Preston respite support from Helping Hands
Whether you need respite care often or infrequently, to care for you when your family are away for a few days or your carer needs a break, we can offer care and support in your home from just 30 minutes a week, up to full-time live-in. You may need respite care because you’re recovering from an accident or illness, or because you have a long-term health condition, but whatever the circumstances, we offer outstanding, person-centred care in our customers’ own homes and have done for over 30 years. We have almost 150 branches across the whole of England and Wales, and each of them offers outstanding care, and our Preston care team are no exception.
What is respite care?
Respite care can be necessary when you need temporary, short-term care to enable your regular carer to take a well-earned holiday, or if you need some support at home to get you back on your feet. Our fully managed care service will ensure that you always remain at the centre of your care journey and our focus will always be on safeguarding your wellbeing at home.
When to choose respite care
Perhaps you are normally cared for by a family member or you may already have a professional carer, but they still need to take regular time off to ensure they are always in the best physical and emotional health to support you properly. By taking a regular break it won’t just keep your carer fresh, but it will give you a change too, which means you’ll be all the happier to see them when they return. Our visiting care and live-in-care services mean your carers will always be able to help you with what you need, whether that’s personal care, medication support, housework, meal preparation or so much more.
Respite care services tailored to you
When we care for you, we design you a bespoke package of support that will be as flexible as you need it to be. If your needs change, so will your care, meaning a personalised service that will always match your needs. Your carers will always know how best to support you as you’ll have a support plan tailored to you that accompanies your care, delivered by compassionate and empathetic carers who will go above and beyond to ensure your wellbeing.

Our carers are outstanding, and we think they’re the heart of our business, which is why we look after them as well as they look after our customers. When they first join us, our carers are trained well, and we always ensure they have opportunities to update their skills and progress in their career when they want to. We also want to make sure you’re safe in our hands, which is why we carefully check all of our carers’ backgrounds and DBS screen them before they can come into your home. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, meaning that you and your loved ones can be confident in our consistent levels of care.
