Why respite care is a good option for short-term support
Receiving respite care at home means you can stay in the place you love, surrounded by things that mean the world to you. This can have a beneficial effect on your physical and mental health as you recover with beloved people, pets and pictures nearby.
We can arrange care quickly, covering:
- Hospital discharge: to help you get back on your feet
- Emergency care: in the case of a short notice discharge or perhaps your regular carer needs time off in a hurry
- Short breaks: your family might like you to go on holiday with them, or somewhere on your own with extra support
- One-off occasions: perhaps a family celebration, such as a wedding
Respite care services tailored to you
We’ll provide a personalised package of care that follows a support plan written with all your routines and preferences in mind. We offer visiting care, where your carer comes to you at pre-arranged times to carry out vital support, or live-in care, where your carer resides in your home with you to provide round the clock care and companionship. Regardless of which you decide to receive, you will always get the same high level of dedicated support that you would expect from our compassionate and expert carers.
Post-discharge support in Basildon
If you or a loved one is about to be discharged from hospital and you’re anxious about coping, you need to be confident that there will be help available to you for as long as you need it. Continuity of care is very important and if you only require support to get back on your feet and know it won’t be for long, respite care at home can be a very beneficial option.
Emergency care in Basildon
Sometimes care is needed in an emergency, perhaps because your regular carer has had to dash home, or you’re being discharged from hospital earlier than expected. Family will often try to step in temporarily, but they’ll have their own lives to organise. Choosing respite care from Helping Hands means that you’ll get professional continuity of care and your loved ones can relax knowing you’re being fully taken care of.
