At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing our customers with transformative, empathetic home care for over 30 years, so it’s safe to say we’ve got the experience and expertise to deliver truly exceptional care services. One of the areas of care in which we specialise is respite care, which offers our customers the opportunity to receive support on a short-term basis at the times when they need it most.
Respite care is ideal for anyone who is currently being cared for by a family member or friend, as it gives the caregiver the opportunity to enjoy a well-deserved break and also offers both parties the chance to experience some healthy time away from one another. At Helping Hands, our respite carers can continue providing you with the same compassionate care you normally receive, as well as accompanying you on days out or even going on holiday with you. We’re generally able to have one of our brilliant carers in your home within 24 hours your initial phone call, meaning you won’t have to worry about being left unsupported or isolated.
Our Orpington care team will always make sure your respite care package is completely tailored to your specific needs and wishes, because we know you’ll have your own particular needs and preferences that are unique to your circumstances. Whether you’re living with a complex medical condition that requires specialist care, or would simply benefit from having a few hours of extra help around the home each week, we’ll be able to provide you with the perfect type and level of care. Our carers can help you out in your home in whatever way you need – from helping with the laundry and preparing your favourite meals, to accompanying you to appointments and providing personal care.
Our respite carers in Orpington are all highly trained and fully equipped to provide you or your loved one with exceptional, high quality respite care. All of our carers have been specifically recruited for their compassionate, personable approach to their roles, and undergo extensive background checks before starting with us so that we can be certain they’re the type of person you’d be happy to have in your home. Every new carer will receive our award-winning training when they start with us, which includes modules such as moving and handling, equality and diversity, dementia care, first aid and so much more. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you know your support will only ever be of the very highest standard.
