What is respite care?
Respite care is typically offered on a short-term basis to people with temporary care needs, and can be used either as emergency care cover or to allow your regular carer to enjoy a break from their normal responsibilities. It might be that you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than anticipated, or you’ve suffered an accident or illness that requires a prolonged recovery period. Whatever your reason for unexpectedly finding yourself without care support, respite care from Helping Hands allows you to receive all the care you need without having to stress about whether the housework will get done or how you’ll look after yourself.
Boston respite support from Helping Hands
At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing expert, compassionate home care to customers across England and Wales since 1989. In that time, we’ve enabled thousands of people to live more independently and confidently in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of their own homes – where they feel most at ease. If you find yourself unexpectedly without the support you need in Boston and the surrounding area, our friendly Boston carers can come to your home and provide dedicated, empathetic care that will allow you to receive all the assistance you’d normally expect to receive.
When to choose respite care
Respite care can be used in any instance when you need extra care. Perhaps you normally have a family member who provides you with regular care but they need to take a well-earned holiday, or your normal carer has been taken ill and is unable to arrange any cover. With respite care from Helping Hands Boston, our expert carers will provide you with a personalised support plan that addresses all of your needs. We offer respite care in the form of visiting care, in which your carers come to your home at predetermined intervals throughout the day to assist you with your responsibilities, or live-in care, in which someone stays in your home 24 hours a day to provide extra reassurance and company.
Respite care services tailored to you
When you choose Helping Hands as your respite care provider, you’ll receive a care plan that is fully tailored to your specific needs and wishes. We know that no two customers have the exact same care needs, so our wonderful carers will always make sure they understand your individual circumstances and condition so that they can offer you a level of care that fits your requirements. We want your respite care to be as personal to you as possible, so we’ll make sure you have control over the more significant aspects of your care plan – such as the level and type of care you receive – as well as the smaller details of your care plan, like your bedtimes and meal preferences.
