With over 30 years’ experience in helping our customers to live more independently, confidently and comfortably in their own homes, it’s safe to say that Helping Hands truly are industry leaders when it comes to home care. One of the many care services that we offer is respite care, which gives you the opportunity to receive care from home at short notice when you need it most. Whether you need help with the housework, personal care, someone to accompany you to the shops or anything else, our wonderful Portsmouth care team are always happy to support your home care needs.
Respite care is short-term care that can be used when you find yourself unexpectedly requiring additional support at short notice. Often people need respite care when their normal carer is taking a well-earned break and hasn’t been able to arrange any cover. Sometimes personal circumstances can bring about the need for extra care – perhaps you or your loved one have experienced a fall or a medical setback, and aren’t able to perform the chores and routines around the home that you normally would. Whatever your reason for needing respite care, our Portsmouth care team will normally be able to get one of our superb carers to your home within 24 hours of your initial phone call, meaning you can get on with living life as normally as possible.
When you choose respite care from our Portsmouth branch, you’ll be partnering with a care provider who put your needs and preferences at the centre of your support plan. We know that you’ll like things to be done in a certain way around your home, and that you’ll have specific care requirements that are unique to your condition or circumstances. That’s why we’ll always take the time to make sure you get a holistic, flexible package of care that will never leave you feeling isolated or unsupported.
We’re extremely proud of our brilliant team of Portsmouth carers – they really are our most valuable asset, and they go above and beyond every single day to make sure our customers get the brilliant care that they deserve. All of our carers have been handpicked for their kind, empathetic personalities, as we believe these are essential qualities for someone in a care-based role. When they start with us, every carer is enrolled in our award-winning training programme which equips them with the necessary skillset and knowledge to provide a wide range of care to people with varying support needs. We also make sure all of our care provision is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you know your support will always be of the very highest standard.
