What is respite care?
Respite care is short-term care for when your primary carer is unavailable. They may have a family emergency to attend to or need to take a well-deserved break from their duties of being a full-time carer. Or you may need additional support following an operation, illness or accident. At Helping Hands, we can offer you respite care at home without you having to move into a residential care home – our carers will come to you.

Qualified respite carers in Maidenhead
Being a carer is a very rewarding job and our Maidenhead care team really loves what they do. We carefully select our carers and make sure they are the right person for you and us. All our carers go through an intensive training programme which covers modules including safeguarding, first aid and manual handling. Our trainers are experts in the field, so they truly know what qualities are needed to make the best carer. So, you can fully rely on us.
Your safety is also important to us, which is why all our carers go through a background check. We are also fully regulated and monitored by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you know you’ll be receiving the best care and support you deserve.
