At Helping Hands we’ve supported over 44,000 people to be as independent as possible in their own homes over the last 30 years, and we’re proud that our carers have made such a difference to our customers’ lives. When you’re in need of temporary respite care though, we should still be your first choice, as we can have care in place within 24 hours in an emergency and we’ll still deliver our highest standards of care for you or your loved one. Regardless of the reason for respite, whether your regular carer needs a break, you’ve been discharged from hospital or recovering from an illness, we can have a personalised package of care designed for you, along with a support plan that will detail all your preferences and routines that you want respected. To discover more about how we could be supporting you or your loved ones, talk to our friendly Beeston home care team today.
You might usually be supported by family members or a professional caregiver, however when the time comes to take a break you need to be confident that your loved one’s care will continue as if you were still there. Your carer can come to you either on a visiting basis, with visits from 30 minutes at pre-arranged times of the day, or they can live-in your home with you for the duration of your care. This has the added advantage that you don’t just get care at certain times of the day, your carer is with you around the clock as a constant companion.
We can arrange cover at short notice, regardless of the circumstances. These include:
Respite care from Helping Hands will be personalised exactly to your requirements and we can offer short-term support of a few days, or longer-term if you need a little more time to get back on your feet again. Respite care is valuable for so many reasons that can help you live your life to the fullest. Your carer will be able to undertake all necessary tasks within your home, including medication administration, mobility support, housework & laundry, meal preparation and personal care.
You and your loved ones can be reassured that there will be a continuity of care available to you when you’re back at home after a hospital discharge. You may feel anxious about returning home, especially if you’ve been in hospital for a long time, however if you feel you’d benefit from some professional support after your discharge our compassionate carers can be there from when you arrive home.
If you’re being discharged from hospital at short notice or your regular carer has to go home in a hurry, your loved ones may be panicking about how best to support you, especially if they live some distance away. We can have care in place for you within 24 hours though, so talk to the Beeston team about emergency care today.
We have been delivering care in our customers’ homes since 1989, so we truly deserve our reputation as the UK’s home care experts. We were founded as a family-run company and we still follow the same ethos today; that’s why we carefully select our carers to ensure we only employ people who share this vision as our carers really are the heart of our business. We fully train and continually develop our carers too, to ensure they get the opportunity to increase their skills and apply what they’ve learnt into caring for their customers.
We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which also demonstrates our commitment for exceeding industry guidelines on care delivery and that’s why we’ve been consistently rated ‘Good’.
