Respite Care for Carers
Typically, respite care means taking a break from your caring duties, while someone else looks after the person you care for. Whether you are planning on taking a much-needed holiday, short break or need to find someone else to help you with your caring duties, due to undertaking medical treatment such as an operation or being ill yourself, our respite carers are highly qualified and experienced, so you can rest assured that your loved one is in good hands.
At Helpd, our self-employed carers offer flexible care solutions that meet the needs of you and your family; from temporary live-in care to visiting respite care, our experienced carers are highly-qualified and can help with a broad range of caring tasks that include:
- Personal care: grooming, bathing, etc
- Clinical care such as catheter care, peg feeding, etc…
- Medication prompting
- Assisting with eating and drinking
- Help with attending appointments
Our experienced respite carers are employed directly by you, so they can help you or a loved one as much or as little as you want. Employing your carer directly means you can benefit from continuity of care, as you will see the same carer each time, as well are ensuring that normal routines are kept to.
We work a little differently to traditional care agencies, as all of our careers are self-employed, this means you can expect flexible, cost-effective care that is tailored to your needs. At Helpd, we bring together clients and carers and help both sides manage the contracts, paperwork and payments.
Cost of respite care
The cost of respite care can vary depending on the needs of the person being cared for. Of course, the more complex the care needs of the individual, the more expensive respite care can be.
Our carers are self-employed, so they set their own rates. It is possible, depending on your circumstances, to get help with the cost of respite care from a number of organisations including from your local authority and the NHS.
