Respite care can be necessary when you are recovering from an illness or accident, your carer needs to take a break, or your family want to go on holiday. Your loved ones especially will want to know that you’re going to be ably looked after while they can’t be around so choosing respite care from Helping Hands’ Newark care team will ensure that you’ll receive care that goes above and beyond the standards of other care companies. We’ve been delivering care in our customers’ own homes since we were founded in 1989, and because we’re established across the whole of England and Wales you can be confident that we’re experts in what we do.
Respite care is usually short-term support so that your regular carer can take a break, or so that you can have temporary care after an accident or illness. If you are recuperating at home after being in hospital or because you had a fall, you may require some extra help to get you back on your feet and able to manage alone again. Respite care can support you with a variety of everyday tasks such as personal care (which includes bathing, showering and hair washing), mobility (for instance getting in and out of bed), preparing your meals, housework, laundry, and helping you to access the community. Even in an emergency we can support you – making sure a carer is in your home within 24 hours.
You may need respite care because you want to receive the same high levels of support you’ve been having at home for quite some time, yet your carer needs to take a well-earned break. Alternatively, you may have been told that you’re being discharged from hospital unexpectedly and consequently you’d like some extra support while you’re recovering back to full health. Regardless of why you need respite care, you and your loved ones need to be confident that whoever you’re choosing to care for you will be able to deliver the levels of excellence that they promise, and that’s why you can trust Helping Hands.
When you choose Helping Hands to provide your respite care you can be confident that you’re in the hands of professionals and experts, and because we design your bespoke package of care around your needs, we can support with mild or complex care requirements. We’ll also devise a personalised support plan with your routines detailed inside, meaning your carers will always know exactly how you want your daily life to progress. Our compassionate and professional carers are the heart of our business and because we’ve been caring for people in their own homes since we began over 30 years ago, you’ll be in the best hands you could be with us.
Every one of our carers goes through comprehensive training before they ever go into their customers’ homes, as well as having their backgrounds thoroughly checked and being screened through the Disclosure and Barring Service. This is because we value our customers’ wellbeing just as much as our carers’ and want to ensure that you remain as safe as possible, and one way we can do that is by checking that only people who should be entering your home are doing so. We are very particular about who we employ as carers, making sure the people we select have natural caring and compassionate qualities, which we know will translate into how they care for you. We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales which means that you and your loved ones can be confident in our promise to never compromise on the quality of care that we deliver.
