When you’re in need of some short-term extra support at home in the Cheadle area you would be well advised to talk to Helping Hands’ dedicated local Cheadle care team. They’ll be able to advise you on your options and explain how we can help you to remain in the home you love, whilst still receiving the care you need. You may already have a carer who is superb at what they do, however caring for another person can be physically and emotionally exhausting, which is why it’s crucial they get to take regular breaks away from their caregiving duties
Respite care is temporary support given by a different carer then usual, which allows your regular carer to take a well-deserved break. It also may be the case that you’ve never needed care in the past and have lived independently or with a partner, however due to an illness, accident or hospital stay you would appreciate some extra support to get you back on your feet. Respite used to be something that you’d move into temporarily, such as a care home or residential accommodation, however why leave your home if you don’t want to? With respite care from Helping Hands, you can get the best of both worlds.
You may have been in hospital for a while after an illness or surgery and need some extra support to get you back to full health when you get back home. Perhaps your family usually care for you but they’re in desperate need of a holiday, or you have professional care, but they need to take some time off. We can even help you in an emergency situation, making sure you have carer within 24 hours. There are many reasons why you may need to have respite care but only one company you need to approach to ensure it runs seamlessly: Helping Hands.
If you need respite care you need to know that you are in control of the care you choose; if you love the home you live in then it makes sense that your care continues in the place you’re most comfortable. We offer visiting care from just 30 minutes per week for occasional help and companionship, several visits a day or overnight if you have more complex needs, or we can offer live-in care for around the clock support. Whichever service you choose, you’ll always receive the same excellent levels of care that we’ve delivered to our customers since we were founded in 1989, so if you need medication and mobility support, meals prepared, housework undertaken, personal care and so much more, we can help.
We know what it takes to become an expert carer because we’ve been nurturing our carers to become the very best they can be for the last 30 years. We consider our carers to be the heart of our business because without them we couldn’t provide care and support for the thousands of people we do every day. Once they’re selected locally, we train them carefully so that they can build on their existing skills and apply their knowledge to their customers’ care.
We only select truly compassionate and empathetic people to become our carers, people who are willing to go the extra mile to help the vulnerable or in need. Because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, we can always guarantee that our high standards will remain consistent at all times. This is how you know you’ll be in the very best hands with us.
