Highly-rated respite homecare provider across Basingstoke and surrounding areas
If you are the primary carer for a loved one, we know how important it is for you to have someone to trust and rely on when you are taking a break from your day-to-day care duties. Here at Right at Home, we can offer a friendly, familiar face to support your loved one when you take some much needed time for yourself.
What is respite care?
Respite care is temporary care to provide relief for a primary CareGiver. Often this is a family member caring for a loved one. You may need someone to cover a permanent CareGiver’s time off, or alternatively, respite homecare may simply provide extra assistance as and when you and your family need it.
Our respite care services in Basingstoke can be planned as a one-off or regular weekly visits, to provide peace of mind that your loved one is in safe hands.
Get in touch with Right at Home Basingstoke to discuss the type of respite care you and your family are looking for.
Here’s just one review of our respite care services:
“Right at Home Basingstoke has looked after my mum for several years. I have always found them to be helpful and supportive. I could not have wished for a better support system, a friendly voice at the end of the phone whenever things got difficult, or a cheery face for Mum when she was struggling. The Carers would often go out of their way to ensure Mum was comfortable and had everything she needed. I cannot praise the team enough in every aspect of Mum’s care and would not hesitate in recommending them. We would not have managed without them. Many, many thanks.”
How can Right at Home help with respite care?
At Right at Home Basingstoke, we offer a range of flexible services for respite care. We could arrange a one-off visit, or regular visits, to give a family CareGiver a break from their caring responsibilities. Alternatively, we can provide support as and when required.
You may need respite care for an hour or two each week, or it could be managed live-in care for a number of weeks whilst a family CareGiver goes on holiday. From companionship and meal preparation, to full support for someone with more complex care needs, our team of Ccarers in Basingstoke have someone suitable for the job.
Regardless of the duration of the package, or the level of care required, our approach is based entirely on our Clients’ usual routines. Our aim is always to make a temporary change in care services as easy for our Clients as possible. We care for our Clients in the same way we would care for a member of our own family, so you can rest assured that your loved one is receiving the highest standard of care.

How respite care works
As with all new Clients, we will come and spend time with them and their family in their home setting. This way we get to know every Client as an individual and can observe their day-to-day routines.
We will agree with the Client and their family on a specific care plan. This plan will address exactly how our team of CareGivers can help, based as much as possible on what normally happens. At Right at Home Basingstoke our respite services should mirror our Clients’ usual care and support as closely as possible.
We will then carefully match a suitable CareGiver. Before our in-home care services begin, we’ll arrange for your CareGiver to be introduced before they begin delivering care.
We also arrange, in advance, what level of communication the Client’s family would like during our time with them. This is to ensure that the family are kept well-informed and reassured. Our respite care services should always allow friends and family to relax in the knowledge that their loved one is in safe hands.
