Corby respite support from Helping Hands
Respite care can be needed for a variety of reasons; perhaps your regular carer is in need of a well-earned break, your family are going on holiday or you are recovering from an accident or illness. Short-term care can be daunting if you are unsure about having someone new in your home but with the expert Corby home care team looking after you, you’ll never have to worry about different faces or continuity of care. All of our carers are compassionate by nature and will go above and beyond to ensure that you remain as comfortable as possible in the home you love, and thanks to your personalised support plan your care will continue as if your regular carer was still with you. Even in an emergency situation we can be there for you, as we’re generally able to provide you with one of our amazing carers within 24 hours of your call.
What is respite care?
Respite care is temporary, usually short-term care that covers for either a period of recuperation after an accident or illness, or when a regular carer cannot provide care as usual. This could be because they need to take a regularly scheduled break or because there is an unforeseen emergency situation, such as carer sickness. In these circumstances, Helping Hands can provide respite cover at home for a person, to prevent them having to go into temporary residential care and leave the home they love. Respite care can cover all of the usual personal and household duties that our carers undertake, such as personal care, housework, medication, meal preparation, mobility support and much more.
When to choose respite care
Whenever you need short-term care for any reason, respite care from the Corby team should be your first choice. Giving your regular carer a break is crucial to ensure that they can continue to care for you consistently and thank to our expertise honed over 30 years of home care delivery you can always rely on Helping Hands to be there when you need us. Whether you have plenty of time to make the arrangements or an emergency situation presents itself, talk to us about your respite care needs for yourself or a loved one and we assure you we’ll deliver expert, individualised care every single day.
Respite care services tailored to you
At Helping Hands our main aim is always to promote your independence and ensure you live the very best life you can at home, and this ethos hasn’t changed since we were founded in 1989. Remaining in the home you love for respite care means you get a consistency and continuity of care that will be difficult to recreate in a residential home environment, due to staffing limits etc. One-to-one care at home is beneficial for both your emotional and physical wellbeing, and with your bespoke package of care designed for your needs and your personalised support plan for your carers to follow, you will always be kept firmly at the centre of your own care journey.
