Helpd Ltd

Helpd is dedicated to connecting clients that are seeking care with the very best carers and personal assistants that wish to provide it. Simply go to our website to view detailed profiles of fantastic skilled and experienced carers and personal assistants that have been vetted, interviewed and reference checked and have recently had a clear DBS. You may liaise directly with our "Helpers" via private message if you wish to arrange care or call our friendly and experienced team who will only be too happy to provide a free assessment and prepare a list of Helpers for you that will match your needs. When booking care you can pay via the website for extra security and confidence. Because we are online we take a lower rate of commission than a standard agency meaning that carers are paid more and clients pay less.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

We provide carers and personal assistants that give care and support to those suffering from dementia and their friends and family.  We also provide information via the blog on our website discussing dementia.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

Our main function is to match the requirements and needs of clients to appropriately skilled, experienced and motivated carers.   The primary challenge is therefore to be able to accurately understand a client's needs, behaviours and personality so that we can create an accurate profile for the client which can in turn be used to match them to a carer who has the right skills, experience, training, personality, location, availability, price and abilities to provide a truly outstanding level of care for the clients.  More of often than not we talk to one or more relatives of the person requiring care to find out as much information as possible and build a picture which will be faithful and accurate so that all parties will be as informed as possible before we make any recommendations to clients of any of our carers.   We do not believe in rushing through this process as it is absolutely critical to creating the foundation for a placement which works well for both client and for the carer.
