At Helmar, we strongly believe in the power of community and the impact it can have on an individual's wellbeing. That's why we started our journey by providing services to bring people together, and we have continued to build on this ethos as we expanded into the homecare sector. We understand that care is not just about meeting a person's physical needs, but also about providing emotional support and fostering a sense of belonging.
Our drop-in centre provides a safe and welcoming space for individuals to socialise, participate in activities, and access information and support. We believe that by creating a space for people to come together, we can help combat loneliness and isolation and improve mental wellbeing.
In addition to our drop-in centre, we have also developed a local support system for carers. We recognise the vital role that carers play in our community, and we aim to provide them with the support and resources they need to continue their vital work. Our support system includes access to training and education, peer support groups, and respite care services.
Partnering with local organisations is another key part of our community-focused approach. We have worked with various groups, including charities, government organisations, and community centres, to create initiatives that benefit our local community. For example, we have organised community events, such as meeting groups and fundraising event days, to raise money for local/international causes and bring people together.
Our focus on community has been at the heart of Helmar's journey, and it continues to guide us as we provide homecare services to our clients. We recognise the importance of creating a supportive and inclusive community, and we are committed to making a positive impact in the lives of those we serve.
