At Helping Hands, we are recognised as the UK’s most widely trusted home care provider. We provide empathetic and compassionate care to those who need it most. Whether you are looking for long-term or short-term care, we will be sure to find a care package to suit your needs.
Our home care in Gloucestershire team offers short-term care, otherwise known as respite care, for individuals who need care for a week or longer. Our carers can support you with getting dressed, preparing dinner, accompanying you to medical appointments and running errands. Whatever you need, we will always be there for you.
For added reassurance, we are regulated and monitored by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales. This means our service is regularly inspected to ensure we provide high-quality care for our customers.
If you are recovering from an illness, operation or accident and need support until you get back on your feet, respite care can be a viable solution for you. Or perhaps your primary carer is going away on holiday and you need someone to step in, then respite care will be the best option. Whether you need help with mobility, the grocery shop, picking up medication, preparing meals, running errands or stacking the dishwasher, we have you covered.
We offer respite care on a visiting and live-in basis. With visiting care, you can receive support from as little as 30 minutes a week. Or, if you prefer to have round-the-clock care, live-in care is available. This is when one of our carers lives with you at home. So, you will have support 24 hours a day.
Remaining at home allows you to stay in a familiar environment, close to personal possessions and loved ones. Plus, you don’t have the hassle of relocating, especially if it is only for a short time.
Our carers are friendly, compassionate and kind individuals who consistently go above and beyond for our customers. They really do make a difference.
All our carers are fully trained and undergo a strict background check. They continue to develop their skills by completing refresher courses. So, you can rest assured knowing you’ll be cared for by a knowledgeable and trustworthy individual.
Contact our friendly customer care team today for more information on our respite care service. They are available seven days a week to answer any questions you may have. You can speak to them over the phone or via Live Chat online. Or, if you prefer to talk to a member of the team, walk into our local branch. We would love to have you over for a chat and a cuppa.
