Hastings respite support from Helping Hands
If you’re looking for respite care in the Hastings area then look no further than Helping Hands. We’ve been supporting people to remain safe and cared for in their own homes since 1989, and in that time we’ve become the definitive experts in delivering the very highest standards of care for our customers. Every single day of the year we support thousands of people to remain living in the home they love, and our incredible carers regularly go above and beyond to ensure that their customers live the very best life they can at home.
What is respite care?
Respite care can be delivered short or longer term, as a planned break for a regular carer or in an emergency when care wasn’t anticipated. It’s important that regular carers get a chance for a break on a regular basis, so that they can return to care for you refreshed and with renewed energy, so whether you have another care company or a family member care for you, instead of thinking you have to leave your home and go into residential respite, talk to our Hastings carers about respite care at home.
When to choose respite care
Perhaps you’ve been in hospital recently and your recovery at home will mean you won’t be as able to manage for a while, or maybe your regular carer is overdue a holiday; whatever the circumstances, respite care is important for both you and your carer. It means you get a different person coming to support you which can be interesting for a while and also that your regular carer gets the chance for a holiday, knowing you’re in expert hands and that they can relax while your care continues as usual. Thanks to your personalised support plan, your respite carer will know exactly how you like your routine undertaken, meaning that you won’t need to worry that things will be changing and you won’t get the care you’re used to. Additionally, in an emergency situation we can still help, perhaps if your regular carer is taken ill, and we’ll usually be able to get a carer to your home within 24 hours.
Respite care services tailored to you
Your bespoke package of care will be tailored exactly to your particular requirements, as we don’t believe that ‘one size fits all’ at Helping Hands. You’ll get dedicated, one-to-one support from us that you wouldn’t be able to get in a residential home and seeing the same person every day means it’ll be easy to build a quick rapport between you and your carer. Whether you choose visiting care or live-in care for your respite support, you’ll receive the highest levels of care, meaning loved ones can relax and be sure you’re in the best hands.
Qualified respite carers in Hastings
Our carers are amazing – we wouldn’t be able to support the thousands of people that we do without them, so we always make sure they know how highly valued they are. We don’t just give them superb training when they first join us, we ensure that they have regular opportunities to add to their skills and we always encourage development for everyone that wants it. We also have regular carer awards and make sure they feel valued by being directly employed by us, rather than the self-employment that other care companies insist upon. Our services are fully managed across the whole of England and Wales, and thanks to us being regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones can have full confidence in our ability to support you expertly.
