Caring for a loved one can be physically and mentally very demanding. It’s a role that requires 100 per cent commitment, and a lot of selflessness. No matter how committed you are to the needs of the person you’re caring for, you also need to make time for yourself.
Helping Hands’ home respite care services enable carers to ensure their loved ones receive the help and support they need whilst they take a short break from their roles.
Respite Care in the Home – A Break for Carers
We’ve designed our services to allow you to recharge, safe in the knowledge that your loved one is being looked after by one of our friendly carers. Respite for carers can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks away from the role. So, this short break will enable you to return to caring feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Our respite services see warm and friendly temporary carers go into the homes of people affected by a range of conditions to provide short term care. In over 25 years as a provider of home care, we’ve delivered respite support for the carers of elderly people, Dementia respite care, and much more.
Allowing someone else to come into the home can be a tough decision. There are worries over disruption to existing routines, and lifestyle.
Our short term carers recognise the importance of planning any temporary care. They’ll communicate with you to ensure that your loved one’s medical and lifestyle requirements are met during your absence.
Emergency Respite Care
Support for carers isn’t just there for when you feel like you need a break. If you become ill, or you have to go into hospital, you can call on our emergency respite carers whilst you recuperate.
Through our emergency respite services, we enable you to rest assured that your loved one will continue to get the care they need in their own home.
We understand that emergency situations arise with no prior warning. There’s often very little time to plan for emergency respite care. We have a large pool of carers, who are enthusiastic about the people they look after and the roles they serve, across the UK.
This means you can always rely on us to arrange for a carer to provide short term care in the home quickly and efficiently.
