At Helping Hands, we’ve been helping people to live more confidently, independently and comfortably in the secure and familiar environment of their own home since 1989. In that time, it’s safe to say we’ve become experts in allowing people to enjoy the best possible quality of life through our holistic, person-centred home care. One of the many home care services that we offer is respite care, which provides you with the opportunity to have a Helping Hands carer within your home when you find yourself needing a bit of extra help at short notice.
Respite care is short-term care that is often used in times when people unexpectedly find themselves needing additional support at home. It might be that you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than anticipated, or your regular carer has made themselves unavailable and hasn’t been able to arrange cover. Whatever your reason for needing respite care, our home care Lewes team will generally be able to provide you with one of our superb, highly-trained carers within 24 hours of your initial phone call, meaning you won’t ever be left feeling unsupported or isolated.
When you choose Helping Hands for respite care, you’ll be partnering with a care provider who genuinely cares about prioritising your wellbeing and ensuring you receive a care plan that is perfectly suited to your condition and circumstances. We know that you’ll like things to be done in a certain way around your home, and perhaps you’re used to the way your normal carer does things and would like that to be replicated. Our care experts will always take the time to understand your needs and preferences and will design you a package of care that gives you the type and level of support you require, allowing you to spend more time doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.
We’re extremely proud of our wonderful carers in Lewes – they truly go above and beyond every single day to ensure our customers continually receive the exceptional care that they’re accustomed to getting from Helping Hands. All of our carers have been selectively recruited for their personable, empathetic approach to their roles, and undergo extensive background checks before joining Helping Hands to ensure they’re going to be a perfect fit for us and for you. Then, when they start with us, every carer receives our award-winning training and will continue to participate in regular refresher courses which keep them up to date with the latest industry standards and best practices. Plus, for your added peace of mind, all of our care services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
