If you’re being discharged from hospital or your regular carer needs a break, respite care at home can be an appropriate solution. Many people don’t like the idea of relocating to a care home, even temporarily, so being cared for in your own home is a practical alternative. At Helping Hands we’ve been supporting people to remain as independent as possible in their own homes for over 30 years, so we really are the home care specialists.
To learn more on how we could be supporting you or your loved ones, please talk to our friendly care team in Braintree today.
Our carers will support you in your home with every aspect of your care, including mobility support, personal care, medication administration, meal preparation, housework and much more. Your personalised support plan means that your routines and preferences will always be respected and staying at home can help you recover both mentally and physically thanks to being in familiar surroundings. Our dedicated carers can come to you on a visiting basis or can live-in your home with you, so there are plenty of options for us to build into your personalised care package. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes at a time, whereas with live-in care you also get the benefit of around the clock companionship.
You’ll have a personalised support plan for your carer to work from, ensuring that your routines are always respected, and your care delivered to your exact specifications. Your carer will support you with everything you need, including personal care and housework, so if you are finding it difficult to change the beds or move the vacuum around your carer will help you with all of that and more.
Being discharged from hospital can be a happy time, as you get to return to your beloved home surrounded by precious pets and possessions. However, it can also cause anxiety due to worrying about being able to manage on your own. Our carers can support you from the moment you return home though, so you’ll always remain at the centre of your after care journey, meaning reassurance for both you and your loved ones.
If your regular carer has to leave suddenly, you don’t want to be left without care in place. Equally, if you’re unexpectedly discharged from hospital and your family are not able to care for you it can be an anxious time. There’s no need to worry though because our carers can supply you with personalised care from the moment you need them and our friendly team in Braintree can get emergency care to you within 24 hours.
Helping Hands have been delivering care to people in their own homes all over England and Wales since 1989, and our carers really are at the heart of our business. Not everyone gets to be a Helping Hands carer though; we only select people who share our passion for delivering the highest quality care and promoting our customers’ independence. Our carers are given comprehensive training and also have the opportunity to update their skills via professional development during their employment.
We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales and have been consistently rated as ‘Good’ for our professional standards of care delivery.
