At Helping Hands, we’ve got over 30 years’ experience in enabling people to remain independent, confident and secure in their own homes. We firmly believe that staying at home to receive care gives you a richer, more fulfilling life, and that our care services can be truly transformative. One of the areas of care in which our Hove carers specialise is respite care, which is a branch of care that offers customers the opportunity to experience one-to-one support at home over a shorter period of time and sometimes at very short notice.
No matter how brilliant they might be, your carer is going to need a break at some point. Whether you’ve got a professional carer or are being looked after by a friend or family member, we all need some time away from each other at some point. Respite care exists to allow your carer to experience that all-important change of scenery and gives you the opportunity to have a new friendly face helping you out for however long you require.
People also opt for respite care when they unexpectedly find themselves needing additional support at short notice. Perhaps you’ve been discharged from the hospital earlier than anticipated, or have experienced a medical setback that’s left you unable to undertake your normal chores and routines. Whatever your reason for needing respite care, our Hove care team will do their utmost to have a wonderful Helping Hands carer in your home within 24 hours of your initial phone call – meaning you won’t need to worry about being left isolated or unsupported.
We appreciate that your care needs will be unique to your condition and circumstances, and that you might be accustomed to your normal carer doing things in a particular way around your home. That’s why we’ll always make sure we fully understand the way you like your care to look, and will design you a respite care plan that is perfectly suited to your specific wishes and requirements.
Helping Hands have been one of the UK’s leading care providers for over 30 years, and we’ve earned that reputation largely thanks to our exceptional carers. We’re extremely proud of how much our customers love our carers – they truly are our most valuable asset, and our Hove care team are no exception. All of our carers have been selectively recruited for their empathetic, personable approach to their roles, and have undergone a strict set of background checks before joining us.
We provide every new carer with our award-winning training programme, which takes place in-house and covers modules such as moving and lifting, first aid, dementia care, health and safety and so much more. And, for your added reassurance, our respite care – along with all of our other care services – is fully regulated and monitored by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can have total confidence in our commitment to excellence.
