What is respite care?
Respite care is when you need temporary care for a short period, usually when your primary carer is unavailable or away for a weekend. They may have a family emergency to attend to or have a holiday planned. Or you may need support following an accident or early discharge from the hospital. Respite care is usually required for a few days, weeks or longer, which is why at Helping Hands, we offer care packages that are flexible and fully tailored to your needs.

Our home care Epsom team can provide you with the care you need within 24 hours of you getting in touch. We understand that you may need to organise respite care at short notice, which is why at Helping Hands, we work fast to make sure you are not left unsupported and alone.
Plus, you won’t have to move into a residential care home, our carers will come to you. You’ll be able to receive care in the comfort of your own home. Whether you choose our visiting care or live-in care package, our compassionate and friendly carers will be by your side, no matter what.
When to choose respite care
There are many reasons why you may need respite care. Your regular carer may need to take a well-earned break from their caregiving duties or you may need help to recover after an accident, illness or surgery. Whatever your reason, our Epsom care team will be able to design a respite care package tailored to you and your needs.
