Walsall respite support from Helping Hands
Respite care can be necessary when your regular carer is in need of some time off, or after a hospital stay, illness or accident to get you back on your feet again. We began delivering care in our customers’ homes in 1989 and since then we’ve been proud to deliver outstanding, person-centred care to thousands of customers across England and Wales. Our amazing carers frequently go above and beyond every single day to make sure that our customers live their very best life possible at home. They work hard to safeguard your wellbeing at all times, and our friendly and dedicated Walsall care team are no exception.
What is respite care?
Respite care is essential to give your carer a valuable break from their caregiving duties, which is vital for their wellbeing, both physically and emotionally. When you have a regular carer you’ll usually receive respite from a different company, and traditionally people expected to have to leave their home and move into a nursing home for their respite care. This isn’t the case though and you don’t have to leave the place you love and the people who are always by your side, as your respite care can be delivered in the comfort and familiarity of your own home.
When to choose respite care
If you’ve been in hospital for a while you may be concerned that you won’t manage once you return home, so temporary care may be just what you need to get back to full health. Alternatively, you may normally have care and want someone to provide a seamless consistency while your regular carer takes a break. You can stay in the home you love with the people who mean the world around you, which is comforting and reassuring for both you and your loved ones. We can get care into your home quickly when you need it, and even in an emergency situation, such as your carer being taken ill, we can usually have someone there within hours.
Respite care services tailored to you
Whether you choose our visiting care or live-in care care service you’ll still receive the highest quality support, delivered by amazing carers who will always put you first. Promoting your independence and respecting your routines comes naturally to our compassionate carers and our bespoke packages of care will be tailored to your exact requirements. You may only need our care temporarily or you may decide that you enjoy having extra support and would like to continue receiving it, and with visiting and live-in care you’ll get the help you need with every aspect of your daily life. This includes medication, personal care, meal preparation, mobility, housework, assisting you to access the local community and companionship.
Qualified respite carers in Walsall
Our carers are amazing and we’re sure you’ll agree, as they regularly go above and beyond to ensure our customers live the best quality of life they can at home. Don’t take our word for it either, as we get many wonderful reviews submitted to us every day from satisfied customers and their loved ones. We like to think we are good judges of character, and when we select our carers we are really selective about who joins us, only employing those people who are naturally compassionate and really care for others from the heart. We keep our customers safe at home too though, by thoroughly checking our carers’ backgrounds and screening them through the Disclosure and Barring Service. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which demonstrates our commitment to always delivering the very highest standards of care, every single day.
