Choosing personal care for yourself or a loved one can be quite a daunting prospect at what may already be an unsettling time. How do you know what to ask for? What will your care include? Will you have to leave your home? With home care from Home Care Wirral, all of these questions and more can be quickly answered by our friendly team who care for those across the area who need extra support with everyday living.
The great thing about home care is exactly that – it’s care at home where you feel most comfortable and secure, so you can rest assured that you won’t have to leave your home if you don’t want to. Our aim is to keep you as independent as possible with our CQC-regulated home care and enable you to live the life you want to lead.
Unlike a care agency, personal home care Wirral from Helping Hands covers any support you may need included in your cost, instead for paying for different tasks separately. We’ll support you with personal care, taking medication, getting dressed, getting in and out of bed safely and keeping the house clean and tidy – anything and everything that you may need a little extra assistance with to enable you to live happily at home.
Our support plans are flexible and can adapt around your needs, which may be particularly important if your symptoms change or you develop additional health conditions. We can increase your support to include more clinical aspects of your care, PEG feeding or continence care for example, so that you can still remain living in your own home without the need to move into residential care.
Personal care needs are different for each and every individual; some only require support once or twice a week with cleaning, shopping and getting to appointments, whereas others may need several care calls throughout the day and evening to prepare meals, help them go to the toilet and ensure they’re safe and well. We ensure that all of our customers have a unique support plan made for them and tailored to their wants and needs, so that their home care is unique to them.
For those that require support little and often, visiting care is an ideal option as it allows you to choose when your carer comes to support you and only needs to be for an hour or so at a time. Visiting care can fit in seamlessly into your life by having care calls to suit you and your timetable. Additionally, we can also offer overnight care if during the night time is when you seem to struggle more; perhaps with moving safely out of bed to the toilet or simply when you become more anxious. We’ll be there for support, reassurance and peace of mind until the next morning.
Sometimes care may only be for a short period of time to allow your caregiver to take a break. Respite care from our Wirral team will enable you to still get the care and support you require, but from one of our carers whilst your regular caregiver takes a step back and has some time for themselves. This can become a vital part of your care routine and allow you both to get a change of perspective, whilst having the reassurance that you will still get the right support for your needs.
There may be occasions where you’re unable to plan for care; perhaps if your caregiver is unavailable, you’ve been let down by another care provider or you need urgent support after a fall or illness. Our emergency care service allows us to be with you usually within 24 hours and begin providing professional care right from the off. We’ll make sure you have everything you need and ensure your family is informed of your progress and wellbeing.
The team at our Wirral branch are completely and utterly dedicated to providing first-class care to our customers across the area, ensuring they are safe, well and looked after in their own homes. And it’s our wonderful carers that allow this to happen, putting their customers at the forefront of everything they do.
We only select the very best to join us, which we ensure by our rigorous selection and assessment process. This starts with an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check and culminates in thorough in-house training, including manual handling, personal care, safeguarding and first aid. All of our carers have regular refresher sessions to ensure they are following the latest and safest care practices.
