When to choose respite care

Respite care is short-term care that is available for people who require additional support around the home at short notice. It might be that you or your loved one have been discharged from the hospital at an earlier date than originally anticipated, or your regular carer has become unavailable for a period of time and hasn’t been able to arrange cover. Whatever your reason for urgently needed care, our Gillingham care team are here to help. We’re normally able to have one of our wonderful, empathetic carers in your home within 24 hours of your initial phone call, meaning you won’t be left feeling isolated or unsupported.

Respite care services tailored to you

When you partner with Helping Hands for respite care, you’ll get a care service that is fully tailored to your specific needs and wishes. We know that no two people have the same support needs, particularly in their own home, so our Gillingham carers will take the time to understand your care requirements, as well as respecting your personal preferences, to ensure you get a package of support that is providing you with all the help you need. Our wonderful, highly-trained carers will be able to help around the home in whatever way you require – from providing personal care and helping you bathe and dress, to doing the laundry and preparing meals.

Qualified respite carers in Gillingham

We’re extremely proud of our brilliant carers in Gillingham – they truly are our most valuable asset, and they’ll always do their utmost to ensure our customers receive only the very best home. All of our carers have been selectively recruited for their kind, empathetic personalities which make them perfect for a care-based role, and we also perform extensive background checks on everyone before they join to make sure they’re a perfect fit for Helping Hands and our customers.

When they start with us, every carer receives our award-winning training which gives them the knowledge and the skillset to be able to provide a wide range of support to people with varying levels of needs. They’ll then continue to participate in regular refresher courses which keep them up to date with the latest industry standards and best practices.
