Often referred to as ‘care at home’, assisted living is the ideal care option when the need arises for additional day-to-day support. In days gone by, anyone requiring outside care might have chosen to move to a residential nursing home or hospice. However, an increasing number of people are now opting to remain at home for specialist one-to-one support from a private care provider like Helping Hands. Assisted living at home allows you to retain full control over your care plan and live life on your own terms. One of our brilliant home care in Wantage team will visit you in your home and help out in whatever ways you require – whether that’s doing the housework, providing personal care, assisting with medication, looking after pets, or just about anything else.
We’re extremely proud of our wonderful carers, who truly are the very best at what they do and are the primary reason we’re the most widely-trusted home care provider in England and Wales. All of our carers are selectively handpicked for their compassionate personalities and their commitment to excellence in their roles, and undergo numerous background checks before starting with us. They also receive our industry-leading training, which equips them to provide specialist support to people with a wide variety of needs and preferences.
Assisted living at home is a great option for anyone who wishes to continue enjoying the many benefits of remaining in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of the family home but may need a bit of additional support in order to do so. It might be that you’ve been diagnosed with a complex or progressive condition that makes it harder to keep up with daily life by yourself, or maybe you’re just not quite as light on your feet as you once were and need a hand with some of the more difficult or time-consuming jobs around the house. Whatever your reason for requiring another pair of hands around the home, our Wantage team would love to hear how we can help you maintain your preferred way of life and continue doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.
The cost of assisted living from Helping Hands will vary depending on your level of need. Our visiting care packages start from £25.27 per hour, whilst live-in care prices start at £1,599 per week for one person and £1,839 per week for a couple. Each care visit also incurs a £3.50 fee to cover your carer’s costs.
We know how important it is to you that your care is straightforward to arrange, sustainably affordable, and doesn’t come with any unwanted extras or additional costs. That’s why we’re completely transparent about the upfront costs involved in our industry-leading home care, and will never ever try to push you to sign up for any extra hours or services that you don’t want or need. Your local care manager in Wantage will always be on hand to help you make any changes you wish to make to your support at a moment’s notice.
