What is respite care?

Respite care is when you need short-term, temporary care. This may be due to your usual carer being away or you might be recovering from a surgery or accident. At Helping Hands, we have been providing support at home for more than 30 years. Whether that’s an extra hand with the laundry, cooking meals, or a shoulder to lean on, our fantastic carers will be by your side – no matter what.

Halifax respite support from Helping Hands

When you need support, you can always count on our Halifax home care team. We have been providing exceptional care at home since 1989 and assisting individuals to live an independent and content life, no matter what condition they are living with. Our friendly and empathetic carers can accompany you when your loved ones are away or help support you on the road to recovery after an accident or surgery. We can assist you with walking the dog or making sure you keep up to date with the headlines by buying the daily newspaper for you – our carers are here to make your life a little easier.

When to choose respite care

Respite care is usually required when you need additional support at home. You may have been discharged from the hospital earlier than anticipated or your primary carer may have a family emergency to attend to. There’s no need to worry, as our Halifax care team can provide you with the support you need, usually within 24 hours, so you can focus on things that matter to you most. Whether that’s spending time with your beloved pets or investing time in your hobbies, we will make sure you continue to do the things you enjoy.

Respite care services tailored to you

At Helping Hands, we understand how important it is to adhere to your wishes and requirements. That’s why we’ll take time to get to know you and offer you a plan that is fully tailored to you. There may be a certain way you like to have things done, for example, the way you fold clothes or cook a particular meal. Rest assured, we’ll care for you the way you like – after all, you’re the one in control. We can offer care on a visiting care and live-in care basis, so you’re sure to find a package that will suit your needs.

Qualified respite carers in Location

Our carers are an asset to our company and they surpass our expectations every single day. We handpick our carers for their compassionate, caring and empathetic qualities and they go through a variety of background checks, so we can make sure they are the right person to care for you. When our carers start their employment with us, they are enrolled on our award-winning training course and continue to keep their skill up to date via our refresher courses. For added reassurance, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales. This means our services are regularly inspected to ensure we are providing a high level of care.
