  2. Seamless transition into respite care 
  3. Full peace of mind for carers and their clients or loved ones 
  4. Support from Harmony In Care carers and Care Managers
  5. A compassionate team that offers heartfelt support

What is respite home care?

Our respite home care services are called upon to provide care and assistance when someone needs it. Typically, this is to cover for loved ones, relatives or professional care assistants that require time away from their clients. 

This can be due to multiple reasons, such as annual leave, holidays, illness and more. Although many carers feel anxious about taking a break, you can find true peace of mind through Harmony In Care’s in-home respite care services, allowing your loved one to stay in the comfort of their own home with all their needs taken care of. In urgent situations, Harmony In Care Homecare also offers emergency respite care. 

Bespoke in-home respite care with Harmony In Care

If required, respite home care can also be integrated into your routine on a more permanent basis. For example, if a carer has a regular appointment, hobby or something integrated into their personal routine; respite care gives the opportunity to rest and focus on themselves. We are here to support you, whether your loved one is ill and requires complex care or needs specialist home care for a condition like Parkinson’s, dementia, or a stroke. Our elderly respite care services are specifically tailored to fit your loved ones complex needs as well as fit in around your lifestyle and commitments.

Benefits of Harmony In Care’s respite home care

Our respite home care service has been specifically designed so we are able to walk into your home and naturally take over any care-related responsibilities. The ultimate goal of our in-home respite care is to allow you time away from your care duties with guaranteed peace of mind.

  1. Maintenance of the exact desired daily routine
  2. Companionship and engaging conversation
  3. Preparation of healthy and nutritious food
  4. Prompting or administering medication at the right time of day (if required)
  5. Assisting with any personal care (e.g. washing, dressing & continence care if needed)
  6. Keeping the house clean and tidy
  7. Accompaniment to the doctors or any hospital appointments
  8. Participating in favourite hobbies and activities

Daily respite care is available from one hour a week to multiple visits each day. The care you receive will be entirely bespoke depending on the level of assistance you require. Whether your loved one would benefit from companionship once a week or daily visits to assist with aspects of personal care, daily respite care will provide vital support for you and your loved ones.

During our time providing respite home care, we have developed strong relationships with both the NHS and CCGs. We support individuals in various situations with care following hospital discharge to provide for them in times of need.

  1. Less stress and upheaval for the person being cared for – there is no need to temporarily move to a care home and change regular routines, which can cause distress and discomfort for the patient, and worry for you.
  2. Less distress and uncertainty – the respite home care client can find peace of mind that they will be taken care of in their own home.
  3. More independence & empowerment for the carer – you get the time to relax and enjoy a break.
  4. Round the clock reassurance – knowing your loved one is in safe hands with the support and supervision of our care management team.
  5. Better value for money than a care home – your loved one has one-on-one support whenever they need it, compared to very little contact time in a care home.
  6. Complete flexibility – clients will receive the exact level of care they require as Harmony In Care Homecare offers both daily care visits and respite live-in care.
  7. It is a great way to test whether live-in care is a long term option
