What is respite care?
Respite care is when you take a break from your full-time caring duties, while the person you look after is being cared for by someone else. We understand how demanding it can be to look after a loved one, which is why it’s important to take out time for yourself, so you can recharge your mind, body and spirit. Or you may feel you need additional support to look after your loved one. Whatever the reason, you can count on our Winchester care team to help support and provide you with the care you need.
Winchester respite support from Helping Hands
Our wonderful Winchester care team is always here to provide you with a helping hand. We offer respite care at home on a visiting care or live-in care basis. If the person you are caring for needs help little and often, then our visiting care package may be the best option for you. Or if they need constant support then you can choose our live-in care package. Our friendly carers can assist with cooking meals, feeding pets and personal care. Rest assured, we will ensure your loved one is provided with the expert care they require.
When to choose respite care
If you need someone to care for your loved one while you are away or need an extra pair of hands, then respite care may be the solution for you. You won’t need to worry about moving your loved one into a residential care home, our carers will come to you. They can remain and be cared for in the place they know and love most. It will also give you peace of mind knowing that your loved one is at home and being cared for by our compassionate and hard-working carers.
