What is respite care?

respite care

Providing care for a dependent relative can be extremely demanding and exhausting, both physically and mentally. Respite care is about enabling those who provide such care to have a well earned break, whether that be for one or two, or several hours on a daily or weekly basis. It is essential that those who are the main carer for their loved one are able to have some down time, time for themselves to recuperate or to pursue a hobby or activity they enjoy, to support their own health and wellbeing. Sierra Homecare offer high quality respite care in the safety of people’s own homes, where they feel most comfortable, surrounded by their belongings, without any disruption to their normal routine.

Respite Care Provider

respite care

Sierra Homecare offer daytime respite breaks for many different care types, ie the disabled, those with dementia/Alzheimer’s, those with learning disabilities, and the elderly. We offer respite breaks from a couple of hours daily to several days per week.

The care we provide is tailored to each individual. Before commencement of service we will undertake detailed consultation to gain an understanding of each individual’s needs and preferences to ensure care is delivered the way they choose. A care and support plan will then be provided for the approval of the individual, which will be followed by our fully trained staff to maintain their usual routines in the comfort of their own homes.

Type of Respite

Respite care is about providing support at times an individual’s main carer is unavailable, whether that be for a couple of hours a day whilst they take a well earned break, attend appointments, attend activities, or for longer periods of time such as providing support when the main carer is on holiday, all care will be provided in the individual’s own home.

Our trained staff will ensure that consistency of care and support are maintained.

Home Care

Home visits can be arranged on a daily or weekly basis to ensure individuals receive consistent, quality care at home, without interruption to their usual routine, whilst their main carer is away from the home, attending appointments or social activities.

Help can be provided with personal care, household chores, or for companionship and accompanying individuals to social events, activities and hobbies. We can provide support with mobility, medication and preparing meals.

Elderly

We are committed to support our elderly clients to stay living independently in the comfort of their own homes. Our friendly team are able to assist with personal care, housekeeping and to provide companionship. To receive support for personal care can be daunting, but our fully trained carers will provide the appropriate amount of support as required, encouraging people to do as much as they can for themselves. We can accompany clients to appointments, on shopping trips, to the cinema and other social or community activities or visits which may otherwise not be possible.

We encourage our clients to stay healthy, assist with food shopping, food preparation, and to undertake gentle exercise.

Dementia

Individuals with dementia are best supported in their own home where they are surrounded by their own belongings following their usual routines, where they will not face the anxiety and distress of being in the unfamiliar environment of even the best care homes. Any change to routine can be distressing for someone who is living with dementia, so care at home is often the best care choice to provide continuity of care within the home they know and love. A detailed support plan will be put into place following a full consultation with our client/their family to ensure that the support we provide fully fulfils their care needs and their preferences, enabling them to remain relaxed and calm in their own home. We recognise that no two people are the same so our support plans are individually tailored. We will always ensure a regular carer visits, a friendly face who they will get to know.

Mental stimulation is important for those with dementia and we will help facilitate our clients interests and hobbies, taking them to community activities and events as required.

Home Respite Care

Moving a loved one into a care or nursing home can be very distressing for the individual and their family. More and more, home care is becoming the preferred care option for families to ensure their loved one can remain in the home they know and love. Only when you receive care in your own home can you be fully in control of how and when your care and support are provided, where you can make your own decisions. Care within your own home will allow for maximum privacy and dignity and the benefits of not having to share facilities with others will ensure a quieter and more peaceful environment.
