What is respite care?
When you or a loved one find yourself unexpectedly requiring additional support, you may wish to consider respite care. There is no specific time frame for respite care – it might last from a week up to several months, depending on your particular circumstances and needs. With respite care from Helping Hands, one of our brilliant carers will provide you with all the additional care you require in the comfortable, familiar environment of your own home, meaning you won’t have to stress about going into residential care or going unsupported for a period of time. Our carers will always do their utmost to ensure your personal preferences are respected, keeping you at the centre of your care journey.
Harrogate respite support from Helping Hands
We can’t always foresee when we might require emergency care or a bit of extra help around the home. Perhaps you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than anticipated and your regular carer isn’t available for a week or two, or maybe you’ve experienced an accident which will keep you off your feet for a while. Whatever your reason, our amazing team of carers in Harrogate will make sure you receive all the support you require, meaning you’ll be able to focus on your normal routines or making a full and speedy recovery.
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
When you choose Helping Hands as your home care partner, you’ll receive a package of care that is completely tailored to your individual needs and wishes. We’re able to offer support to people living with a wide range of conditions – including types of dementia and cancer – and can provide care on all levels, no matter how straightforward or complex. Our brilliant carers can support you around the home in any way you might need – from preparing meals and giving mobility support, to helping you attend appointments and doing the laundry.
