What is respite care?
Respite care is sometimes necessary when your permanent carer needs a break, or you would appreciate a change of scene during your care delivery.
Traditionally, respite care was presumed to be delivered in a residential or care home, however respite care at home is something that Helping Hands are experts in, if you’d rather remain in the place you love best. It’s vital that your carers get to take regular breaks so that they don’t become exhausted, and that’s where respite care with our Bridgwater Home Care team can be invaluable.
Bridgwater respite support from Helping Hands
Respite care from the Bridgwater team can be for a short period of cover, or longer where necessary. Avoid the upheaval of moving to a residential facility temporarily when you can just as easily receive the care you need in your own home.
We’re considered the home care experts at Helping Hands because we’ve been delivering the highest quality care for more than 30 years, which means you can be totally confident of our consistently high standards.
When to choose respite care
You may require respite care because you are living with a complex condition, you prefer having the reassurance of continuous care, or your regular carer is looking to go on holiday.
Knowing you will be expertly cared for when they are away will be a source of comfort for your family members, especially if they are your regular carers, and will ensure they get to properly relax for a while.
Respite care services tailored to you
Our respite carers will make sure every aspect of your daily needs are supported, whether that’s with your medication, mobility, personal care, housework, or so much more.
Your bespoke package of care will be accompanied by a support plan that will detail exactly how you like your daily routine to progress, and with short-term, temporary respite care you have the flexibility to decide if you would like something more permanent afterwards. You may find that you are happy beginning with visiting care but would like to move over to live in care later on, and we have the infrastructure to make sure that can happen.
We can also offer emergency care if the need is unexpected, for instance because of a hospital discharge or recovery from a fall.
