Newcastle respite support from Helping Hands
Respite care conjures up images of moving to a residential home, albeit temporarily, but why uproot yourself or a loved one when you could receive the care you need in your own home?
At Helping Hands we’ve been supporting people to receive care in their own homes for more than 30 years, so we really are the home care specialists. Respite care delivered by one of our compassionate carers will include a personalised support plan that will detail exactly how you like your routine undertaken, so you are always at the centre of your care journey. Why not chat with our friendly and knowledgeable Newcastle team to discover how we could be supporting you or your loved ones in your own home today.
Why respite care is a good option for short-term support
Having respite care from Helping Hands means you’ll be supported by expert carers and managers who really know care and take pride in delivering it to the highest standards. Our carers can support every aspect of your care needs, including medication administration, mobility support, meal preparation, personal care, housework and much more. Our flexible care packages are easily updated if your needs change, so whether it’s visiting care during the day or night, or around the clock live-in care, you can be sure that we will support you fully and deliver the highest standards of care possible.
Respite care services tailored to you
We can offer two types of respite care; visiting, which means you will have a carer come at pre-arranged times of the day or night and support you accordingly, or live-in, where your carer actually resides in your home with you. This means that you don’t just get your care needs met, you get around the clock companionship too. Whether you’re being discharged from hospital or care is needed in an emergency, you need to know that you’ll receive continuity of care, and the team in Newcastle will arrange everything.
Post-discharge support in Newcastle
If you need someone with you for a short amount of time as an aid to your recovery, then respite care is the answer. A carer can be with you from the day you are discharged and support you for as long as you need, just to make sure your recovery goes smoothly. If you’re being discharged from hospital and you are concerned that you won’t be able to manage, talk to the team in Newcastle to discover how they could be supporting you.
Newcastle emergency care
If you need care in an emergency and your family members don’t live locally to you it can be stressful trying to sort out suitable care provision. However, having respite care from Helping Hands means that a carer will be in your home the same day, whether you’re being discharged at short notice, or your regular carer has had to leave in a hurry. Even if you have higher level needs, our nurse-led care supported by our team of clinical nurses means that we can cater for every aspect of your care.
Why choose our Newcastle respite care team?
Helping Hands have been supporting people across England and Wales to receive care in their own homes since 1989, so you can be confident when we say that we are the home care experts. Our carers are at the heart of our business and we select them carefully; not everyone gets to be a Helping Hands carer. We train our carers carefully when they start with us and we encourage them to develop their skills as their career develops, skills that can then be applied to the care they are giving their customers.
