Respite Home Care with Trinity

Trinity Homecare offer in-home respite care services that help transfer care responsibilities in times of need. As a respite care provider, we ensure those who rely on care still receive the heartfelt helping hand they need when their current carer cannot be by their side. This can be regular home care visits or full-time respite live-in care

What is respite home care?

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 Trinity’s in-home respite care services. 

In urgent situations, Trinity Homecare also offer emergency respite care. 

Trinity Homecare’s bespoke in-home respite care 

Respite home care is designed to be completely bespoke and flexible to accommodate for any changing circumstances and needs. The level of support is completely tailored to you and your loved one, allowing us to provide the exact level of care you require for your condition through visiting or live-in care. We do everything in our power to ensure the transition to respite care is simple, straightforward and stress-free. 

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 or needs specialist home care for a condition like Parkinson’s, dementia, or a stroke.

“I felt so supported when Mihaela arrived. Knowing she was there for mum and dad was such a relief. It meant I could have some of my own life back.” Annie King, daughter caring for both parents with dementia.

Benefits of Trinity’s respite home care

    • 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
    • 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
    • More independence & empowerment for the carer – you get the time to relax and enjoy a break 
    • Round the clock reassurance – knowing your loved one is in safe hands with the support and supervision of our care management team
    • 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
    • Complete flexibility – clients will receive the exact level of care they require as Trinity Homecare offers both daily care visits and respite live-in care
    • It is a great way to test whether live-in care is a long term option

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.

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.

Our in-home respite care can provide

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

Are there different types of respite home care?

Respite home care is completely flexible and bespoke. Whether you need us by your side once a week, multiple times per day or full time – we are here to help. For full-time care, respite live-in care is the most fitting option that provides round the clock assistance. 

Daily respite care:

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.

Respite live-in care:

Respite live-in care is the most suitable option in cases that require full-time assistance. A respite carer will live in your loved one’s home for an agreed period of time to provide full-time one-to-one care and assistance. 

Having a live-in respite carer ensures your loved one will receive one-to-one care without the need to leave their familiar surroundings. This can give you the reassurance that your client or loved one receives heartfelt care in the safety, comfort and familiarity of home. Having true peace of mind during a break away from care reduces stress levels as you know they are in completely safe hands. 

Specialist respite home care:

Conditions such as dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s and stroke recovery all typically require more specialist respite care. Ensuring that your loved one receives specialist care from a knowledgeable and experienced carer is an absolute priority during the care transition. With Trinity’s respite home care, we will provide a carer who is personally matched to your loved ones’ needs through our specially designed CareMatch service. 

Specialist care is available to both daily home care and respite live-in care packages. Whatever your circumstances may be, you can feel reassured that your loved one is receiving bespoke and specialist care from a care company that is rated as ‘outstanding’ by the CQC. 

Respite companionship: 

For those looking for companionship in a time where the usual companion cannot be there, our respite companionship services are perfect for you. Whether you’re looking for engaging conversation, a trip to the shops, company to participate in a favourite hobby or more. We can be by your side to help you do the things you love. 

How much does respite home care cost?

The cost of respite home care will depend on the level of support and service that is required. For daily respite care where we visit you in your own home, the cost will depend on the frequency and duration of the visits. 

The cost of live-in respite care will depend on various factors, including if you’d prefer Trinity Homecare to regulate the full service for you to control every aspect of your care. On the other hand, if you’re comfortable to manage a self-employed carer, this can be an alternate option for respite live-in care. 

Each service offers unique benefits and visiting our live-in care page will help you understand the benefits to a greater extent.
