Respite Care with Home Instead Maidstone

It’s a vital service provided by our local office team and exceptional Care Professionals here at Home Instead Maidstone, and this blog aims to shine a spotlight on this service, explaining a little more about how it benefits our clients.

Respite care, is interim regular or short term care provided to older adults when their primary caregiver needs rest, a break from their daily tasks, or has their own needs to tend to. Our respite care service at Home Instead Maidstone is not just about filling gaps, but about providing a warm, compassionate environment that allows older adults to thrive while their caregivers get the rest and rejuvenation they need.

Respite Care

Respite care is invaluable

It plays two pivotal roles – supporting our client and providing a well-deserved break for the caregiver. It ensures that older adults continue to receive professional, passionate, and dedicated care while their primary caregivers can rest or attend to other responsibilities, knowing their loved ones are in the best hands. 

Our team at Home Instead Maidstone deeply understands this. We ensure that our Care Professionals are able to step into the shoes of the primary caregivers, offering exceptional, personalised care that enriches the lives of the older adults they serve. They are an extended family member, proficient in skills and expertise, overflowing with warmth and kindness – a reassuring anchor in the lives of the families they touch.

A lifeline for family caregivers

One example of the impact our home care services can have comes from one of our clients, David, who has been with us for nearly four years. David cares for his wife Wendy, who has severe Alzheimer’s disease.

“In the early stages, the care visits were to sit with my wife or take her out on short visits to the local garden centre for coffee and a cake. This enabled me to devote some time to myself,” says David. 

When Wendy’s needs changed, “we then used Home Instead to give her a shower and get her in her pyjamas about 5 pm.” This allowed David to prepare their dinner without worrying about Wendy’s wellbeing.
