As of April 2014 people receiving NHS continuing healthcare will have the right to ask for the option of a Personal Health Budget. From October 2014, they will be entitled to receive one. Personal Health Budgets can be given in the form of Direct Payments.

Personal health budgets are an allocation of money provided by the NHS to support identified healthcare needs. These allocations can be given directly to the person who is looking to receive care and can be used to set up a care package with a provider of their choice.

The new Personal health budgets will provide the person receiving care with greater autonomy, flexibility and involvement in their plan of care.

People who qualify for a personal health budget can either use the money directly to organise care or work with NHS teams to identify suitable options.

Approaching Helpful Home Care for a package of care, you can expect us to work cooperatively with you and your NHS teams to establish budgets and an outcome based package of care.

Helpful Home Care welcomes Personal Health budgets, which will see our service users exercising more control and choice over the care they receive.

At Helpful Home Care, we are passionate about the provision of person centred care that exactly meets individual needs. When organising care through us our Senior Registered Occupational Therapist will conduct a person centred assessment directly with our service users to establish what it is they require from our services – now and in the future. We directly employ and manage experienced carers, who we match to service users based on expertise and personality. Our carers, who are closely managed and monitored, are an essential part of our commitment to continuity of high quality care.
