Leicester respite support from Helping Hands
Helping Hands have been supporting people to receive care in their own homes for more than 30 years, so we really can be considered the home care experts. If you need respite care for a short period of cover, our carers can visit you from 30 minutes at a time, call several times a day, throughout the night or offer live-in care, so we really can offer you the full range of home care services. Respite care is often needed to give your regular carer a break or perhaps when things turn out unexpectedly, but thanks to your personalised support plan and bespoke package of care, your needs will be covered expertly. Talk to our helpful team in Leicester today to discover how we could be supporting you or your loved ones in your own home.Request a callback Email us
Why respite care is a good option for short-term support
Respite care at home means you’ll be supported by expert carers who will cover every task you need undertaking, such as personal care, mobility support, medication administration or housework. Whether you have a carer visiting you at regular pre-planned times or a carer living in your home with you, the care given will be of the highest possible standard, as we pride ourselves on only selecting the most compassionate and professional people to become Helping Hands carers. Staying in your own home to be cared for rather than having to uproot and relocate to a residential home, even temporarily, will ensure a continuity of care for you and also reduce disruption to your routines. Therefore, both your physical and emotional wellbeing will be supported by receiving care in your own home from the friendly Leicester team.
Respite care services tailored to you
Continuity of care is very important if your carer has to go away temporarily or you’re being discharged from hospital. Having a carer support you in your own home is highly beneficial to your routines and preferences. The benefits of one-to-one care mean that you get up and go to bed when you want and have your meals when you say, keeping you in complete control of your care experience.
Leicester post-discharge support
If you’re being discharged from hospital and you are concerned that you won’t be able to manage on your own, after hospital care can see a carer support you in your own home, for as long as you need until you’re back on your feet again.
Emergency care across Leicester
Arranging care in an emergency can be daunting for family members, especially if they live quite far away, and it can be a nerve-wracking time trying to decide what to do for the best. Should they put their lives on hold and try to support you themselves, or better still, arrange some respite care that will be flexible to your ongoing needs? Even if you have more complex care needs our nurse-led care supported by our team of clinical nurses means that we can cater for every aspect of your care journey, so talk to the team in Leicester for more information about your care options.
