Being a full-time carer of an older person or an adult with complex health needs can be both challenging and rewarding. There may be times when you need to take a rest from this role but you may be worried about whether your loved one will receive the same level of care you give on a daily basis.
You can be rest assured that our team or fully trained carers can step in and give you the chance to have a well earned rest knowing that the high standards of care that you provide are maintained.
Honeydew Healthcare are based in the heart of the Midlands and offer respite care in your own home across Birmingham, Coventry, Nottingham, Leicester and Derby.
If you are a carer and want to consider respite care options you can contact us and one of our supervisors will meet with you to understand fully the needs of the person that needs support. Once the assessment has been carried out we can assign a member of our team that will offer the most appropriate level of care.
We are able to offer respite care to older people as well as adults with more complex health needs such as; learning disabilities, Asperger’s, Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and other long-term conditions.
You may require respite care for different reasons, below we list a few ways in which we can help:
- Respite care for a few hours a day if you need to go out.
- Overnight care to help out if extra support is required.
- Respite care for longer periods to allow you to go on holiday.
- Emergency respite care if you are taken ill or need to go away.
In some cases families that require respite care on a regular basis will ask us to provide the same carer each time. This helps as the carer gets to know them all and fully understands what is required. Our staff range from health care support workers that offer personal care to fully trained nurses.
We take pride in ensuring that there is minimum disruption to your loved one and that all routines adhered to and individual preferences taken into consideration.
