Barnes respite support from Helping Hands
When you have a permanent carer, it’s essential that they get time to rest and recharge so that they’re always at their best to care for you. Respite care at home can be the perfect solution to cover their break and prevent you from having to relocate to a care home, but you’ll want to know that you’re receiving temporary care from a company with plenty of experience. At Helping Hands we’ve been supporting people in their own homes since 1989 and our amazing carers regularly go above and beyond to ensure that you live your best life at home, including our dedicated Barnes care team.
What is respite care?
Respite care can be necessary when you have been in hospital and need some extra support to get you back on your feet, if your regular carer needs a break covered or when your family want to go on holiday. It is temporary, short-term care, usually for a week or two, but can be for longer if your circumstances warrant it.
When to choose respite care
Receiving your respite care at home means you get to remain in the place you love, knowing that your usual routine will be followed to the letter. If you’ve been in hospital or unwell, you may need some extra help at home just until you’re fully recovered and visiting or live-in respite care from Helping Hands will ensure that you are cared for to the very highest standards. Even in an emergency, we will endeavour to have a carer with you at home within 24 hours, meaning that you and your loved ones can be reassured that you’re receiving the care you need.
Respite care services tailored to you
Whether you choose visiting care, which can see our carers with you from 30 minutes per week up to as many hours as you need them, or live-in-care where a carer will reside in your home with you. Your bespoke package of care will ensure that your routine is always respected and delivered exactly as you want, and your personalised support plan will detail your care perfectly. Carers can support you with every aspect of your daily routine, including personal care, medication, mobility, meal preparation, housework, laundry and accessing the community.
Qualified respite carers in Barnes
Our carers are amazing, and we feel that way because we know how hard they work to support our customers at home on a daily basis. They are the centre of our business and because we want them to look after you well, we do the same for them. They receive training when they start with us and regular opportunities to update their skills and also seek promotion, but we also appreciate that they have to be the right person for the job. To ensure this, we make sure they have natural compassion and empathy before we take them on, and thoroughly check their background and screen them through the DBS so we know they’re suitable to enter your home. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you and your loved ones can be confident that we’ll always deliver the highest standards of care.
