When to choose respite care

We appreciate that it isn’t always possible to know when you might require additional support at home. That’s why we offer respite care, which gives our customers the opportunity to access our exceptional home care at very short notice. Perhaps you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than anticipated, or you’ve got a regular carer who’s unexpectedly made themselves unavailable. Whatever your reason for requiring care in a pinch, we’re normally able to have one of our superb carers with you in your home within 24 hours of your initial phone call, meaning you won’t be left stressing about whether the housework will get done.

Respite care services tailored to you

When you choose Helping Hands for respite care, you’ll receive a care plan that is completely tailored to your particular needs and preferences. We know that your condition and circumstances will be unique to you, and you’ll like things to be done in a certain way around your home. That’s why our care experts in Hitchin will always take the time to evaluate your requirements and wishes and will offer you a package of care that fully supports you in the areas you most need help. And, if you have a regular carer for whom you need us to provide cover, we’ll do our very best to make sure we’re doing things in the way you’re used to.
