If you’re being discharged from hospital or your regular carer needs a break, respite care at home is invaluable. You can have a continuation of care in the place you love most, or if you’ve never had a carer before, it means that you can receive care at home without the need to relocate to a residential home, even temporarily. Helping Hands have been supporting people to live as independently as possible in their own homes since 1989. And with care visits starting from as little as 30 minutes at a time, right up to around the clock live-in care, we really can support everyone, regardless of their needs. We are experts in caring for people living with dementia and have experience with a wide range of conditions, from lower level to highly complex needs. We can even provide nurse-led care from our team of clinical leads, so regardless of what condition you’re living with, please talk to our friendly home care team in Bury St Edmunds about how we could support you today.
Respite care at home is highly beneficial for your physical and mental wellbeing, as it will be enhanced by being in a place that means the world to you. Being able to stay at home and still be taken care of will ensure that you live the best quality of life you can, especially when supported by our compassionate and empathetic carers, who will be able to support you with mobility, personal care, medication administration, meal preparation, housework and much more.
Your care package comes with a personalised support plan for your carers to work from, ensuring that your routines are always followed. Whether you have visiting care or live-in support, your carer will deliver the same excellent care to you, along with companionship and a welcome friendly smile.
When you’ve been in hospital and are returning home, nothing really substitutes for the services of a professional carer. You may feel that you can manage on your own, but until you’re fully back on your feet an extra pair of hands can make all the difference to your wellbeing. This also means that your loved ones can just concentrate on spending time with you, rather than feeling they have to provide care support too.
If you have a regular carer and they have to rush back home for a family emergency, or you’re being discharged from hospital at short notice, it’s vital you’re not left without care in place. You really need someone who can be there for you at all times, or even move into your home if your needs require it. Our emergency care can be organised quickly within 24 hours so you won’t be left without care when you need it.
