Why choose our Enfield respite care team?
For people who are living in the borough of Enfield and are looking for respite cover, we are here to help. Our professional respite care team based in the area is on hand to cover any time off whether you or your loved one uses the services of a carer or you are the carer.
Caring can be hard work and challenging at times and it is important that everybody who is working as a carer – officially or unofficially – gets some time off. The respite care that we provide here at Helping Hands, can be organised at short notice or planned well in advance, and we can also cover sickness.
With over 30 years’ experience in the care industry, here at Helping Hands, we have honed our ability to provide excellent, professional, and friendly home care, meticulously following care plans, and making everyone feel comfortable and at ease through what can be a disruptive time.
Enfield respite support from Helping Hands
Our team of carers based in the Enfield area is able to support you or your loved one regardless of your particular situation, with training in everything from dementia care to nursing-led care, and always a smile on their faces.
All of our care team members are hand-picked and employed directly by us here at Helping Hands, and we don’t use agency staff. They have all passed DBS checks before they can start working with us and are put through demanding training courses to ensure that all of our fantastic care staff are able to care for our customers safely and effectively.
When to choose Guildford respite care
Our excellent carers in Enfield are on hand to cover your respite needs whenever you need them. Whether it is to cover unplanned sickness, planned holidays, or unplanned family emergencies, our respite care team is here for you.
We can cover all of the normal duties that you or your normal carer would carry out, including personal hygiene support, help with continence management, the preparation of nutritious meals, light housework such as washing and ironing, administering medication, companionship, running errands, and helping you or your loved one to get out to medical appointments or social gatherings.
Having time for respite is extremely important in the life of a carer – whether you are paid or unpaid – and here at Helping Hands, we are here to make it easier. Respite can be an anxious time for both the customer and the carer, but our team of professional, friendly carers can follow care plans and routines that are already in place and know what it takes to put everyone at ease – meaning happy customers, relaxed carers, and maybe even a new friendship!
Respite care services tailored to you
Here at Helping Hands, we understand that everybody has different needs – as well as likes and dislikes. This is why we offer a range of different respite care services.
Our full-time, live-in carers can be with you or your loved one 24-hours a day, providing continuous, round-the-clock care. Our live-in carers are carefully matched to our customers to ensure that you are likely to get on and can ensure that routines are not changed throughout the respite period.
We can also arrange for visiting care ranging from one day a week to several visits each day to fit in with existing routine. Our visiting care team is able to support with anything from mobility to medication.
