Respite & Holiday Care
Change the Pace
Everyone has their own physical limitations. As much as some of us try to be inexhaustible workers and achievers in our life, we all need a bit of rest and a change of pace every once in a while.
This is especially true for people whose life is filled with big responsibilities and daily tasks requiring constant attention.
When you’re responsible for caring for a sick or elderly loved one, you often need to devote a lot of time to this, leaving little room for other obligations. While the cycle of going through your daily routine and shouldering all the responsibilities may seem inevitable, you should always remember that there are more options available.
With our respite care and holiday care services, you’ll be able to take a break from hectic daily responsibilities and let someone else help you out with the work. Whether that means taking care of your loved one while you’re away or going on a holiday together with your loved one, our carers are ready to assist.
One way to take a much-needed break is through respite care. The respite care services we offer are essentially a way for our specialists to support your loved one while you’re away or unable to care for them yourself. You may consider it a short-term or urgent solution to a situation that you’re simply not equipped to handle on your own.
Respite care can be an incredible solution in many different situations. Just a few of the most common are:
- You need to take a holiday or business trip.
- You have health problems, or perhaps are in need
of hospital treatment.
- Your regular carer needs some time off or has fallen ill.
- You are considering a new approach to care and would
like to initiate a short trial period.
- You have become exhausted by the demands of
caring for another and need some time off.
- You have duties or responsibilities that take you away from your usual carer role, such as work tasks.
Whether you’re facing one of these circumstances or a completely unique situation, it will be good to take some time off and let our carers handle many of your serious care responsibilities.
We Can Travel
But what if you want to bring your loved one on a vacation with you? It’s a wonderful way to bring some joy and holiday into their life.
That’s where holiday care comes in. One of our carers can go on holiday with you and assist your loved one while there. That means you’ll be able to relax and not worry about taking care of your family member, while they, too, can get some positive emotions, while still staying close to you.
Still in doubt about whether to take advantage of respite and holiday care? Then you should look at all the advantages.
A long-overdue vacation
If you have not been on a vacation in a long time due to the constant need to stay close to home, you’ll finally be able to take some time to enjoy yourself. All with the comfort and relief of knowing that your loved one is receiving the highest level of care.
Peacefully recovery and personal care
If you are suffering from illness or infection, respite care will let you devote the time and effort needed to your personal care. No need to worry about infecting your loved one or providing them with a low level of care.
Don’t forget that even the most experienced and energetic care professionals can get worn out and exhausted sometimes. Having a backup available for your regular carer will allow your loved one to receive uninterrupted care from a qualified specialist.
Having a temporary care specialist does not mean that you should not expect the same high level of care as that offered by full-time carers.
At Care24Seven, all of our carers undergo a rigorous and thorough training process, which establishes the graduates as qualified for a wide spectrum of care services. The experience that they pick up over the next months and years of actual practice only makes their level of support that much higher.
All of our employees are properly vetted, and our organisation itself strives to live up to the highest standards in the field.
If you opt for our services, your loved ones will be in capable hands. If you are interested in the service but unsure of how everything works, we can certainly offer a rundown.
To begin with, give us a call and describe the care requirements and circumstances:
- Whether you need respite or holiday care
- How long your loved one will require care
- How many hours and how regularly
- Any other relevant information about the health condition of the patient and special requirements for care.
Once we know everything about your case, we can move on to making the needed arrangements, and having one of our carers start assisting.
We understand that every health condition and situation is different, and requires a unique approach. Elderly people also sometimes face certain emotional qualms when a new person appears in their life, offering care and support. Our specialists are well aware of such typical trust issues and are well equipped to handle them and leave your loved one with a sincere peace of mind. Furthermore, some forms of respite care such as respite aged care for senior individuals, and autism respite care, require specific skills and a clear understanding of individual needs. You can expect our carers too come prepared and adapt to the situation
based on the needs of your loved one.
There is nothing wrong with taking a break, and we are ready to make the process as easy and seamless as possible for you. It can be hard to entrust someone new with caring and ensuring the safety of your family member, but we are here to address any concerns and answer your questions. Give us a call, and we can start looking for the best solution for your case even today.
Thank you so much for looking after my mother. I have been around to see her today,
and the flat has never looked cleaner or better maintained. Thanks finally
for doing the laundry and for the spotless state of the flat.
You are a marvel!
I just wanted to thank you for the great care that you
have provided for my mother. She had a really lovely Christmas Day
and was very happy for that. Thank you, and many thanks once again.
Thank you all for the wonderful care that mummy’s getting.
I couldn’t ask for better.
Since Care24Seven took over the care at home of my father and mother,
I have been very pleased with the professionalism and care you have shown.
In particular, there has been a marked improvement in my father’s mental
and physical wellbeing.
Why Hundreds of Families
Have Already Chosen Care24Seven for Live-in Care
1:1 Care Ratio: Unlike hospitals or care facilities that have one staff member per a group of elderly, we offer one-on-one care. This means the carer will devote all their time and attention to your loved one and their needs.
48 Hour Contract: We know how unexpectant life can be, and are flexible and ready to accommodate any situation. We have a short contract, which means that you only pay for what you use and can start and stop care at any time, adjusting as needed.
Quality of service: Entrusting the care of your loved ones to somebody you have not known for very long can feel like a risk, but we can assure you of the highest level of care. Our carers will cater to the major and minor needs of your loved one, and provide them with the greatest level of care and treatment that they deserve.
Financial benefits: With the rising costs of care facility services, care at home is proving to be the cheaper option. That’s not surprising as it excludes many of the expenses you would otherwise be paying for in a facility, such as rent and wages, and may even help your loved one qualify for funding help.
A certified training centre: Not only do we have over a million hours of care behind our belt, but we’re a certified training centre ourselves. This means that not only do we train our own carers face-to-face, but we also train other carers from all over the country.
No long waits for care: When care is needed, it is often needed quickly. We can begin our care responsibilities in as little as 48 hours from you first contacting us. In under 48 hours you will have a fully trained carer to look after you or your loved one.
