Respite care can be a positive interim measure when your regular carer is not available, you’re recovering from an illness or you’re being discharged from a hospital stay. This type of care usually conjures up the suggestion of having to relocate to a care home temporarily, however with Helping Hands, that can be avoided. It makes sense that you would want to stay in your own home, the place that makes you happiest, and this also has the benefit of a smooth continuity of care. Your personalised support plan will ensure that your preferences and routines are respected at all times and your carer knows exactly how you like things done. Consequently, you and your loved ones can be reassured that you will be supported fully whilst all living your lives to the fullest and concentrating on spending quality time together.

Receiving respite care at home can be hugely beneficial to your physical and emotional wellbeing. This is because being in familiar surroundings can reduce anxiety and help you to feel more relaxed. Additionally, if your carer gets a chance to take some time off it means that they will come back refreshed and energised which you will both benefit from. Consequently, having respite care in your own home from Helping Hands will ensure your continued recovery and peace of mind for your loved ones. Your carer can come to you on a visiting basis, which means they will call at regular, pre-arranged times to carry out your care, or alternatively, they can live-in your home with you, providing the same high standards of care, plus around the clock companionship.
Your carer will be able to support you with every task to make your day-to-day life more comfortable, including medication administration, meal preparation, mobility support, personal care, and housework. Equally, if you enjoy going outside, your carer will be able to support you out of the house too. Your personalised support plan will ensure that your care package is perfectly suited to your routines and preferences too.
When you’re coming out of hospital, you and your loved ones need to know that your care will continue once you return home. Having after hospital care from Helping Hands ensures that you’ll be professionally looked after until you’re back on your feet, meaning peace of mind for both you and your loved ones.
When you need care in an emergency, a replacement carer from Helping Hands can be in your home within 24 hours. Perhaps you’re being discharged from hospital at short notice or your regular carer has to rush home, but whatever the reason is, talk to our team in Bath for immediate support.
