Respite care at home is a great alternative when your regular carer needs to take a break or if you need some extra support to get back on your feet after illness or surgery. Respite care traditionally suggests going into residential care, but with Helping Hands our compassionate carers come to you and provide everything you need to recover and receive a continuity of care until your regular carer returns. This means you get to stay in the place you love and still receive the excellent standards of care you need and because we have branches across England and Wales you know we’ll be on your doorstep, just like our dedicated Bracknell care team.
Respite care can be necessary for a number of reasons, not just giving your carer a well-earned break or your family a holiday, but also when the unforeseen happens, such as an unexpected hospital discharge or your carer becoming ill. Respite care from Helping Hands will see you receive home-care on a short-term, temporary basis until your regular carer returns or you are fully recovered. If you decide you would like your care to continue long-term after your respite finishes we can help there too.
Giving regular caregivers a break from time to time is vital, as without this they won’t be able to support you fully due to physical and emotional exhaustion. It is also beneficial for you to have a break from each other so that when they return to you relaxed and refreshed you’re all the happier for seeing them. Our respite services include care on both a visiting-care and live-in-care basis so we can tailor your support to your exact requirements.
Whether you’d prefer respite care on a visiting basis, where your carer comes to you at pre-arranged times of the day and for durations that suit you, or live-in care where a carer resides in your home with you, you’re guaranteed the highest standards of care at all times with Helping Hands, as we’ve been providing care for our customers in their own homes since 1989. Our carers will always promote your independence and ensure you live your best life at home, by undertaking your personal care, meal preparation, medication and mobility support, housework, laundry and helping you to access the community, amongst other things. Thanks to our personalised packages of care, we will make sure you remain as comfortable and safe as possible at home.
Our carers are the very heart of our business because without them we couldn’t care for our customers, it’s as simple as that. We know what a difference our carers make to our customers’ lives, every single day and because of that we ensure we look after them as well as they care for you. We select only the best people to become Helping Hands carers, people who share our ethos for individualised, high quality care and will understand our mission: “Our care makes it possible for you to live safely at home”. We train our carers well when they join us to ensure they are prepared for any eventuality and offer development opportunities whenever we can. Because we’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, we really are the UK’s foremost homecare provider, so you and your loved ones can have total confidence in us to deliver excellent care at all times.
