Respite Care by Clarendon Home Care
Are you or your loved one in need of respite care or support at home? Our respite care services offer primary caregivers the chance to get a much needed and well deserved break. Respite care can give you the chance to take a break from the person you’re caring for.
Our respite care is something that you can decide to use regularly or occasionally. Respite care helps the caregiver to have a break themselves and to keep up with their own commitments, relationships and hobbies and to do so with total peace of mind and reassurance.
Our respite care services are all tailored to you or your family’s needs. Respite care is the first step to making sure your loved one is getting help on a regular basis whilst you’re able to get the break you need. In the future you may decide to move on to live-in care or home care, which are both services we also provide.
Our carers are your second pair of hands and will aid you or your loved one to live a dignified and fulfilling life at home.
Who is respite care for?
Our respite care service is predominantly for primary caregivers that need to spread the responsibility of looking after a loved one who still lives at home. We offer an ongoing solution to alleviate some of the weight of looking after a loved one and to take some personal time. Or an occasional solution for holidays or events in which the loved one can or cannot attend.
Our visiting carers often become a lifeline for those that are feeling isolated or alone at home whilst looking after a loved one. It’s hard to put a value on the effect that a friendly face at the door can have on your day, especially when you’re feeling low or like you can’t manage in the same way you used to.
While the care on offer from our expert team usually goes over and above the basics, here are the essential tasks they can help you or your loved one manage:
- Personal care: such as bathing, showering, toileting and dressing.
- Safety: anxiety caused by a fear of falling can be alleviated by someone checking in on a regular basis.
- Help in the home: housework, laundry, shopping, preparing meals and running errands
- Help getting out of the house: for activities with friends or for a nice walk
Who will my carer be?
The key to our success over the years has been simple. We employ the very best carers who are committed to changing people’s lives.
Following an extensive selection process, all of our care assistants are trained in-house by our fully accredited training team. All staff are reference and background checked and during their training they must demonstrate competencies in being reliable, responsive, supportive, approachable, flexible, personable and thorough.
With regular support from our staff of field supervisors and routine appraisals and spot checks, we carefully select the right candidates to ensure that we maintain the high standards we’ve become known for.
How do I arrange my respite care?
The first step is to give a call or to request a call back by filling in the form below. We’ll start by having a no obligation chat on the phone about your circumstances and the kind of assistance you need from us. Then we’ll arrange a visit at your home when we can help you start thinking about what sort of care you need and how often you’d like our carers to visit.
From there we’ll work with you, your family and other healthcare professionals to create a care plan that is designed to meet your needs and routines. We’ll use this document to clarify the level of support you want and to agree upon your expectations of the care we’ll provide.
We always strive to help people get the right advice and the right care plan for them. There is a lot of confusing information available out there about the way care is organised and paid for and we’ll do all we can to help it all become a little clearer.
