Whether you need cover for a few days a week, or require a full-time live-in carer, our respite care package can help ensure that your loved one is looked after in their own home, while you take a deserved break from caregiving.
Respite care is support for whenever you need to take a break from caring for a loved one, whether it’s to go on holiday or simply to take some time to recharge your own batteries and engage in a little TLC. Our Wigan home care team can be on hand to fill in for you and offer a little respite, without you having to worry about who is looking after your loved on at home. As carers ourselves, we understand that everyone needs a breather now and then and a little self-care. With Helping Hands, you can rest assured that everything is carrying on as it should at home, and that your loved one will be well looked after while you’re away.
There are a few options for respite support in Wigan, but we like to think that Helping Hands offers care services that go above and beyond. It’s important to us that you feel you have one less thing to worry about, so you can rest and relax properly. Our carers can come to your home and offer assistance in whatever way you need, for as long as you need it. We can be there to help with shopping and meal prep for the day, with medications, and even things like watering the plants and making sure the dog gets a walk.
Respite care is there to support you, whatever your needs. You may find that an emergency situation or an urgent work or family matter is demanding all your attention, and you need to step aside for some time. But respite care is not only spur-of-the-moment, but can be planned ahead in advance. For example, you could have a carer visit every few months to give you some time off, without the stress of wondering who will take care of things at home in your absence.
Finally, respite care can also be a godsend for those moments in life where additional support is needed. You may need an extra pair of hands to help with recovery after an operation or accident. Our Wigan home carers are flexible, practical and attentive people who can stand by to make sure that things are taken care of until you’re feeling better. Whether planned or unplanned, our mission at Helping Hands is to make sure you and the people you care for are always safe and comfortable at home, no matter what life throws your way.
At Helping Hands we specialize in offering care that is 100% customized to your unique lifestyle, presences and needs. We get to know you on a personal level so we can offer support that fits your life, taking into consideration any mobility issues, health concerns or even conditions such as dementia. Whatever your limitations, we find a way.
When you first contact our customer support team, we’ll work with you to devise a care plan that genuinely makes you life easier. We carefully match our carers and customers because we believe it’s important to make a genuine, human connection and to really to get to know one another. Beyond respite care, we can offer emergency care, nurse-supported care, overnight support, and a range of options for both live-in care or visiting home care.
Over the more than 30 years that we’ve been in business, Helping Hands has earned a reputation for offering care of the very best standard. This is because we only work directly with the best carers in the industry, and never agency staff. All of our carers are not just expertly qualified and experienced, but they sincerely love making a difference in people’s’ lives.

We understand that seeking out care can be a little daunting, even if it’s only for a limited period. We’re here to help, though, and are ready to answer any of your questions about how our respite care can help you and your family today.
