Care for older people

Getting older shouldn't mean losing your independence. Help at Home provides quality care support for its older service users, enabling them to continue living fulfilling lives in the homes that they know and love.

The support we provide ranges from simple practical support with everyday living tasks, such as housework, shopping, laundry, correspondence and other paperwork, through to help with personal care (washing, dressing, medication etc.), making or eating meals, and even higher-level clinical or nursing support. In many cases, our staff also support older people to maintain their family and social lives, perhaps escorting them outside the home.

In additional to general support for older people, we also specialise in supporting people with particular age-related health conditions, such as dementia and Parkinson’s disease.

Help at Home's services for older people are highly personalised. Each care plan is individually designed in partnership with the service user to take account of their particular needs, goals and aspirations and the success of each service is measured in terms of whether those personal outcomes are achieved. This person-centred approach gives our older service users more choice and control over when and how their support is provided.

We take care to match our workers with our service users to ensure a great fit for both skill and personality; it is our aim to provide staff who are companions as well as care professionals.
