Dartford respite support from Helping Hands
Respite care needs can often arise at short notice, for instance after a hospital discharge or if your regular carer needs to take a break. With Helping Hands’ dedicated local Dartford care team though, you will be cared for expertly at home with a seamless transition from your regular carer, or to get you back on your feet after surgery, an accident or illness. Our considerate and compassionate carers will be able to care for you to the highest standards, either on a visiting basis or living-in with you around the clock, and even in an emergency we can ensure that there is someone with you in a matter of hours to provide you with the care you need to live as independently as possible at home.
What is respite care?
Respite care is a short-term package of care that will cover your regular carer’s break, when your family or you want to go on holiday, or to get you back on your feet after being in hospital. Respite care at home is preferable to many people because it means you don’t have to uproot from the place you love and move into a care home, even temporarily. Having a carer come to you rather than the other way around makes so much more sense and means you receive a bespoke package of care that is centred around your needs and preferences.
When to choose respite care
Our amazing carers can accompany you to your chosen destination if you feel like taking a holiday, or if you’re staying at home but your family or carer needs to take a break then your respite carer will come to you, providing a seamless transition from one to the other. Perhaps you’ve been in hospital or you’ve had a fall and you don’t usually require care to live independently, however you may feel it will be beneficial just while you get back on your feet and help you to reintegrate into your usual way of life.
Respite care services tailored to you
When you choose respite care from your local Dartford team you will receive a bespoke package of care, designed to your exact requirements and containing every aspect of your preferred routines. Accompanied by a personalised support plan that will detail what you like to do, where you enjoy going and every other important detail, our carers will ensure you get all the help you need with your daily routines and tasks, such as personal care, mobility support, medication, meal preparation, housework and enjoying the local community. Whether you would prefer care and support on a visiting care or live-in care basis you will receive the same high quality care from our amazing carers, for as long as you need us.

Our carers are the best at what they do and that’s not just our opinion – we hear from our customers and their loved ones on a daily basis telling us what an amazing difference our carers have made to their daily lives. We love hearing feedback because it lets us know what we’re doing is making a difference every single day, whether it’s helping a customer to live their best life possible at home or supporting someone to pass away with dignity. We see every aspect of life’s journey which inspires and motivates us to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to live as well as possible, in the home they love and don’t want to leave.
