What is respite care?
Respite care is short-term, temporary care when your primary carer is unavailable to carry out their caregiving duties. This may be due to a planned holiday, a family emergency or they may have unexpectedly fallen ill. Or you may find yourself needing additional support following an accident or operation. Whatever the reason, our amazing Dulwich care team is happy to step in and support you with your care needs.

When to choose respite care
Being a carer is extremely rewarding, but it is important that they take regular breaks to recharge their batteries. However, that doesn’t mean you need to be alone when your carer is away. At Helping Hands, we can provide respite care on a visiting care or live-in care basis. Our team will provide you with additional support from our dedicated and empathetic carers, whenever you need it.

Our tailored packages will mean the care you receive will be unique to you and your lifestyle. You will have full control over how we support you in your day-to-day life. Our carers can visit you from as little as 30 minutes a week to several visits a day with our visiting-care package. However, if you feel you need care round the clock care then you can choose our live-in care package.
