What is respite care?
Sometimes known as emergency care, respite care offers you the opportunity to receive additional care support in the moments when you might unexpectedly require it. Respite care at home allows you to remain in the place where you feel most comfortable and secure, surrounded by familiar faces and views. At Helping Hands, our respite care is designed to ensure you’re never left feeling unsupported or isolated when you’re at your most vulnerable, and are instead able to enjoy the best possible quality of life.
Grimsby respite support from Helping Hands
It’s not always possible to anticipate when we might need additional care or support around the home. It might be that your regular carer is unavailable for a few weeks and you need to find someone to cover their normal routines, or perhaps you’re suffering from an illness or have had an accident and are unable to perform all the tasks and chores around the house that you normally would. Our Grimsby care team can support you at short notice whatever your circumstances might be, and we’ll make sure you receive a package of care that fully meets your needs and respects the way you like things to be done.
When to choose respite care?
You may wish to choose respite care when your regular care provision is interrupted, or when you require additional care to what you’re currently receiving – whether that’s due to age-related frailty, a change in your medical condition or any other reason. Receiving care at home gives you the opportunity to remain in the place you love the most, where you’ll be able to continue enjoying all the favourite views and furnishings as well as spending more time with friends and family. Your Helping Hands carer will take the time to familiarise themselves with your situation and your specific needs and preferences, and will always make sure things are done the way you’re used to.
Respite care services tailored to you
We know how important it is to have a care service that places emphasis on meeting your individual needs and preferences, so we’ll make sure you’re given a package of respite care that is fully tailored to your specific condition and circumstances. We’ve got over 30 years’ experience in providing expert, bespoke home care to customers across England and Wales, so whether you need support for a particular medical condition or have simply had a change in circumstances, we’re well placed to curate a care plan that promotes your independence and confidence.
