When you need temporary care after being in hospital, because your family are going on holiday or your regular carer needs to take a well-earned break, respite care at home from Helping Hands’ dedicated Wakefield care team is the perfect solution. Saying respite care to people often makes them imagine that they’ll need to go into a care facility and leave the home they love, even just for a short while, however that isn’t necessary. Because we have spent the last 30 years caring for people in their own homes we really are the homecare experts and our compassionate carers can support you with every aspect of your daily routine.
Respite care is short-term support when your regular carer is unavailable or if you need extra help for a period of time, such as recovering after a fall or illness. Respite care can be delivered in either a care home setting or your own home, and many people prefer to be able to remain in the home they love while receiving the care they need, rather than uprooting to somewhere unfamiliar. Helping Hands’ expertise in caring for people at home means that our respite services on either a visiting care or live-in care basis will suit your needs, regardless of the condition you’re living with.
If you or a loved one are in need of some short-term support then respite care from Helping Hands is the answer. You can remain in your own home, being cared for expertly by our local care team in Wakefield and receiving all the support you need on a daily basis. You may already have a dedicated carer who is with you every day or even a family member who conducts your care, but it’s vitally important that they get to take a break regularly so that they can uphold their own health and wellbeing, as well as yours. We can support you with every aspect of your care and get to you quickly if there is an urgent need for care, usually within 24 hours.
Our respite care services are fully tailored to your requirements, and thanks to your bespoke support plan we’ll ensure that your carers always know exactly how you wish to be cared for, regardless of whether you have mild or highly complex needs. Our carers are compassionate and patient and will always ensure that your daily routine runs without a hitch, whether they’re undertaking your personal care, medication, meal preparation, mobility support, housework, helping you to access the community, or something else.
Helping Hands values our carers above all else, because they’re the beating heart of our business. We look after them because we know that means they’ll look after you, and maintaining our customers’ wellbeing is the single most important thing to everyone who works for us. We select our carers carefully, only choosing people who have natural qualities of empathy and compassion, as we know they’ll make the best carers and keep you or your loved ones comfortable at home. We train our carers well to ensure that they are ready for the task of promoting our customers’ independence at home through exemplary care and give them opportunities for development when they want them. Finally, because we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you can have confidence in us to deliver the highest standards of care, every single day.
