What is respite care?

Respite care is a package of short-term care that can be for a few days or a few weeks in duration. You can require respite care when your regular carer has to take some time off, either planned or in an emergency, you’re unexpectedly discharged from hospital, or you require some extra support to get back on your feet after an illness or accident. Perhaps you’ve always lived independently, and you’ve never needed extra support before; respite care can be the temporary solution that means you get to remain in the home you love.

When to choose respite care

If your carer suddenly needs to take time off, whether it’s for a family emergency or because they’ve been taken ill themselves, you and your loved ones will naturally be under pressure to find you some alternative cover, and quickly. It may be that your carer has been planning a break for a while and you’ve been reluctant to think about a time when they wouldn’t be there, but with Helping Hands you have no need to worry. We can have one of our carers in your home within hours of your first call to us, meaning that whether it’s an emergency or not, you’ll never be without the superb care that you require on a day-to-day basis.

Respite care services tailored to you

When you choose respite care from our local Stratford care team you’ll have the option of visiting care – where your carer comes to you at home as often or infrequently as your needs dictate, for varying durations or times of day, or live-in care – where your carer actually resides in your home with you. Live-in care will see you have around the clock support that can give you and your loved ones an extra level of reassurance that you’re never alone at home, and you’ve got care and support with you whenever you need it. Regardless of which service you choose, our compassionate carers can undertake your personal care, medication, mobility support, housework, and so much more.

Qualified respite carers in Stratford

Our carers are always being commended by our customers, their loved ones and our managers, because of the incredible work they do every single day to keep our customers safe and comfortable at home. While we love receiving positive reviews of our carers’ work it’s not a surprise to us, as we take great care in choosing only the most kind and caring people to join Helping Hands. Our local care teams recruit the most caring people in their area and then train them carefully, so that they can be sure they will have all the skills and knowledge to support whatever conditions our customers may be living with. Keeping you safe at home is also our priority though. To achieve this, we thoroughly check all of our carers’ backgrounds and screen them through the DBS, so you can be confident in who is coming into your home. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, meaning you will always be able to have confidence in our consistently high standards of care delivery.
