What is respite care?
Respite care is when you need short-term care for a weekend, two weeks or even longer. Our Helping Hands team can provide you with respite care at home, without you having to move into a residential care home.
At Helping Hands, we have been providing expert home care for thousands of families in England and Wales since 1989. That’s why caring for you is second nature to us – we provide the support, whenever you need it. Whether you need help with the laundry, cooking meals or companionship – our dedicated and compassionate carers will come to you.
Eastbourne respite support from Helping Hands
Our friendly Eastbourne care team are some of the best homecare experts in the UK. They are available to provide you with care for as little as 30 minutes a week or longer with visiting care. Or if you prefer to have someone live with you, you can choose to opt for our live-in care package – all depending on what condition you are living with.
Our Eastbourne care team will focus on promoting your independence and helping you live the life you aspire to lead. After all, we are your biggest supporter and we want to provide you with the highest level of care you deserve. So, whether you need a hand with your weekly shop or feeding your goldfish, our carers will be by your side for as long as you need.
When to choose respite care
If your regular carer is on a well-earned break or you need additional help following an operation or illness, respite care is the ideal solution. It is perfect for those who need care temporarily. Being at home allows you to remain in the place you love most, around your personal belongings and things you cherish. Plus, it will give your family peace of mind, knowing that you are being cared for by compassionate, trustworthy and dedicated carers.
Respite care services tailored to you
At Helping Hands, we take time to get to know you, understand your lifestyle, personality and interests – so we can provide specialist care that is bespoke to you and your needs. We make sure we choose carers that don’t just support you in your daily life but also share the same interests as you. After all, we believe that there shouldn’t be any obstacles to your hobbies or aspirations. Our carers will always motivate you to live the life you want – no matter what.
Qualified respite carers in Eastbourne
Our dedicated carers are the driving force of Helping Hands and we don’t know what we would do without them. All our carers go through an intensive training programme and continue to develop their skills via refresher courses. Before we select individuals to join Helping Hands, they must go through a background check. So, you know you will be safe and well looked after in your own home.
We are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales. They regularly inspect our services to make sure we provide a safe, responsive and trustworthy environment at home.
