Holiday Care – whether your needs are short-term to get you through the holidays, or you’re feeling that a longer-term plan is in order, Florida Home Care can arrange a plan to fit any need.
We know that there is nothing quite like a holiday to recharge your batteries and, just because you need regular care, doesn’t mean you should have to go without a break. Our holiday care service allows you the flexibility to take your care with you, wherever you go, in the UAE, abroad, work or pleasure.
Our holiday care service supports individuals who find it difficult to go on holiday due to the level of care and support that they require whilst away from home, often resulting in them not getting the break they need.
We can provide a Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or Support Worker to accompany you on holiday in the UAE or abroad, to support you with your activities of daily living. This can be with you individually, or with your family and friends. Having the support of a professional Carer allows you and your family to relax, safe in the knowledge that you are getting the personal attention and support that you need to get the most out of your holiday.
Our service is tailored to your individual care requirements. Whether you have complex medical care requirements, personal care needs, or are looking for social companionship, we are confident in offering you a high quality care service.
If you are holidaying in the UAE, near to one of regional branch locations and require care assistance, we can provide a hotel call-out service, arranging for a Nurse, Healthcare Assistant or Support Worker to provide you with care and support including the administering of medication, during the day or night.
Holiday Care FAQs
Are you able to provide support if I choose to go abroad?
In most cases we are able to provide holiday care for individuals travelling abroad. As part of your care assessment, before travelling we will assess your medical condition, care requirements and chosen destination in order to determine the level of care that you require and whether we will be able to provide this care for you.
Aside from paying for the care service, will there be any additional costs?
In addition to paying for your care service, you are required to cover the cost of certain expenses including: travel costs, such as flights and transfers, separate sleeping arrangements for your Carer, such as their own hotel room or bedroom, food costs, travel insurance and the cost of any excursions that you may wish to take part in during your trip.
Will my Carer need to take a break?
Your Carer will need to take a break during the day. The frequency and duration of the breaks they require will depend on the type of care they are providing. If your Carer is staying with you throughout your stay, they will require 2 hours of respite per day. This 2 hour period does not need to be taken in one block, it can be taken in shorter durations such as 4 x 30 minute breaks, at times to suit your convenience.
If you require 24 hour care and cannot be left unattended at any time we can arrange for more than one Carer to accompany you on your holiday, therefore ensuring that when one Carer has their respite, your other Carer will be there to fully support you.
Will you book my holiday for me?
Whilst we will do everything we can to support you and make your break as enjoyable as possible, we cannot source or book your holiday for you. Once you have booked your holiday you will be able to relax knowing that you will receive the care that you need during your break.
