At Helping Hands, we’ve got over 30 years of experience in providing a wide range of transformative, person-centred home care services to people across England and Wales. One of the services we offer is respite care, which gives you the opportunity to receive short-term support from our wonderful carers at the times when you most need it.
Respite support is a branch of care that’s designed to help you or your loved one out in your hour of need. There are numerous situations in which people opt for respite support – perhaps you’ve been discharged early from hospital and need an extra pair of hands around the house, or maybe you’ve suffered a medical setback and don’t have the mobility to undertake certain chores and routines.
Or, if you’ve got a friend or family member who normally takes responsibility for your care, you may wish to both take a break and have someone else help out for a few weeks. Whatever your reason for needing respite care, our Waterford care team will normally be able to have a carer in your home within 24 hours of your initial phone call, meaning you won’t have to stress about getting the support you need.
We know the value of having a care plan that is fully tailored to your particular needs and preferences. With respite support from Helping Hands, our care experts will always take the time to understand the way you like things to be done around the home as well as assessing any specific condition-led needs you may have. Perhaps you’re used to things being done in a certain way by your regular carers, or you’d benefit from your carer visiting at particular times in the day. Our care experts will do their utmost to make sure our care is flexible and adaptable around your requirements.
At Helping Hands Waterford, our wonderful carers truly are the heart and soul of our team. We’re very specific about who we recruit to our Waterford care team, as we want to make sure that all of our carers are kind, empathetic people who genuinely care about their roles. All of our carers undergo numerous background checks and a DBS check before joining us to ensure they’re the sort of person you’d be happy to have in your home.
We also provide every carer with our comprehensive, in-house training programme which includes modules such as handling and lifting, dementia care, health and safety, first aid and so much more. And, so that you can always have full peace of mind about your respite support, all of our care services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
