When you’re in need of some short-term support, either because you’ve got a temporary condition caused by illness or injury, or your regular carer needs to take a break, Helping Hands’ friendly Home Care in Buckinghamshire teams can help. Whether you are living with age-related frailties or have a highly complex condition, our expert respite care can make all of the difference to your life. We support every aspect of a person’s routine, including personal care, housework, helping you to access the community, and so much more.
You could need respite care because you’re usually cared for by family members, but they need some time to themselves. Equally, it could be that you have a professional carer supporting you, but they need to go on their scheduled holiday. Caring for another person is incredibly rewarding but can be physically and emotionally exhausting, therefore it’s important that carers get to have regular time off. This is where Helping Hands can help, across the whole of Buckinghamshire.
We offer bespoke care tailored exactly to your needs, which means we can ensure you are always taken care of exactly as you want. Your personalised support plan will detail how you wish to be cared for and will be flexible enough to change if your needs do. Respite care can be for a few days or weeks, depending on your circumstances, but thanks to our expertise in caring for a wide range of people over the last 30 years, we are the best placed to support you across the whole county.
We only accept people to work for us who have values and qualities that match ours, namely a passion for delivering nothing but the highest quality home care. We screen our carers carefully, checking all of their references thoroughly and also putting them through the DBS, as it’s the only way we can be sure that they are suitable to enter your home. This attention to detail, along with our comprehensive training and development programme, ensures that all of our carers are fully prepared to support you at home. In addition, both our visiting and live-in care services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission, meaning we’ll deliver the high standards we promise to.
You can get in touch with us in several different ways, choosing the one that suits you best. These include calling our customer services team seven days a week, talking to us via our webchat service and requesting a call back, or popping into your local branch. We have branches throughout Buckinghamshire, and you can check which is your nearest here.
