Cambridge respite support from Helping Hands

At Helping Hands we’ve been supporting people to receive care in their own homes for more than 30 years, so we really are the homecare experts. Respite care from Helping Hands can be for a short period of cover, such as a few days, or longer where necessary. Our carers offer visiting care from 30 minutes at a time, call several times a day, throughout the night or offer live-in care, so we really can support you with a fully bespoke package that will be personalised to you and cover every aspect of your care. To find out more about how we could be supporting you in the short or longer-term, talk to our helpful Cambridge carers today.

Why respite care is a good option for short-term support

Having respite care from our home carers in Cambridge means you’ll be supported by expert carers in your own home and who will cover every task you need completing, such as personal care, mobility support, medication administration or housework. Your flexible package of care can adapt with you, so if at any point it becomes clear your needs have changed, we will ensure that your care package does too. Staying at home to receive care can be beneficial for both your physical and mental health, so if you would like one-to-one support that truly puts you at the centre of your care experience, have a word with our friendly Cambridge team.

Respite care services tailored to you

You need to know that you’ll receive continuity of care once you’re discharged from hospital or while your regular carer is away and Helping Hands Cambridge team will make this happen for you. Your routines will be followed at all times and the benefits of one-to-one care mean that you get up and go to bed when you want, and have your meals when you say, not when a carer has a brief window of time to help you.

Post-discharge support

Respite care means you can have someone with you for as short an amount of time as you need, just to make sure your recovery goes smoothly. If you’re being discharged from hospital and you are concerned that you won’t be able to manage, respite care is an ideal solution that will see a carer supporting you at home until you’re able to manage yourself or family can take over.

Emergency care

If you need care in an emergency and your family members live quite far away it can be a nerve-wracking time trying to sort out what can be done. However, having respite care from the Cambridge team means that a carer will be in your home the same day you’re discharged, and your needs will be taken care of from the minute you arrive home. Whether you have visiting calls or live-in care, you can be confident that our expert carers will support you with every aspect of your home life. Even if you have higher level needs, our nurse-led care supported by our team of clinical nurses means that we can cater for every aspect of your care journey.

Why choose our Cambridge respite care team?

Helping Hands really are the homecare experts as we have been supporting people across England and Wales to receive care in their own homes since 1989. To ensure that they are fully prepared to care for their customers, our carers all receive rigorous training when they join us so whether they’re new to care or have years of experience, they will be able to support you fully. The learning doesn’t just stop there though; we offer continuous professional development opportunities to all of our employees so that they can equip themselves with the highest level of skills which can then be applied to supporting our customers. We are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales and are consistently rated ‘Good’ for every aspect of our care delivery.
