At Helping Hands, we’ve got over 30 years’ experience in helping people across England and Wales to remain in the homes that they love through our transformative, person-centred home care. Our care services give our customers the quality of life they deserve by allowing them to retain their independence and security without having to stress about who’s going to look after them and their home. One of the areas of care in which we specialise is respite care, which offers short-term support to people when they most need it.
It isn’t always possible to predict when you might need respite care. Perhaps your regular carer is experiencing burn-out and would benefit from taking a couple of weeks to rest and recuperate, or maybe you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than anticipated and need an extra pair of hands to help out around the house. At Helping Hands, our wonderful respite carers often accompany customers on holidays or day trips, opening up a whole world of possibilities. Whatever your reasons for needing respite care, our New Milton care team will normally be able to provide you with one of our fantastic carers within 24 hours of your initial phone call, meaning you won’t have to worry about being left isolated or unsupported.
If you’re concerned about whether your respite carer will give you the type of care you’re used to, or aren’t sure they’ll be able to meet all your care needs, you can have total peace of mind. At Helping Hands, all of our carers are highly trained and equipped to care for people with a wide range of needs and conditions – both straightforward and complex. Your respite care plan will be fully tailored to your specific requirements and wishes, and can be adapted accordingly if your situation changes, meaning you’ll always be getting exactly the type and level of support that you require.
Our New Milton care branch comprises a team of highly trained carers who have all been specifically recruited for their family values and their empathetic, dedicated approach to their roles. At Helping Hands, we know that it takes a pretty wonderful type of person to be a great carer, which is why we’re so specific about the type of people we employ. Not only do we look at whether they’ve got the perfect character and attitude, we also run extensive background checks on every applicant. Then, when they start with us, all new carers undertake our award-winning training, which we’ve been delivering in-house for over 30 years. This gives them all the preparation they need to provide our customers with our fully regulated care services, which are all monitored by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
