Why choose our Bournemouth respite care team?

Many people in the UK provide care in some capacity. This may vary from something as little as running errands for an elderly relative once a week to providing full-time home support for a loved one. Caring for someone can be rewarding, but it can also be very challenging. All carers deserve to take a break from their care-giving duties every now and then to recharge and focus on their own health and wellbeing. Our respite care services will allow you to enjoy some much-needed downtime, while knowing that your loved one is being properly taken care of in your absence.

Bournemouth respite support from Helping Hands

At Helping Hands, we have been providing people all across the UK with quality care for over 30 years. As a family-owned company, our commitment to providing quality care at home is a top priority. This is why every carer undergoes intensive training and assessments by our in-house instructors. All personal care services are provided by our Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered office Helping Hands Dorset, which means you can go away on holiday, run errands, or spend quality time with other family members and friends, all while knowing that your loved one will continue receiving the best level of support. Taking advantage of respite services is a great way for carers to take some time to focus on their own needs. You can have complete confidence in the quality of care that your loved one will receive from our home care Bournemouth team, while you take a well-deserved break from caregiving.

Why respite care is a good option for dementia

Caring for someone can be exhausting and it is natural to need a break from your caregiving duties to relax and recharge. Many carers feel guilty about leaving their loved one, especially if they have a complex health condition like dementia. However, it is vital that you take some time for yourself or you risk being unable to provide quality care long-term. Research shows that time apart from your caregiving duties can make you happier, healthier and better able to deal with the demands of caring.

The best part about our home care services is that your loved one will continue to receive care in the place they know and love – their home. A change of routine and scenery can be extremely stressful for someone with dementia. This is why we specialise in home care packages and focus on helping our customers retain their independence and freedom. Our respite carers will ensure consistency of care by following the routines and patterns that your loved one is used to. Respite care also provides the opportunity for caregivers and their loved ones to experience the excellent care options that are available to them.  This means you never have to worry about your loved one being without the support they need.

Respite care services tailored to you

The home care support plan is completely tailored to your loved one, with anywhere from a short 30-minute visit once a week, to several visits a day, or even 24-hour live-in care available. This means that you can choose the level of care your loved one requires and create a customisable home care plan that is matched to their specific needs and preferences. Our respite carers can assist your loved one with an extensive variety of daily tasks including housekeeping, nursing care and personal care. Having a regular carer can also provide a valuable source of companionship and emotional support in your absence. We will use our knowledge and expertise to provide care that is unique and tailored to your loved one.
