Lincoln respite support from Helping Hands
Respite care is usually temporary care for a week or two, due to the need for your regular carer to take a break, being discharged from hospital and needing help to get back on your feet, or if your family are going away on holiday. Receiving support from our dedicated Lincoln care team will see you having compassionate carers coming to you at home and ensuring all of your care is carried out expertly, thanks to our more than 30 years of caring for our customers at home.
What is respite care?
Respite care exists so that someone who needs support in the short-term can have extra help in their own home. Respite traditionally makes someone think they’d have to relocate to a residential home without realising that care at home is even an option, yet with Helping Hands you can have all the help you need without leaving the home you love.
When to choose respite care
Respite care is necessary when your usual caregiver is not going to be available, or when you don’t normally have care and wish to have extra support temporarily. You may be recovering from an illness or an accident and would appreciate some extra help to get you back on your feet, or just until you’re able to manage everyday tasks again. If you do have a regular carer you will understand how important it is that they get to have regular breaks, to ensure that they can then return to you refreshed, relaxed and ready to care for your every need.
Respite care services tailored to you
Our respite care is tailored exactly to your needs and your bespoke package of care will ensure you get to live your very best life, every single day. Our carers can support you on either a visiting care or live-in care basis, meaning they’ll come to you for regular calls of varying duration at pre-arranged times of the day or even live in your house with you so that you get around the clock support and companionship. Our carers can help with every aspect of your daily care, including personal care, medication, meal preparation, mobility, housework, laundry and accessing the local community.
Qualified respite carers in Lincoln
Our carers represent everything that is the best about our business, spending their time looking after our customers, promoting their independence, preserving their dignity and therefore upholding the ethos that we have lived by since we were founded in 1989. Our carers are all carefully selected to join us because we want to ensure that they have natural empathy and compassion and will therefore always put our customers’ wellbeing first. We’ll train our carers well and equip them with all the skills they need to effectively care for everyone, however we also know that we can’t train on the most crucial attribute – caring naturally. We ensure we conduct thorough background checks and DBS screening so that you and your loved ones can be confident about who is coming into your home, and we’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales to reassure you of our consistently high standards of care.
