Swansea respite support from Helping Hands
Respite care can be a helpful interim measure when your regular carer is not available, or if you’re recovering at home from an accident or hospital stay. Relocating, albeit temporarily, to residential care is not everyone’s preference, so respite care can keep you or your loved one at home where they’re happiest. This ensures your preferences and routines will be respected and you’ll receive one-to-one care, thanks to your personalised support plan that will detail every aspect of how you like things done. Consequently, the way you like your care delivered will continue seamlessly until your regular carer returns or you’re able to manage on your own again.

Why respite care is a good option for short-term support
Staying at home to receive care can be hugely beneficial to your physical and emotional wellbeing. This is because being in familiar surroundings, with precious memories and mementoes everywhere can reduce anxiety and help you to feel more relaxed. Additionally, if your carer gets a chance to take some time off it means that they will come back refreshed and energised which you will both benefit from.
Respite care services tailored to you
Your care package will be personally designed for you to ensure that your routines and preferences are always respected and prioritised. Your carer will be available on a visiting basis, which means they will call at regular, pre-arranged times to carry out your care, or alternatively, they can live-in your home with you, providing around the clock companionship, as well as the same high standards of care. While in your home they will be able to support you with every task to make your day-to-day life more comfortable, including medication administration, meal preparation, mobility support, personal care, and housework. Equally, if you enjoy going outside, your carer will be able to support you out of the house too.
When you’re coming out of hospital, you and your loved ones need to know that your care will continue once you return home. Having a respite carer from Helping Hands ensures that you’ll be professionally looked after until you’re back on your feet. Your carer will be with you for as long as you need to see you fully recovered and if you eventually decide that you’d appreciate ongoing care then it will be arranged by our Swansea team to ensure your continuation of care.
If you have a regular carer but they need to get home in an emergency, we can ensure that a replacement carer is in your home within 24 hours. Equally, if you’re being discharged from hospital at short notice or need care in place quickly for another reason, the Swansea team will be able to arrange it for you. Your care will continue uninterrupted which is also reassuring for loved ones, as well as making sure you have the care experience that you deserve.
