What is respite care?
If your usual caregiver is unavailable don’t worry, you can still get expert care at home without having to move into a care home.
At Helping Hands, we have been providing care at home for more than 30 years, and our Edgbaston care team is just one of the many dedicated teams we have. Whether you need support for 30 minutes a day or longer, we’ll be by your side – no matter what.
If your primary carer is away for a day or a weekend, respite care is the ideal short-term solution.
We understand that caring for a loved one can take its toll emotionally, as well as physically. That’s why our service offers your carer a temporary break and a sense of reassurance, knowing that you are being cared for by our friendly team. Even if it’s just for a few hours, we are always happy to lend an extra pair of hands.
