When you choose respite care from Helping Hands’ dedicated team in Nuneaton, you are choosing support from the UK’s foremost homecare provider, with over 30 years of experience caring for people in their own homes. Respite care can be needed for a variety of reasons; for instance, if your carer needs to take a break, they’re suddenly taken ill or you need support to get back on your feet after an illness or hospital stay. Regardless of why you need us though, you’ll be glad you got in touch, as with our amazing carers looking after you you’ll soon be living your best quality of life at home.
Respite care is temporary support given when a person cannot be cared for by their regular carer, or if they need care when they don’t routinely receive it. Respite care is usually for a short duration, such as a few days or a couple of weeks, and used to be delivered in a location away from a person’s usual residence, such as a care home or residential facility, however more and more people these days choose to remain in their own home for respite care and avoid the upheaval of having to leave. We offer respite care on both a visiting care and live-in care basis so you can be sure that we’ll design a package of care that is totally suited to your needs.
Caring for someone else is very rewarding but can also be extremely tiring, which is why it’s so important that you give your carer regular breaks. By taking some time away from their caregiving duties the person will be able to recharge their energy and renew their motivation for caring for you, meaning they’ll return relaxed and ready to support you with every aspect of your daily routine. Whether you need respite care for a few days or a matter of weeks, our Nuneaton care team will look after you from your very first phone call to us. Even if you need us at short notice or in an emergency we can help, with a carer being able to support you within 24 hours of you getting in touch.
Remaining in your own home for respite care means you get to stay in comforting surroundings that make you feel safe. Being cared for at home means you get the support you need in the place you love without compromise. You call the shots when you remain at home – you decide when you get up, go to bed and when you eat your meals; you don’t have to fit around a care home’s schedule with our bespoke packages of homecare.
We know our carers are amazing, and we know you feel the same. We only have to read the wonderful reviews we receive from you and your loved ones about the difference our carers have made to your life and it makes us love what we do even more. We’re particular about who joins us as a carer though and insist upon natural qualities of compassion and empathy – after all, we can train a person on the practical skills needed but we can’t teach them to care – that has to come from the heart. We build on their existing skills and experience to ensure that they can care for you at home from the first moment they meet you, and thanks to our managers and support staff you’ll discover you won’t find such dedication to your care anywhere else across England and Wales. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, meaning that we’ll always maintain our consistently high standards and never let them slip, which is why you and your family can always rely on us.
