What is respite care?
Respite care is temporary support, usually for a week or two, for a number of circumstances, such as your regular carer needing a break, your family going on holiday or while you recover from an accident or injury. Traditionally, respite care was always presumed to have been delivered in residential facilities where the person would move to temporarily, however that isn’t necessary if you have respite care at home.
When to choose respite care
When your regular carer needs a break, respite care at home can be the solution for ensuring your care continues without disruption. If you have a carer then you’ll know how important it is for them to have regular breaks to ensure that they remain in the best of health, and this is where respite care can be crucial. It can also be necessary when you are cared for by loved ones and they need to take some family time together, or if you don’t usually have care and you need some temporary support to get you back on your feet, for instance after an illness or accident.
Respite care services tailored to you
When you choose care from Helping Hands you’ll receive a bespoke package of care delivered by incredible carers who regularly go above and beyond to ensure their customers are cared for exceptionally. You’ll also have a personalised support plan in your home which will detail every aspect of your routine, to ensure that your day-to-day life runs as smoothly and as comfortably as possible. Whether you choose our live-in care or visiting care service, you’ll receive the highest quality care from everyone who works for us, with the only difference being that you’ll either receive pre-arranged visits as often or infrequently as you need them, or you’ll have one of our carers residing in your home with you for around the clock support.
