Providing ongoing care for a loved one can certainly be challenging – and, at times, exhausting. If you are a full-time or part-time carer and would like temporary respite from your duties, IP Homecare offer 24 hour care live-in care, night care cover and much longer periods of help can be arranged for you.
For some, our respite care service provides family members and carers the space they need to have the essential period of time needed to recharge their batteries. Many decide to take a short holiday with friends or relatives. For others, this respite may provide the time they need to help cope with a difficult problem, situation or commitment, such as a planned hospital operation or family commitments far from home.
Short term 24/7 respite care can be helpful for a variety of reasons, we are often asked to provide extra homecare support to those who are coming home from hospital or out of a care home after a period of sustained care.
Short Term Respite Care for your Loved one
“Short term live in care is frequently requested by family members who find themselves as the main carer to a relative or loved one. They often arrange a living in carer for peace of mind whilst they are on holiday or to provide a respite period.”
Regardless of the situation, our respite care service guarantees continuity of care for the person you are caring for. Whether the patient is younger or older, our carers will listen closely to your preferences to ensure that all duties are carried out exactly as you would like them to be. We are experienced in dealing with numerous conditions, and also offer hospital discharge care for those who need support after coming out of hospital.
Respite Carers with a Difference
After you call IP Homecare for a quick friendly discussion, we would like to come and meet you and the person you are caring for to find out all about them. We work hard to make sure that our short term respite live-in care services are wholly focused on our customer’s emotional and physical needs, and want to work closely with you to make sure that the small things that make all the difference are known to, and noted by, our very highly trained, caring and professional staff.
We would try to maintain the individual’s routine that has already been established by you. This may include maintaining regular activities and interests, whatever they are, so that any disruption is kept to an absolute minimum and your return to the home after the respite has ended is a seamless as it could possibly be.
