What is respite care?
Respite care is a type of emergency care that is normally used on a short-term basis, either when a person’s normal care provision is interrupted or when care needs unexpectedly change. When it comes to care requirements, it’s not always possible to plan ahead. Respite care exists for those times when care is needed at short notice on a temporary basis. With respite care from Helping Hands, you don’t need to worry about where your support will come from when your regular carer takes a well-earned break. All of our carers are highly trained to support you around your home in whatever way you might need – whether that’s mobility support, medication assistance, preparing your favourite meals, cleaning the house or anything else.
Chigwell respite support from Helping Hands
Since 1989, we’ve been helping people up and down the country to enjoy a better quality of life in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of their own home. Our home care focuses on giving our customers as much independence and autonomy as possible, so when you receive respite care from us we’ll make sure you’re never left feeling unsupported or isolated. Instead, our wonderful carers will provide you with a package of care that is specifically designed to meet your needs, no matter how straightforward or complex they might be, ensuring you receive the same excellent care that you’d expect from your normal carer.
When to choose respite care
It’s not always possible to predict when care needs might arise. Sometimes people require respite care when their normal carer is taking a well-earned holiday for a week or two; other times it’s when they’ve been discharged early from hospital, or have experienced a medical setback or accident. Whatever your reasons for requiring respite care, our Helping Hands Chigwell care team are standing by to provide you with exceptional, transformative respite care, making sure your normal routines and activities aren’t interrupted.
