Respite care may be necessary for a number of reasons; for instance, you may have just been discharged from hospital or your regular carer needs a holiday. Respite care from Helping Hands will be personalised exactly to your requirements and we can offer short-term support of a few days, or longer-term if you need a little more time to get back on your feet again. Perhaps you want to go on holiday with your family but want them to relax too? Care at home is valuable for so many reasons that can help you live your life to the fullest.

Why respite care is a good option for short-term support
You might usually be supported by family members or a professional caregiver, however everyone needs a break from time to time. Even when your regular caregiver isn’t there though, they need to be confident that you will be cared for to the same high standards. This is why being cared for at home is so beneficial, as you get to stay in the place you love, rather than relocating to a care home, even temporarily.
We can arrange cover at short notice, in any of the following circumstances:
- Hospital discharge – to help you get back on your feet
- Emergencies – in the case of a short notice discharge or perhaps your regular carer needs time off in a hurry
- Short breaks – your family might like you to go on holiday with them, or somewhere on your own with extra support
- One-off occasions – perhaps a family celebration, such as a wedding
Respite care services tailored to you
Your carer will be able to undertake all necessary care tasks within your home, including medication administration, mobility support, housework & laundry, meal preparation and personal care. With your personalised support plan tailored exactly to your requirements, your carer will ensure that your routines and preferences are respected at all times.
Post-discharge support in the Solihull area
When you’ve been discharged from hospital you may require a little extra support at home to ensure that you get back on your feet again as quickly as possible. You and your loved ones can be reassured that there will be a continuity of care available to you when you’re back at home. Your carer can come to you either on a visiting basis, with visits from 30 minutes at pre-arranged times of the day, or they can live-in your home with you for the duration of your care. This has the added advantage that you don’t just get care at certain times of the day, your carer is with you around the clock as a constant companion and will be there overnight too.
Solihull emergency care
If your regular carer has had to go home without warning for a family emergency or they’re ill themselves, or it may be that you’re being discharged from hospital at short notice, having professional care at home can be the perfect solution. We can have emergency care in place for you within 24 hours, so talk to the Solihull team about yours or a loved one’s care today.
