Why respite care is a good option for short-term support
Receiving respite care at home is highly beneficial, as it means you can stay in the place you love, surrounded by the people and objects that mean the most to you. Respite care usually conjures up an image of having to relocate to a care home, even temporarily, but there really is another option. Whether you’re normally supported by family members or perhaps another caregiver they’ll still need a break from time to time, but with respite care from Helping Hands you will be still be cared for to the same high standards as if your regular caregiver had never left.
Our short-term care cover could be for any of the following instances:
- Hospital discharge – to help you get back on your feet
- Emergencies – in the case of a short notice hospital discharge or perhaps your regular carer needs time off in a hurry
- Short breaks – your family might like you to go on holiday with them, or perhaps you’d prefer to go somewhere on your own with extra support
- One-off occasions – perhaps a family celebration, such as a wedding
Respite care services tailored to you
We’ll provide a personalised support package that will ensure a seamless continuity of care, covering every aspect of yours or your loved one’s needs, including medication administration, mobility support, housework & laundry, meal preparation, personal care and more.
Post-discharge support in Liverpool
Being discharged from hospital can be nerve-wracking, especially if you live alone, so by arranging to have some respite care waiting for you you’ll be supported until you’re back on your feet. Your package of after care will be flexible to your ongoing needs, whether you need support at home for days or weeks, and if you eventually decide you’d like to continue receiving care, the helpful team in Liverpool will be able to arrange that too.
Liverpool Emergency Care
Family will often try to step in when emergency care is needed yet that can be difficult as they’ll have their own lives to organise, plus they may live some distance away. Regardless of your care needs, you’ll benefit from having a professional carer look after you at home until you’re more able to manage or until your regular caregiver is able to return, which will also be reassuring for family members and loved ones.
