Helping Hands is not your average homecare agency, because we’re not an agency at all – we’ve been a private home care company since we were formed in 1989. This means that our service is fully managed by a dedicated team of local managers across England and Wales, and a branch network that numbers almost 150. Among these is our home care in Wimbledon team who work tirelessly to ensure that any care service needed in the local area is delivered as seamlessly as possible by compassionate carers who will provide respite care, or any other type of support needed, in our customers’ own homes, every single day.
Respite care is short-term care, usually delivered by someone different to your regular care company or agency, that supports you because your carer needs a break, or because you need additional help to get you back on your feet after an illness, surgery or accident. It might be that you don’t usually require care at home, and you live fully independently, but after a hospital discharge or a fall, you’d appreciate some care at home that will help you to regain full health.
Caring for another person is very rewarding, yet it can also leave your carer physically and emotionally exhausted, meaning it’s vital that they regularly get to take some time away to relax and unwind. Therefore, to ensure your carer gets to take a break without worrying that you’re being suitably supported, respite care from the Wimbledon team can see your care taken over seamlessly without the need for you to move out of the home you love and into residential care for the duration. Even if it’s an emergency, for instance your carer is taken ill and you are faced with the worry of finding another at short notice then call us first, as we can have a carer in your home in a matter of hours.
Respite care from Helping Hands is always delivered by dedicated carers who will focus on your wellbeing and ensure your independence is promoted as much as possible. Our respite care can be delivered on either a visiting care or live-in care in Wimbledon basis, meaning you can either have regular visits of the duration and frequency that suit your condition, or you can have a carer actually residing in your home with you. Whichever you choose, you can be sure that you’ll receive the highest standards of care and support every single day, whether it’s with personal care, mobility support, meal preparation, medication, housework help, companionship or accessing the local community.
Our carers are amazing at what they do – they go above and beyond every single day to ensure our customers live the best life they possibly can in the comfort and safety if their own home. This doesn’t happen by accident though – we only choose the most compassionate and naturally kind people to become our carers and we ensure they have the same focus as we do when it comes to providing the highest standards of care. We train them well and offer development opportunities so that they can add to their existing skills and experience, but ultimately it’s their natural abilities to care that makes them so special. Because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales too you and your loved ones can be confident in our ability to always deliver the care standards that we promise to.
