Luton respite support from Helping Hands
Caring for another person, while rewarding, can be exhausting, so it’s important that your carer gets to take regular breaks whenever they need to. Whether you’re supported by a professional carer or a family member they will still need an opportunity to step away from their caregiving duties and have a chance to refresh themselves and relax for a while, before returning to their commitments with a renewed sense of motivation. Our dedicated local Luton care will be able to support you with your respite care needs and ensure that one of our amazing carers comes to your home on either a visiting or live-in basis, whatever suits you best.
What is respite care?
Respite care is a short-term package of care, usually provided by a different person to your regular care. This is so that your usual carer can take a break from their duties and you also get to experience how things are with someone different taking care of you. Traditionally, respite care was provided in day centres, hospitals or care homes, but these days many more people prefer to stay in their own homes for respite care, surrounded by familiar memories and with people and pets they love nearby. Sometimes, emergency care can be needed due to carer sickness or an unexpected discharge from hospital for instance, but in those stressful circumstances Helping Hands can have a carer to you within hours, providing reassurance for both you and your loved ones.
When to choose respite care
When your carer is in need of a well-earned break it’s important that they get to take it, so that they remain in peak physical and emotional health and get a chance to rest, relax and be refreshed. It’s also important that you are happy with the arrangements made in their absence, after all it’s you who’s going to be cared for by someone different. It’s very important that you’re satisfied with whoever comes to care for you and that everything fits in with your current care routines, whether that care is delivered on a visiting care, or around the clock live-in care basis.
