Our Doncaster respite care team can provide you with a well-deserved break from your care-giving duties or support you whilst you are not needing care long-term. Whether it’s covering a day or a week for 30 minutes to full time live-in care, the level of care is completely tailored to your loved one.
Taking care of a loved one is one of the most selfless and rewarding things you can do. That being said, caregiving can also be extremely demanding and take its toll on your health and wellbeing. Everyone needs some time for themselves and carers shouldn’t feel guilty about taking a break from time to time. Taking a well-deserved break will allow you to recharge your batteries and return to your loved one feeling refreshed and prepared to deal with the demands of caregiving. Our respite home care services give carers the opportunity to enjoy some relaxing downtime while having confidence that their loved one is receiving the support they need.
As one of the UK’s leading home care providers, we have 30 plus years of experience supporting people all across the UK. All of our home care Doncaster team undergo a strict recruitment process, before completing award-winning training and assessments at our fully-regulated Centre of Excellence – the first to be accredited in the UK. Helping Hands carers complete regular training to broaden their skills and expertise across a diverse range of areas including dementia care and other complex medical conditions. You can have complete reassurance knowing that our dedicated carers are available to step in and support your loved one if you are ever unavailable.
Caring for a loved one can be physically and mentally draining, particularly if they have a complex health condition or require round-the-clock support. It is completely natural – and essential – to need a break from caregiving to unwind and take some time for yourself. Many studies have shown that taking a break from caregiving can make you healthier, happier, and better able to cope with the demands of caring. The main benefit of our respite home care services is that your loved one will continue to receive care in the place they feel most comfortable – their home. Home respite care is an excellent alternative to residential care as it avoids any disruption to your loved one’s routine. This is why we specialise in creating unique home care packages and focus on helping people live life on their terms. Our respite care will also give you the chance to sample the wonderful care options that we have available locally to you. This means you never have to worry about your loved one being without the care they need if you are ever unavailable.
We appreciate that everyone is different, with their own unique care needs. This is why we will take the time to get to know you and create a completely unique home care plan that is tailored to your loved one. Our respite carers will ensure consistency of care by following the routines and patterns that your loved one is used to. We can arrange a home visit for a little as 30 minutes a week all the way to full-time live-in care. A dedicated respite carer can assist your loved one with many daily tasks and activities including household chores, personal care, administering medication. Or, they can simply be available to provide companionship and emotional support while you’re away. Our flexible care plans give you the freedom to choose the level of care your loved one requires. Your home care plan can be amended whenever necessary to ensure that your loved one is receiving the best possible care. We will use our knowledge and expertise to provide care that is unique and tailored to your loved one.
As a family-led company, we understand that many caregivers feel extremely anxious about leaving their loved ones in the care of someone else. However, it is essential that you take some time for yourself and enjoy a rest.
