What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Home care includes support with anything and everything that keeps you safe and well at home and enables you to live independently. You may just require support with the housework if you’re in your more senior years and find it difficult to keep on top of keeping the house tidy, but not necessarily someone to come in and help you wash, dress or go the toilet. Or you may require regular visits throughout the day to change continence pads, assist you to move safely in and out of your chair and prepare your daily meals. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ when it comes to home care, and we’ll work with you to create a personalised care plan that’s as individual as you are, taking into account your care needs, preferences, existing routines and personality.
Why you may need home care
The reason for needing home care will differ for each individual and may again differ if that person requires more support following an illness or injury, or if their symptoms worsen in any way. Find out the different types of home care services we offer in Walsall below.
Carers for limited hour visits
With visiting care, you can choose how and when you receive your support – from as little as 30 minutes per week. Our carers in Walsall will pop in at a pre-agreed time and carry out any care tasks or house duties that you require, such as changing the bed sheets, helping you shower, making you some lunch or even helping you water your plants. We recognise that care needs don’t just occur during the day; with overnight care, we can provide support and assistance during the evenings and night time, so you have peace of mind that there is always someone there during the early hours.
Intermittent long-term visits
For a care solution on an intermittent basis, respite care can keep you safe and well at home whilst your regular caregiver takes a well-earned break and some time for themselves. Not only are they able to rest and recharge their batteries, it also means a change of personnel for you, enabling you to get to know a new, friendly face and perhaps even do different activities for a change. We’ll make sure we meet with you both beforehand, so that we can mirror your existing routines and step in so that your care transitions seamlessly.
Carers for immediate situations
Care needs can arise often without warning or time to prepare for different eventualities, but with emergency care from our Walsall team, we can get to you in as little as 24 hours to provide expert care to you at home. There’s no need to worry about having to move into residential care or staying in hospital – we’ll be there when you need us and for as long as you need us, helping you to recover after an illness, injury or operation comfortably at home.
