What is respite care?
Respite care is when you or your loved one may need additional support for a short period of time. There are many reasons for why you need respite care – your usual carer may be away for the weekend, have a family emergency to attend to or you may need additional support following an operation or illness. Whatever the reason, respite care allows you to receive care from home without compromising your routine and independence.
Frinton-on-sea respite support from Helping Hands
At Helping Hands, we have been providing care at home for more than 30 years, so it’s no wonder that we are one of the best care services in the UK. Our Frinton-on-sea care team has some of the best carers in the industry and is here to support you for as long as you need.
Our team can provide you care for as little as 30 minutes a week or longer with visiting care. If you prefer to have support round-the-clock, you can choose to use our live-in care services. Our carers can help you with the laundry, ironing, and cooking, so you can focus on the things you love. We will make sure you continue to invest time in your hobbies, as your mental upkeep is important to us. Whether you enjoy spending time with your pets, going for a walk, doing crosswords or baking – we want you to live life the way you want.
