Kent respite support from Helping Hands

Respite care is a short-term, temporary care option that provides you with a carer in your home when you need extra support. Ideal both in an emergency and when you’re planning ahead for an expected break in your care, respite care offers a convenient, seamless care solution that ensures you or your loved one aren’t left feeling isolated or unsupported. If you do need respite care in an emergency, we’re able to start your care within 24 hours of your initial phone call.

Of course, if you’re considering respite care, you want to be confident that your care provider can offer the type and level of care to which you’re accustomed. Helping Hands have been providing dedicated home care to people across England and Wales since 1989, so it’s safe to say we’re experts when it comes to providing compassionate, effective respite care that truly makes a difference. Our home care in Kent team can support you or your loved one, whatever your needs.

When to choose respite care

Respite care is an ideal care option for those times when you find yourself needing additional support on a short-term basis. Perhaps your normal carer has let you down or is taking a well-earned break and you’re looking for someone to cover for them for a couple of weeks, or maybe you’re undergoing surgery and would benefit from some temporary support at home to aid your recovery. Our wonderful carers in Kent are able to help people with a wide variety of needs – whether you just need a bit of friendly companionship or a full-time live-in carer.

Respite care services tailored to you

At Helping Hands, we know that your care journey is completely unique to you, which is why our wonderful respite carers providing home care in Kent will always provide you with a care plan that is fully tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Your local care manager will visit you or your loved one at home and take the time to fully understand your care needs, as well as the way you like things to be done, so that your transition to respite care can be as smooth and seamless as possible. And, should your circumstances change, we can make appropriate amendments to your support so that you’re still getting the help you require at all times.

Qualified respite carers in Kent

Our Kent carers have all been specifically recruited for their kind, empathetic personalities and their commitment to providing the exceptional care that our customers deserve. Our 30+ years of experience as leaders in the home care industry have given us unparalleled insight into the attributes required for an exceptional carer, and all of our carers undergo enhanced DBS checks to ensure they’re the sort of person you’ll be happy having in your home. Every Helping Hands carer receives our industry-leading training, and will enrol on regular refresher courses so that they’re always up to date with the latest care industry standards. And, for your total peace of mind, our respite care is independently regulated and monitored by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
