Plymouth respite support from Helping Hands

If your regular carer needs a break, your family members are going on holiday or you’re being discharged from hospital, you may be concerned about continuity of care if another carer has to take over. Some people move to a residential home, albeit temporarily, but perhaps you would rather remain in the place you love most? Helping Hands can support you with respite care at home from as little as 30 minutes at a time to as long as you need. Our compassionate carers from our home care Plymouth team can come to you for several visits through the day, overnight, or even move into your home with you and provide around the clock live-in care. Whatever your requirements are we can help, so contact our friendly team in Plymouth to learn more about your options today.

Why respite care is a good option for short-term support

Remaining at home to receive respite care can be a really positive step, as you remain surrounded by your own things and in the place you love most. This can have also have a positive impact on your mental health and help to ensure that you recover in the shortest amount of time possible.  Our helpful carers can support you with every aspect of your needs including, mobility support, personal care, medication administration, meal preparation, housework and much more.

Respite care services tailored to you

When your regular carer needs some time off or perhaps you’re being discharged from hospital, you and your loved ones need to know that your carer will continue in the same manner as it did before and that there will be no interruptions to you being looked after. Having care from our personal care Plymouth team means that everything will be arranged when you need it and your own personalised support plan will ensure your routines are respected at all times.

Plymouth post-discharge support

When you’re in hospital, being discharged is usually something to look forward to, however if you’re worried about how you’re going to cope at home it can be a tense time. Fortunately, after hospital care from Helping Hands means that one of our carers can support you from the moment you arrive home until you’re back on your feet again, and with our flexible care packages, if your needs change then so will your care.
