My mum recently had a spell in hospital. I won’t go into all the detail but the crux of it was she had a degenerative condition which affected the nerves in her neck.
Good protection is about more than money. Make your advice stand out by giving your clients more than they might expect.
Helping Hand is a support service that’s included in all our protection plans available through intermediaries.
It’s available to your clients from the day their plan starts, they don’t need to pay anything extra to use it and their partner and children can use it too.
If your clients experience serious illness, injury or bereavement during the term of their plan, Helping Hand gives them a dedicated nurse who'll provide tailored and personal support for as long as they need it.
So, what exactly is Helping Hand?
It's a service that gives your clients access to comprehensive support at no extra cost.
It provides customers experiencing a wide range of serious illnesses, injury or bereavement with the support they need to get through the tough times.
Helping Hand is available to your clients and their partner and children from the day their plan starts.
A dedicated nurse, provided by our independent partner, RedArc, is at the heart of Helping Hand. And will be your client’s main contact if they need to use the service.
They’ll listen and get to know them, assess their needs and concerns, and create a personal support plan to make sure they get the help that’s right for them.
Every case is different so the support will always be tailored to your client. And they’ll get ongoing help from their dedicated nurse for as long as they need it.
So what does this mean for you?
By recommending a plan with Helping Hand, you’re demonstrating the value of your advice, as your clients can use it even if they never make a claim.
And offering them something that they might not expect could help you build long-term trusting relationships. Priceless.
When one of our customers – or a member of their family – tells us they need help. We’ll put them in touch with the dedicated nurse service available through Helping Hand.
They’ll decide which member of their team is going to look after that person.
The dedicated nurse will give them a call to get to know them. They’ll create a personal support plan to make sure each person gets help that’s tailored to their needs. Sometimes the most appropriate help is the ongoing emotional support they get from regular contact with their dedicated nurse.
Or it could mean their nurse recommends wider practical support, like a second medical opinion or help at home; they can also research and arrange further services if that’s what’ll benefit them.
And they’ll always speak to the same nurse, often for months or even years.
