When to choose respite care
When you or a loved one require additional care at short notice, you may wish to consider respite care. It might be that you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than anticipated, or your regular carer is taking a well-earned break and you need someone to pick up their normal responsibilities. We provide respite care in the form of visiting care, in which your caregivers visit you at set intervals during the day to assist you with duties, or live-in care, in which someone stays in your house 24 hours a day to provide extra reassurance and companionship.

When you partner with Helping Hands for respite care, you’ll receive a care plan that perfectly aligns to your particular needs and wishes. Whether we’re covering your regular carer while they take a well-earned break or are simply providing you with additional support to help you through a difficult period, our care experts will ensure they fully understand your specific circumstances and the nature of your condition and will make sure you receive the type and standard of care that you’d expect from our industry-leading care experts.
