What is respite care?
Respite care is an emergency care option, generally used for a short period of time, that allows you to receive care at short notice in instances where you find yourself unexpectedly requiring it. Rather than being left to fend for yourself, respite care gives you the option of having one of our brilliant carers come to your home and support you in any way you might require – from preparing meals and doing the vacuuming, to helping you attend appointments and assisting with medication.
Peterborough respite support from Helping Hands
At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing people with expert, compassionate respite care since 1989. In that time, we’ve helped thousands of customers across England and Wales to remain in the homes that they love and enjoy their independence through our person-centred, transformative respite care at home. When you choose respite care from our Peterborough carers, you’ll be partnering with a care team who have the experience and the expertise to make sure you receive the same type and level of support that you’d expect from your normal carer.
When to choose respite care
Respite care is an ideal option for those times when you or your loved one unexpectedly find yourself requiring additional care at short notice. Being left without the day-to-day support you require can be a worrying, stressful experience, particularly if you’re recovering from an accident or from surgery. At Helping Hands, we’re able to provide you with expert, empathetic respite care, often within 24 hours of your initial call, meaning you won’t have to worry about whether the housework will get done or who will support you in your daily routines and activities.
Respite care services tailored to you
When you opt for respite care from Helping Hands, you’ll be partnering with an experienced care provider who have been helping people to remain comfortable and confident in their own homes for over 30 years. In that time, we’ve learned how to create care plans that are fully tailored to each customer’s specific needs. We know that you’ll like things done in a certain way around your home, and that you’ll have preferences about things like meals and bedtimes, so we’ll always make sure you’re at the centre of every aspect of your care.
Qualified respite carers in Peterborough
At Helping Hands Peterborough, we’re very proud of our brilliant carers – they truly do go above and beyond to make sure our customers always receive the exceptional standards of care that they’ve come to expect from Helping Hands. We’re very selective about the type of person we recruit to become a Helping Hands carer – we’ll always make sure they display a compassionate, dedicated approach to their role, as well as performing extensive background checks to make sure they’re the sort of person we’d be happy to send to your home. All of our carers receive our award-winning training when they join, as well as regular refresher training to keep them up to date with the latest industry standards and best practices.
