Taunton respite support from Helping Hands

Respite care can be for a short period of cover, such as a few days, or perhaps for a couple of weeks where necessary. Our visiting carers can visit from 30 minutes at a time, call several times a day, or offer around the clock live-in care, and your fully bespoke package of care will be personalised to you and your needs. Talk to our helpful team in Taunton today to find out more about how we could be supporting you or your loved ones.

Why respite care is a good option for short-term support

Being supported by expert carers in your own home means every task you need completing will be taken care of, including personal care, mobility support, meal preparation, medication administration or housework. Your flexible package of care will adapt with you, so if your needs change, so will your care. Staying at home to receive care can be beneficial for both your physical and mental health as you’re surrounded by things that are important to you, in the place you love most. Therefore, if you’d like to stay in your home while receiving temporary care rather than moving into a residential home, talk to our friendly Taunton home care team today.

Respite care services tailored to you

You need to know that you’ll receive continuity of care once you’re discharged from hospital or while your regular carer is away, and with the support of your carers and management team in Taunton, who will design your own support plan for you, this can happen with the least amount of disruption. Your routines will be followed at all times, meaning you get up and go to bed when you want and have your meals to suit you, not when a carer has a brief window of time to fit it in.

Post-discharge support

To make sure your recovery goes smoothly, respite care when you’re discharged from hospital can make all the difference to you getting back on your feet. If you or your family are concerned that you won’t be able to manage, respite care is an ideal solution and ensures your continuity of care until you’re able to manage by yourself again.

Emergency care

If you need care in an emergency, we can have someone in place the same day you’re discharged, within 24 hours, meaning your needs will be taken care of from the minute you arrive home. Whether you decide on live-in care or a visiting carer, we can support you fully and our nurse-led care supported by our team of clinical nurses, means that we can cater for anyone, regardless of their stage of life.
