Whether you’re coming out of hospital, going on holiday, or your regular carer is sick, respite care from Helping Hands can be the practical solution. We offer one-to-one care in your own home, or wherever you need to go, from highly trained and skilled carers.
At Helping Hands we’ve been delivering the highest standards of care in our customers’ homes since 1989, and we still work to the same family-led values today. Our carers will follow a support plan personalised exactly to your requirements, to ensure your care follows your preferred daily routine. If you’d like to learn more about how we could be supporting you or your loved ones, have a chat with our friendly Brighton home care team today.
You might usually be supported by family members or have a regular carer, but everyone needs a break from time to time. Receiving respite care at home is highly beneficial, as it saves you from the upheaval of relocating to a care home, even temporarily. This means you can stay in the place you love, while your loved ones get the reassurance that you will still be cared for to the highest standards. Our carers can come to you on a visiting or live-in basis depending on your preferences, and we also have a team of clinical nurses if you are in need of the highest levels of complex support. With visits starting from just 30 minutes, we will be able to help you get back on your feet, or for around the clock care and companionship one of our carers can move into your home until you’re fully recovered.
We’ll provide a personalised package of care that allows your regular carer to get some time to themselves, or if you usually cope on your own, we will support you to get back to that stage. Your carer will be able to undertake all necessary care tasks, including medication administration, mobility support, housework & laundry, meal preparation and personal care, as well as anything else you need support with.
When you’re being discharged from hospital, you need to know there will be a continuity of care available when you return home. If you only require support to get back on your feet and know it won’t be for long, respite care at home can be beneficial. Your package of care will be flexible to your ongoing needs, and if afterwards you’d like care to continue, your helpful Brighton team will make all the arrangements for you.
When care is needed in a hurry, it’s essential to get emergency care installed quickly so that all of your needs are fully supported. Family will often step in temporarily but that can be difficult as they’ll have their own lives to organise, plus they may not live close by. Your wellbeing will benefit from having professional carers looking after you and it also means that your loved ones can be reassured that you’re receiving the best care possible.
Helping Hands have been supporting people to live as independently as possible at home for over 30 years, so it goes without saying that we’re considered the homecare experts. Our carers are at the heart of our business, so we only recruit people who share our ethos for providing the highest quality standards of care. We highly train our carers when they join us and also offer opportunities for developing their skills, which can then be applied to the care our customers receive.
We are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, demonstrating our commitment to delivering the highest standards of care and have been consistently rated ‘Good’ for our care delivery.
If you would like to discover more about how we could be supporting you or a loved one, our dedicated team of customer care specialists are available seven days a week to take your call. Or if you prefer, you can contact us via our Brighton branch website, and we’ll happily call you back.
