Helping Hands have been delivering exceptional, person-centred care to customers up and down the nation for over 30 years. In that time, our dedicated home care has helped tens of thousands of people to continue enjoying their independence and spend as much time as possible doing the things they enjoy with family and friends. One of the areas of support in which we’ve long specialised is respite care, which is a short-term support option that is designed to give the regular caregiver – often a family member or friend – a much-needed break from their responsibilities while an expertly-trained carer looks after your loved one.
Respite care is a very important source of support for both the regular caregiver and the person being looked after. Caring for a loved one is an amazing thing to do, but it can also be very physically and emotionally draining – especially if they’re living with a complex condition such as a type of dementia or advanced cancer. Even the most stoic and dedicated caregivers need a break from time to time, and that’s where respite care from our lovely Cramlington carers can help. However straightforward or complex your loved one’s needs, we’ll be able to step in at short notice and ensure their support doesn’t miss a beat.
We’ll make sure your loved one’s respite care is provided fully in line with the care they’re used to receiving from their regular caregiver, so that there’s absolutely no disruption to their normal lifestyle and routines. Whether they like to get up and go to bed at particular times, like their home to be kept a certain way, have favourite meals they’d like their carer to prepare, or need accompanying out and about to appointments and the shops, our respite carers in Cramlington truly are incredibly loving and empathetic people who will go out of their way to ensure everyone is entirely at ease with your care arrangements.
When you choose Helping Hands Godalming for elderly care, you’ll be partnering with a care team comprising a brilliant group of carers who have all been specifically recruited for their kind, compassionate personalities and their commitment to delivering exceptional care each and every day.
