Respite care is a period of usually one to two weeks where your regular carers get to take a rest. Traditionally, the only way this could be achieved was by you going into temporary residential care, however with Helping Hands’ local care team in Wellingborough looking after you, the option to stay in your home has never been easier. Our respite carers can visit and provide care and support, or even live in your home with you and with visits starting from just 30 minutes per week, you and your loved ones have the option to build the perfect package of care around your needs.
Visiting care is exactly as it sounds – our compassionate carers come to your home as often as you need them, whether it be once a week, twice a day or overnight. If you require respite care you may already be receiving a higher level of care for perhaps a more complex condition, so its likely that you’ll want us to come throughout the day, however that’s entirely up to you or the people acting on your behalf. Live-in respite care means your carer residing in your home with you around the clock, and the advantages of this include companionship whenever you want it, and reassurance for your family that you’re never on your own. Regardless of which service you choose though, or a combination of both, you can always be assured of the high standards of care you’d expect from us.
Respite care may be necessary because your regular carer needs to take a well-earned break, whether you have a professional carer, or your loved ones carry it out for you. It’s vital that carers get to have regular rests from their responsibilities because caring, while incredibly rewarding, can also be exhausting.
Maybe you don’t usually require care but you’re recovering from a hospital stay, an injury or illness, or you would like to discover if care is right for your needs; in these cases respite care can be a helpful addition to your life in the short-term as you regain your strength and work towards regaining full independence.
