Respite care is a type of care that’s taken on a short-term basis, often as a result of an emergency or an unexpected change of circumstances.

At Helping Hands, we’ve been helping people to remain independent and secure in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of their own homes since 1989. When you choose respite care from our Milton Keynes home care team, you’ll be partnering with an industry-leading care provider who have the expertise and experience to help you enjoy the best possible quality of life while ensuring your normal routines, chores and tasks are being completed to the usual high standards you’d expect from your regular carer. Our carers always prioritise your wellbeing, so we’ll make sure you’re able to spend more time looking after yourself – whether that’s doing your favourite activities and hobbies, or focusing on making a recovery from an accident or surgery.
Sometimes, it’s not possible to anticipate when you might require additional care cover. It might be that your normal carer is taking a well-earned holiday, or is unexpectedly taken sick for an extended period of time. Or perhaps you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than you were initially meant to be, and your carer is fully booked for the next few days. Whatever your reasons for requiring care at short notice, your Helping Hands team in Milton Keynes are almost always able to provide you with one of our brilliant, compassionate carers within 24 hours of your initial phone all, meaning you won’t need to worry about who’s going to perform all the hard work that your regular carer would normally undertake.
It’s not always easy to find a good care provider, especially when you desperately need one at short notice. You want to make sure that the care you receive will be of the same high standard as your normal carer, and naturally, you’ll have a preference about the way you like certain things to be done around your home. With respite care from Helping Hands, your respite care plan will be fully tailored to your particular circumstances and condition, ensuring you’re at the centre of every decision. Our carers will always respect your preferences and will take the time to understand your specific needs so that they’re perfectly placed to provide you with a package of care that completely suits you.
