When you need respite care for a short period of time; a few days perhaps or even a week or two, our carers can visit and provide care, or even live in your home with you. Care visits start from 30 minutes at a time, once or several times a day, including overnight care if necessary. Live-in care means that your carer will be residing in your home with you, and one advantage of this includes around the clock companionship, in addition to the same high standards of care you’d expect from us. Your friendly carers in Warrington will ensure your fully bespoke package of care is personalised to you and your needs, and as Helping Hands have been providing care for people in their own homes for over 30 years, you’d expect nothing less from the UK’s foremost homecare experts.
If you require respite support but don’t want to leave your beloved home and move into residential care, having care come to you in your own home is a positive alternative. Being cared for at home is good for your physical and emotional health because you remain in the place you love, surrounded by the precious memories and reminders of a life well lived. You may also have loved ones or pets living in your home and you won’t want to leave them, even temporarily. Being supported by expert Warrington home carers means every task will be taken care of for you, including personal care, mobility support, meal preparation, medication administration and housework.
Receiving continuity of care once you’re discharged from hospital or while your regular carer is away is vital and by having care at home you and your loved ones can be assured this will happen with little disruption to your usual routine. Your bespoke package of care will include a personalised support plan, which your carer will use to ensure everything you need is taken care of.
Respite care when you’re discharged from hospital can make all the difference to you getting back on your feet. If you’re concerned that you won’t be able to manage when you return to your home, respite care is an ideal solution and ensures a continuity of care until you’re recovered fully.
When you need care in an emergency, it can be an extremely distressing time for the person and their loved ones. Having emergency care from Helping Hands though means we can have someone in place the same day you’re discharged, within 24 hours. This means that your care needs will be taken care of from the minute you arrive home. We can even offer nurse-led care for customers with the highest level of need, as well as though who wish to come home for those last few precious days.
