Moving to a residential home is unnecessary for respite care, even temporarily. With the carers from Helping Hands’ Kensington & Chelsea home care branch, you can have a continuation of care as if your regular carer had never left. Respite care can be necessary for a number of reasons; perhaps your regular carer needs a break, your family members are going on holiday or you’re being discharged from hospital. We offer two types of respite care. Visiting care sees a carer come to your home for anything from 30 minutes once a week to several visits of varying duration throughout the day or overnight. We also provide around the clock live-in care, when a carer would live in your home with you and provide continuous companionship and your care requirements. Our team of clinical nurses are also available to support with higher level, complex care, so we really can support anyone, regardless of their needs and complexities. Our friendly Kensington & Chelsea team will be happy to talk to you about all your care options.
Our carers can support you with every aspect of your needs including, mobility support, personal care, medication administration, meal preparation, housework and much more. Being cared for at home means that you stay in the place you love most; surrounded by precious memories, as well as all the photographs and mementos of a life well-lived. This can be very beneficial for your mental and physical health as you get to be where you want to be, without the upheaval of moving.
If you’re being discharged from hospital or you want to go on holiday with your family, you may require some extra support temporarily. Perhaps your regular carer is the one going away so you need someone to support you until they return. We’ll ensure that your routines are always followed, which guarantees your care is delivered exactly to your requirements.
If you’ve been in hospital, whether for a few days or even weeks, you need to know that when you return home there will be adequate support until you’re fully recovered. After care from the Kensington & Chelsea team means you can have a carer support you at home for as long as you need, exactly to your preferences, thanks to your personalised support plan.
If your hospital discharge is unexpected or your regular carer has to rush back home for a family emergency, you need to be assured that your care will continue as normal. The team in Kensington & Chelsea will be able to get a carer into your home from the moment you’re due back from hospital or whenever your emergency care needs to start, even if it’s as short notice as 24 hours.
