Caring for people in their own home can take any shape or form of your choosing.
You decide exactly what type of extra assistance would make your life that bit easier.
Assistance in your own home from our vetted carers can include light housework such as laundry, hoovering, and tidying up around the house. We would advise that keeping your bedroom, bathroom and kitchen tidy are important areas of the house for your wellbeing. Carers can also do grocery shopping and meal prep.
If you enjoy physical activities, your carer can assist you with exercise (as prescribed by an expert) or going for walks.
Consider a carer to accompany you on errands, appointments or social activities. Carers* can even drive you wherever you need to go (*dependent on carer driving licence, insurance and vehicle ownership).
Part of our service includes carefully matching a suitable carer to your needs, lifestyle and personality.
Carers are also trained in communications skills. Finally, carers are very mindful that they are working in your home.
Carer’s priorities are to ensure clients are safe and comfortable at home. Typically carer responsibilities include Personal Care, Food and Fluid Intake Checks, and Medication Prompts if on medication. With “a Helping Hand”, you choose exactly what assistance you would like.
If your needs change, you can change your Helping Hand care arrangement. There is no commitment and no lock-in contract.
