Why choose our Oldham respite care team?

Helping Hands has been a leader in the home care industry for over 30 years, and we know that as rewarding as it is to care for a loved one, it’s also great to take a holiday or enjoy some downtime occasionally. Our carers will ensure that continuity of care is being delivered where it matters, so you can return feeling refreshed. What matters is your peace of mind and knowing that your loved one is being well looked after.


Oldham respite support from Helping Hands

Life doesn’t always go according to plan, but, luckily, there’s respite care to step in and help when your usual caregiver is unavailable, or simply needs to take a well-deserved break. Because Helping Hands tailors the level of care you receive to your unique situation, you have the freedom to opt for care for several days right up to full-time live-in care for more complex care needs.

When to choose respite care

Respite care is ideal for any situation where care needs are not ongoing. You may need to take a break from caring and arrange for someone to fill in for you with ordinary care tasks that you’d normally do for a loved one. Or you can seek respite care if you yourself are going on holiday and would like the extra assistance while away.

Sometimes the unexpected does happen – but you needn’t worry about an emergency, accident or family illness, because our Oldham care team will ensure there is someone there looking after your loved one while you tend to urgent matters. We can be set up and ready to fill in for you within 24 hours’ notice. Unexpected events aside, it’s important to take regular breaks from caring simply to recharge your own batteries and give yourself a break.

Our respite carers are also there to provide as-needed support should you be unwell or if you’ve returned from a hospital stay or procedure, and just need a little TLC as you get back on your feet. Respite care is also ideal for those situations where you occasionally need an extra pair of hands; for example, we can be there during special events like weddings or graduations to help with medications, mobility, or getting to your location safely.

We can be there for several days or a few weeks, supporting you or your loved ones with housework, personal care, errands, meals, medication, or just companionship during a difficult time.
