Sheffield respite support from Helping Hands
If you are being discharged from hospital or your regular carer needs to take a break, Helping Hands offer one-to-one respite care in your own home from highly trained and expertly skilled carers. Since we were founded in 1989, we have been delivering our family-led values of quality care at home while promoting independence and we still keep these at the heart of everything we do. You might normally be supported by family members or perhaps a different caregiver, but regardless of who cares for you, we will ensure that you receive continuity of care when we take over and that your routines will remain unchanged.

Why respite care is a good option for short-term support
Being able to stay in the place you love, surrounded by everything dear to you can have a highly beneficial effect on your wellbeing. Rather than having to uproot for days or even weeks, your care can be delivered in your home, meaning your routines will continue on a daily basis, just as you like it. You can have care on either a visiting or a live-in basis, meaning that either a carer will come to you at pre-arranged times of the day, or overnight, and carry out your care, or they will live around the clock in your home with you.
If necessary, we can arrange cover within 24 hours for these reasons and more:
- Hospital discharge – to help you get back on your feet
- Emergencies – in case your regular carer needs to go home quickly, or you are discharged earlier than expected
- Short breaks – your family might like you to go on holiday with them, or you may prefer somewhere on your own but with extra support
- One-off occasions – perhaps a family wedding, or other celebration
Respite care services tailored to you
Whether you need care for yourself or you’re organising it for a loved one, you need to know that it will be arranged seamlessly and with the minimum of disruption to your everyday life. Helping Hands’ friendly branch team in Sheffield will take care of everything for you, and your carers will undertake whatever you need doing, including medication administration, mobility support, housework & laundry, meal preparation and personal care.
Sheffield post-discharge support
When you’re about to be discharged from hospital you need to know that there will be help in place if you’re concerned you can’t manage on your own. You may only require some temporary support to help you get back on your feet or perhaps you’re thinking of longer-term care once you’ve recovered. Regardless of what you decide, your package of care will be flexible to your ongoing needs and can be easily updated if necessary.
Emergency care across Sheffield
Care can sometimes be needed in an emergency; in the case of an unexpected hospital discharge for instance, or because your carer has to go home in a hurry. Family might offer to step in temporarily, but they’ve got their own lives to organise, so emergency home care can be a very useful alternative. Most importantly will be a continuity of care, so that your needs are still fully supported during the transition and the team in Sheffield will be able to have support in your home within 24 hours. Therefore, you and your loved ones can be reassured that you’re being cared for professionally and in a timely fashion, with the minimum of disruption to your routine.
