Respite care may be necessary if your regular carer needs to take a holiday, a short break, or because they’re sick. It may also be that you’ve never had care before, but you would like some extra support after an illness, accident or a stay in hospital or that your family usually support you but need to go away for a while. It’s vital that caregivers get to take regular breaks from their caring duties to ensure that they stay in good physical and mental health and return to you refreshed and renewed from their time away. We can also support you in an emergency; perhaps if you’ve had a fall or are being unexpectedly discharged from hospital and our friendly and dedicated Buxton care team will support you from your first call and throughout your care journey.
You may need respite care due to planned or unplanned circumstances and Helping Hands can deliver it on either a visiting or live-in basis. Respite care can last for a week or two but can go on much longer. It’s usually delivered by a carer from a different provider to your regular one, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave the home you love and go into residential care. You can have respite care in the comfort and familiarity of your own home, thanks to our amazing carers who regularly go above and beyond to ensure our customers live their best life possible.
You may choose respite care when you are being discharged from hospital and need a little extra support to get back on your feet, when you’ve had an illness or fall, or if your regular carer needs to take a break. Remaining at home for your care means you get to stay in the place that means the most to you and keeps you close to your loved ones and precious pets. If your carer needs a well-earned break then it’s important that your care continues with as little disruption as possible, and that’s where the Buxton team come in. They will ensure your carer is familiar with your situation and has a detailed support plan to follow in your home, meaning they will always make sure your routines and preferences are respected.
Your package of respite care will be tailored to your specific needs, regardless of the condition you’re living with. As a company we are highly experienced in working with many different conditions, including dementia, cancer, paralysis, head injury and supporting people along their palliative care journey, so you can be confident that we’ll be able to care for you on a either a short or longer-term basis. Whether you choose visiting care – meaning that your respite carer will come to you at regular pre-arranged times – or live-in care, which will see your carer residing in your home with you, we’ll offer superior standards of care every single day. Our carers can support you with personal care, medication, mobility, meal preparation, housework, laundry and accessing the community, if required, plus so much more.
