What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
Home care from Helping Hands Weston-super-Mare covers all aspects of daily living that you may need help with. For some who only require support little and often, they may only need help with keeping on top of the housework, taking out the bins and tending to their garden. Whereas others may need more regular, intensive support with things such as personal care, help with mobilising safely and assistance with getting out and about. Our team will listen to all of your requirements and preferences and ensure a support plan is created that is completely tailored to your needs, so that you have person-centred care that has been created around you, for you.
In addition to supporting you physically, our compassionate carers are there to provide emotional and spiritual support, which is particularly important if you live by yourself or your family lives a fair distance away from you. That way, you can enjoy the company of a trusted carer who has your best interests at heart and will be there to have a natter and cup of tea with you.
Why you may need home care
We recognise how different everyone’s situation is, and there are no set parameters required in order to receive home care. We help those young and old, short term and long term, in order to enable them to live comfortably at home where they feel most secure and content.
Carers for limited hour visits
Many people may not necessarily require much support during the day, especially if they have a loved one that pops in to check on them and help them with meal preparation and their shopping. It’s during the nights that they may struggle more; perhaps due to becoming more anxious during the darker hours or if they have a medical condition that means they need support with medication or turning safely in bed to prevent bed sores. The Weston team can provide overnight care for those who require someone to be on hand during the early hours, ensuring you’re cared for and have a restful night’s sleep.
Intermittent long-term visits
More and more people are providing care for their own relatives – whether it’s a few times a week or several times a day. It’s really important that you take a break from your caregiving duties so that you get some time to yourself and so that your loved one can have a bit of space from you too. Respite care can enable you both to have this time apart without worrying that the same level of support won’t be provided; we’ll meet with you both beforehand to ensure we get everything in place and transition your care to our local team in a seamless way, ensuring you have the very best care for your loved one whilst you’re taking a well-earned break.
Carers for immediate situations
We often find that our customers have little or no time to prepare for care needs, with situations such as being discharged from hospital, an existing carer becoming unavailable or your health condition suddenly taking a turn for the worst cropping up at the last minute. Our professional team can swiftly step in and provide emergency care to you, usually within 24 hours of your first contact with us, enabling you or a loved one to get the urgent care and reassurance you may need at what may be quite a stressful and worrying time.
