Helping Hands have been supporting people to remain as independent as possible in their own home for over 30 years, and respite care is just one of the services we offer. If you’re being discharged from hospital or your regular carer needs a break, respite care can be an appropriate alternative to residential care, even temporarily. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes at a time, you can have several longer calls through the day, at night, or even live-in care around the clock. Your carer can come to you at pre-arranged times to deliver your care or you can have a live-in carer, which offers the benefit of around the clock companionship. To learn more, please talk to our friendly home care in Coventry team who will advise you on how we could be supporting you or your loved ones.
Our 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. Having care from us means you’ll be supported by some of the most compassionate and empathetic carers in the industry, and your personalised support plan means that your routines and preferences will always be respected. Staying at home for respite care means you’ll be surrounded by familiar possessions and beloved pets, which can help your recovery both mentally and physically.
If you already have a regular carer but they need to take a break, you want to be reassured that your continuity of care isn’t going to be affected. Equally, if you’re about to be discharged from hospital but need some extra support until you’re feeling recovered, you’ll appreciate having a carer at home until you’re back on your feet again. You’ll have a personalised support plan for your carer to work from, ensuring that your routines are always respected, and your care delivered to your exact specifications.
Being discharged from hospital can be a time to celebrate as you get to return to your beloved home and surrounded by precious people and pets. However, if you need extra support temporarily to ensure you can manage you need to know that you won’t be on your own. Respite care means that one of our carers can support you from the moment you return home and as your care is always personalised to you, you’ll always remain at the centre of your care journey.
If your regular carer has to rush back home, perhaps due to a family emergency, you don’t want to be left without care in place. Perhaps you are being unexpectedly discharged from hospital and your family are not able to care for you due to short notice or lack of proximity to you. Despite this, our carers can supply you with personalised care from the moment you need them and our friendly team in Coventry can ensure you get emergency care within 24 hours.
