The Benefits of Personal Care at Home

15 Mar 2021

At Hands On Care, we understand that maintaining independence and an overall sense of self is hugely important, and nowhere is that more important than in your own home. As we get older, certain day-to-day home activities can become increasingly difficult to complete in a safe and orderly manner. This is where our friendly and dedicated personal care team can help. Our approachable team are well versed in all areas of personal care, which includes social care and thorough cleaning assistance.

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 for their loved ones. With many years of experience providing health, social and personal care services in Shropshire and surrounding areas, you know you are in safe hands and you know we can help to alleviate some of the stress involved with this change

We pride ourselves on being friendly, approachable and above all else, we pride ourselves on delivering an exceptional level of care to ensure a good quality of life for all of our clients.

Our Personal Care services offer support to:

  • Adults over 18 and older people with frailties
  • People with sensory loss
  • Individuals with learning difficulties
  • Those suffering from dementia
  • Individuals recovering from an illness
  • People who are terminally ill

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 decision:

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 undivided attention as well as exceptional levels of care and attention whilst they are assisting you in 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 help cleaning your home, we can provide you with a personalised care plan tailored to you as an individual.

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 and experiencing some of the stresses usually associated with that transition.

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. Afterall, your home is meant to be a place in which you can truly feel yourself.

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 as well as enables them to visit at any time they like. In fact, we love to meet family members, as it allows us the opportunity to know you better and it helps us to deliver more tailored plans of care.

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 more 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
