When you need help and support on a temporary basis, respite care at home from Helping Hands’ dedicated home care Lichfield team can be a valuable solution to your care needs. Respite care can be delivered on a visiting or live-in basis, by professional carers who will do everything they can to ensure you get to live the life you want at home, by supporting your independence and promoting your dignity at all times.
Respite care is a short-term package of care, delivered by a different carer than usual so that your regular carer gets to take a well-earned break. You may also need short-term respite care to get you back on your feet after a hospital stay or a fall at home, even though you may not usually require care and live totally independently. Having some extra help just to get you back to full strength will benefit your physical and emotional well-being and see that you’re soon back to your best.
You may require respite care to help you in the short-term, after a period of illness, injury or a hospital discharge, or you may usually have care from family members who are desperate for a holiday. They may want to take you with them but feel they won’t get a chance to relax without having some extra support in place, so taking a respite carer on the trip too makes perfect sense for all of you. We can also offer longer-term respite care or even care in an emergency, when time may be critical, and in those circumstances we can usually have a carer in place in your home within 24 hours.
We tailor your support package to suit your needs and routines exactly, meaning that you get a totally bespoke care experience from carers who will go above and beyond to ensure that you live your life as independently as possible. By offering respite care on both a visiting care and live in care basis, we have the flexibility to mould around your care needs and ensure that you will always receive the highest levels of care possible.
You’ll have a personalised support plan in your home that will complement your care, and will make sure that everyone who cares for you knows just how you like things done. Our carers can undertake every aspect of your support plan, including your housework, medication, meal preparation, personal care, mobility support, and helping you to access the community if it’s something you like to do.
Our carers are the real heart of our business at Helping Hands, which is how we can be sure that you’ll always receive exemplary levels of care from everyone who comes to your home.
We can be so confident in our carers because we only employ people who share our ethos for delivering the best care possible in our customers’ homes, as well as having natural qualities of compassion and empathy in droves.
We believe that our training helps enormously too, making sure that even experienced carers have a consistent Helping Hands experience and that all of our customers will consequently experience the same high standards of care delivery. Because we’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales you and your loved ones will know that we will always deliver the superb standards that we promise to.
