ll have to leave their home and enter temporary residential care. This isn’t the case though, as the Wakefield team will provide a temporary respite carer for short or longer-term cover, within the customer’s own home.
Wakefield Carers for immediate situations
When an emergency happens, it can be a time of great anxiety for everyone involved, not least if you then have to source immediate care for your loved one. If they are being unexpectedly discharged from hospital or need support after a fall for instance, who do you turn to? It can be overwhelming to know which way to turn. This doesn’t have to be the case though, as the Wakefield team will be able to source you a carer to look after your loved one within 24 hours, so you get to focus on the important thing, spending quality time together.
