At Helping Hands, we’ve got over 30 years of experience in helping people across England and Wales to remain confident and independent in the secure and comfortable surroundings of their own homes. In that time, we’ve become experts in providing dedicated, transformative home care that supports people in the areas they need it most. Whether you just need a bit of extra companionship throughout the week, or require specialist support for a complex condition, our superb Hatfield care team will always be happy to make sure you get the right package of respite care to maintain your well-being and livelihood.
Respite care is short-term care that is ideal for those moments when you suddenly find yourself requiring additional support in your home at short notice. People find themselves requiring respite care for a number of different reasons. It might be that your normal carer has made themselves unavailable and hasn’t been able to find a replacement, or perhaps you’re recovering from surgery or a medical setback and aren’t able to perform your normal chores and routines. With respite care from Helping Hands, we’ll normally be able to get one of our fantastic, expertly trained carers to your home within 24 hours of your initial call, meaning you won’t need to worry about whether the housework will get done or who’s going to help you take care of yourself.
Respite care might seem like a daunting or unappealing prospect because you’re taking a step into the unknown – a new care provider, new carers and new ways of doing things. When you partner with Helping Hands, our friendly carers will make everything completely seamless and stress-free for you or your loved one. We’ll make sure your care plan is fully tailored to your specific needs and preferences, because we know your care needs will be completely unique to your condition and circumstances.
Our Hatfield care branch comprises a team of highly trained and dedicated carers who are on standby to provide you with flexible, person-centred respite care at home when you most need it. All of our carers have been handpicked for their empathetic, personable approach to their roles, and undergo a number of background checks before joining Helping Hands to ensure they’re the type of person you’d be happy to have in your home. When they start with us, every carer receives our award-winning training, as well as participating in regular refresher courses which keep them up to date with the latest industry standards and best practices. We also make sure all of our care services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which gives our customers peace of mind about our commitment to excellence across the board.
