At Helping Hands, we’ve got over 30 years’ experience in helping customers across England and Wales to enjoy their independence in the comfortable, familiar surroundings of their own homes. In that time, it’s safe to say we’ve become experts in delivering a level of support that truly makes a difference to people’s quality of life. Our respite care plans start from just 30 minutes of visiting care a week, and with 24/7 support from our live-in care team as an option, we really are able to offer a level of support to people with any level of need.
It’s not always possible to anticipate when you might require additional care support in your home. For instance, your normal carer might be taking a well-earned break but hasn’t been able to arrange cover, or perhaps you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than anticipated and have been left without the support you need on a day-to-day basis. Whatever your reasons for needing care at short notice, respite care from Helping Hands gives you the opportunity to have one of our excellent, expertly-trained carers in your home, generally within 24 hours of your initial call, to assist in any way you might require – from providing personal care and helping you get out and about, to doing the laundry and the housework.
When you choose Helping Hands for respite care, you’ll get a holistic package of care that is completely tailored to your particular situation. We appreciate that you’ll like things to be done in a certain way around your home; perhaps you wish to go to bed at a certain time, you have a favourite meal that you’d like your respite carer to prepare, or your regular carer has a particular way of caring for you that you especially like. Our compassionate carers will go above and beyond to make sure you get a care plan that is unique to your individual needs and wishes, so that you feel completely comfortable and supported in your home.
Our Worthing care branch comprises a wonderful team of carers who have been specifically chosen for their empathetic personalities and their committed, professional approach to their care. We know that not every applicant is cut out for a care-based role, so we’re very particular about the type of person we recruit to our care teams. Every new carer is enrolled in our award-winning training programme when they start at Helping Hands, as well as receiving regular refresher courses which keep their knowledge and skillset up to date with the latest care industry standards and best practices. Plus, for your added peace of mind, all of our care services are fully regulated and monitored by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, cementing our commitment to providing only the very highest standards of care every day.
