Sometimes care can be needed for just a short period of time and that’s where respite care comes in. Respite care from Helping Hands can be for a short period of cover, such as a few days, or longer where necessary. Perhaps you are a family member caring for a loved one and you need to take some time for yourself or the regular carer may need to take their holiday? Why go through the upheaval of moving to a residential home temporarily when you could receive the care you need in your own home? Respite care is completely tailored to your or your loved one’s needs and can involve one or several visits a day, or even around the clock live-in care. Have a chat with our helpful Barnet team today to discover how we could be supporting you or your loved one today.
Perhaps you’re about to be discharged from hospital and need some short-term support to get back on your feet? You will most likely feel better more quickly if you’re able to go home and recuperate there, so having short-term care from our Home Care Barnet team is a great solution in the short-term. You’ll be supported by expert carers and support staff who really know care and who will ensure you get the highest standards of care delivered to you in your own home. Our carers will be able to support you with every aspect of your needs, including medication administration, mobility support, meal preparation, personal care, housework and much more.
If you are looking for continuity of care once you’re discharged from hospital or while your regular carer is away, trust Helping Hands to ensure this happens. Thanks to your personalised support plan that we’ll compile with you and your decision makers your routines will be respected and always followed, meaning you receive care the way you would like and your loved ones get the reassurance that they can take a break without your care being affected.
Leaving hospital can be an anxious time if you’re worried about how you’ll cope back at home, but that’s where our expert carers come in. Respite care means you can have someone with you for as short amount of time as you need, just to make sure your recovery goes smoothly, and your needs are taken care of.
When you need emergency care you need to know that a carer can be in your home the same day, whether that’s due to an unexpected hospital discharge or your regular carer having to leave quickly. Our Barnet team will work with you to get your care in place quickly so that you and your loved ones can be reassured that you’ll be taken care of the minute you arrive. This can be especially reassuring if family members live some distance away and aren’t able to leave immediately.
