15 Mar 2021

At Hands On Care we understand that maintaining independence is hugely important. As we get older however, certain day-to-day activities can become increasingly difficult to complete safely. This is where our friendly and dedicated team can help.

Based in the heart of Shropshire, we offer a wide range of services to make your life easier and more enjoyable, all whilst enabling you to enjoy the comfort and familiarity of your own home. As a family run business, we understand that choosing a personal care provider can be a difficult and often upsetting decision to make, both for the individual and their loved ones. With many years experience providing health and social care services for people of all ages, we pride ourselves on being friendly, approachable and above all, on delivering an exceptional level of care to ensure a good quality of life for all our clients.

Our Personal Care services offer support to:

  • Adults over 18 and older people with frailties

The Benefits of Personal Care At Home

If you are considering personal care but are still undecided, we’ve put together some of the key benefits which can help you to make the right choice:

  • Personalised, One on One Care 

If you choose to hire a home care worker, you will be matched with a team who will give you their complete attention and care whilst they are within your home. This can often be critical when dealing with age-related illnesses and recovery. Whether you just need some support during meal times,  a “good morning” to start your day or you need help with cleaning your home, we can provide you with personalised care.

  • Helping You To Keep Your Independence

By choosing in-home care, you can retain your independence, safely and comfortably within your own home rather than moving to a care home. There really is no place like home and we pride ourselves on helping people of all ages to continue their lives feeling confident, comfortable, safe and above all, happy in their own space.

  • Keeps You Close to Your Family

Personal care within the home is a hugely popular choice for many as it allows loved ones and friends to remain close and able to visit at any time. In fact, we love to meet family members, as it helps us to get to know you better.

  • Reduces the Risk of Infection

By receiving care at home, you will be isolated from facilities that house other recovering patients where you run a higher risk of infection.

  • You Receive A Wide Range of Services

At Hands On Care we offer so much than just personal care services. We also help around the home, run errands, prepare meals and provide much-needed companionship. Whether you need help with the upkeep of your home, you’re looking for a friendly chat over a cup of tea, or you require specialised care, we are on hand to help.
