Respite care is necessary for a number of reasons. Perhaps you’re being discharged from hospital or your regular carer needs a break. You may not be keen on the idea of moving to a residential home, even temporarily, so that’s where home care is invaluable, as you can have a continuation of care at home, as if your regular carer had never left. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes, or you can have several longer calls through the day, at night, or even around the clock. This means that your carers can come to you regularly at pre-arranged times or they can live in your home with you, which offers the benefit of continual companionship as well as care. If you would like to find out more, please talk to our friendly team in Chester who will advise you on how we could be supporting you or your loved ones.
Helping Hands carers are some of the most compassionate and empathetic in the industry, and that, teamed with the benefits that staying at home to be cared for offers, means that you and your loved ones can be confident in who is supporting you while you’re recovering. Our Chester based carers will be able to support you in your home with every aspect of your care needs including, mobility support, personal care, medication administration, meal preparation, housework and much more.
When your regular carer goes on holiday you need to know that your continuity of care isn’t going to be affected. The same is true if you’re discharged from hospital but need some extra support temporarily until you’re feeling recovered and back on your feet again. You’ll have a personalised support plan for your carers to work from, ensuring that your routines are always followed, which guarantees your care is delivered exactly to your specifications.
Whether you’ve been in hospital for a short or long time you can have a carer support you at home once you’re discharged. Your care is always personalised to you, meaning that no matter what your care needs, you will always remain at the centre of your care journey and care will be delivered to your particular preferences.
If you are being unexpectedly discharged from hospital or perhaps your regular carer has to rush back home for a family emergency, you don’t want to be left without care in place. Our friendly team in Chester can ensure you get emergency care as soon as you need it, within 24 hours.
