Live-in care and visiting care in Woodley

Woodley is derived from Old English meaning “a clearing in the wood” and is mentioned in the M.R James short ghost story entitled ‘The Story of a Disappearance and an Appearance’, first published in 1919. Woodley is probably most famous for its Aerodrome, built in 1929 and visited by many significant aviators.

The history of the areas that we establish ourselves in is hugely important to Helping Hands, which is why we choose our locations carefully. With our visiting service offering visits from just 30 minutes and our live-in service available too, why not give us a call if you’re in the Woodley area?

Meet Santi Yokpangden, our Branch Care Manager, Woodley

I am the Branch Care Manager for Helping Hands in Reading. My responsibility is to ensure the high quality of care is provided to all our customers and to ensure the hard-working carers are supported to perform their best in providing that care. I believe an individual is best supported with a person-centred approach to care by our skilled staff, and I also value working together with families and people important to the individual. I found my motivation to continue working in care seeing the positive difference to people’s lives made by the care we deliver, and the peace of mind felt by the families.

Visiting home care in Woodley

Visiting care from Helping Hands can be as often or infrequent as you need, with visits starting from just 30 minutes a week. We began caring for our customers in 1989, so you know we have the pedigree and experience to back up our promises of expert care delivery. Whether you require high levels of complex care or just relish some occasional companionship, regardless of your condition we can support you with everything, including medication support, personal care and meal preparation.

Woodley live-in care

Going into a care home when you have complex care needs is not everyone’s preference, but did you know there’s a cost-effective alternative that will see you being able to remain in your own home for care, regardless off the severity of your condition? If you and your loved ones would like the reassurance of someone being with you at home all day and night then live-in care is the perfect answer, and thanks to your personalised support plan your preferences and routines will always be respected and your independence promoted.

Better than a care agency in Woodley

At Helping Hands we pride ourselves on delivering the best care possible in their own homes to every one of our customers, making sure that we are transparent in everything we do, including no hidden costs or referral fees, like those that you’d get with a home care agency. We are not and have never been an agency, having delivered care to all of our customers as a private home care company since 1989. Therefore, our carers are highly supported and motivated to deliver the care that you want, every single day.

Domiciliary care from Helping Hands

Domiciliary care – or care at home – can be delivered by Helping Hands on either a visiting or live-in basis, depending on your needs and complexity of your condition. The benefits of receiving care in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of your own home are many, including being able to have your beloved family members, pets and sentimental items around you at all times. We will always put your care at the top of the priority list and thanks to your personalised support plan, your preferences and routines will always be respected.

Dementia care from our expert carers

If you’ve been diagnosed with dementia or you’re caring for a loved one living with the condition, receiving care at home can be beneficial to their wellbeing, helping to reduce confusion and anxiety thanks to being in familiar surroundings. Remaining close to loved ones, pets and precious memories will ensure you live your best life possible in the home you love, and thanks to our 30 years of dementia care experience you know you’ll be in the very best hands with Helping Hands.

Respite care for short-term support

When your regular carer needs a break, you require short-term support following an operation or illness or your family takes a holiday from the demanding duties of being a full-time carer, respite care from Helping hands can be the solution. By keeping the person at home for their temporary care their emotional needs are supported as well as physical, by being around precious objects pets, and people. This ensures there is no disruption to their routine, and they receive expert care at home instead of in a care home. Even in an emergency we will aim to have a carer with you within 24 hours.

Elderly care for extra support at home

Elderly care from Helping Hands means that even if you’re finding yourself unable to do as many household tasks as you used to or look after yourself to the high standards you always did, we can help. Our compassionate carers will come to you as often or infrequently as you require to help with housework, laundry, preparing meals, personal care, medication and so much more. We’ll provide you with a bespoke package of care to suit your requirements perfectly and ensure you get to live your best life possible in the home you love.

Fully trained carers in Woodley

We select the finest people to become Helping Hands carers, as we only want people working for us who represent us exceptionally and believe in the same ethos as we always have, namely to deliver care in our customers’ homes while supporting and promoting their independence at all times. We train them thoroughly to ensure that they are always able to support our customers to the very highest standards, and because we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you can have full confidence in us to deliver the high standards of care that we promise to.
