Why respite care in Blackpool?

Respite care is intermediate home care support offered whenever the ordinary carer is not available. If you already have a carer in place, or are providing care to a loved one yourself, then you may occasionally need someone to substitute for you. Respite care is temporary, whether it’s planned ahead of time (as in the event of a carer going on holiday) or emergency cover (if, for example, the carer falls ill).

Caring for another person can be enormously rewarding, but carers need breaks too, so they can rest and recuperate, and engage in a little self-care themselves. Our Blackpool carers are there to give you a break while taking care of everything at home.

Blackpool respite support from Helping Hands

Choosing respite care from a trusted home care provider like Helping Hands gives you the freedom to live the life you want to live, knowing that there is always support nearby when you most need it. Sometimes a lighter touch makes all the difference; we are more than happy to send over one of our fully qualified and experienced carers to cover for you and make sure that everything ticks along as it should. Whether this means helping out with housework, medications, or simply some good companionship, our carers are ready to do what they can to make your life a little easier.

When to choose Blackpool respite care

If you need a little extra help and assistance occasionally, but don’t necessarily wish to commit to receiving more regular home care, then respite care might be the ideal solution. Respite care is designed to fill in for you when life doesn’t exactly go according to plan. For example, when either you or the normal carer falls ill and cannot be there as usual, Helping Hands can send a professional and friendly carer to your home to make sure the day’s activities carry on as normal. You can rest assured that your loved one is still receiving the attention and support they need in your absence.

We also offer respite support for when you need to go on holiday now and then, or if you have to tend to an urgent family or work emergency elsewhere and need a quick replacement. We’re ready to help and can have someone with you within 24 hours of you reaching out. The idea is that your loved one is in safe hands and you have one less thing to worry about, whether you’re away for an afternoon or for a week.

Respite care services tailored to you

At Helping Hands, our specialty is providing excellent care that is tailored to our customer’s unique needs. We always strive to work closely with you so that you’re receiving exactly the support you need, when you need it. You can always be sure that you’re receiving compassionate, expert care that fits around your particular lifestyle and preferences, no matter how long you need us for.

Helping Hands is proud to offer emergency care that can put your mind at ease during stressful times, and we also offer overnight support when necessary. Many of our respite care customers opt for an extra helping hand after a hospital procedure or while they recover from an illness or accident. We can be at hand to make sure you have what you need while you get back on your feet, and can supplement the care you’re already receiving.

Qualified respite carers in Blackpool

Helping Hands is guided by a philosophy of providing home care of the very best standard to each and every one of our customers, no matter their unique situation. We’re regulated by the Care Quality Commission, so you know the support you receive will be safe, effective and appropriate to your needs. We’ve been in the home care industry for more than 30 years and we’re proud to say that among our many accreditations, we’re also the only home care group in the UK to ever be awarded the title of Centre of Excellence.

Our real strength, however, is our Blackpool home carers. Unlike many other home care agencies in Blackpool, Helping Hands doesn’t work with agency staff but hires carers directly, after extensive recruitment and selection, as well as ongoing training. We only work with those hand-picked carers we trust to deliver the outstanding care that we’ve come to be known for.
