How to get help around the house and make an injury claim after an injury
If you have been badly injured then it may take you some time to get back to normal and during this time you might need help to get around and do your everyday chores and tasks.
With an injury it can be fairly difficult to manage your day to day tasks, but they will still need to be done so that your household can run as normal. Getting help around the house can be crucial to helping you recover more fully and quickly, so here are some ways to get help around the house for a while.
- Ask friends and family. Friends and family should always be there to provide you with the support you need when you have suffered a serious accident or illness, and will probably be happy to help you out for a while even if you can’t afford to offer them anything in return, so these people should be your first port of call.
- See what the hospital can offer. If you are seriously injured, the hospital might be happy to let you stay until you are able to move around more easily, or might be able to provide you with a nurse to come and help around the house periodically.
- Advertise for help. If you have the finances to do so, find out about hiring someone to give you some help and support for the weeks and months following your injury. If you only get them in a couple of times a week then it shouldn’t even cost you too much.
- Get your children to help. If you have older children that are capable of helping around the house, ask them to start helping out whilst you are still injured. You could offer to pay them pocket money for their help, but really they should be happy to chip in either way.
