“HELP” of Denia and Marina Alta aim to provide assistance in an emergency and/or in the short term where people, due to health problems are unable to cope adequately themselves.

  For instance: Following discharge from hospital
  Finding residential care either for convalescence or long term
  Finding appropriate help or care for an individual, who may be elderly or infirm, cope in their own home

We do not normally provide nursing care, but in this area there is little community care available for those who are ill or for those discharged from hospital still needing some specialised professional care.
In these situations it is not always appropriate for “HELP” volunteers to assist, and there is a need to call in ‘the professionals’.
A limited Nursing & Home Care service has very recently been set up to provide this professional care, after an assessment and where no other nursing care is available, we may be able to provide assistance for a few weeks.

The Respite Care Service allows a relative/carer of someone with long term nursing or care needs at home, to have a break, knowing that their loved one is in a safe environment and receiving appropriate care. “HELP” work with homes in Benimeli, Javea, Calpe,┬áTeulada, Alfaz del Pi and have our own Hospice/ Respite Care Room in Fontilles Sanatorium, to provide this care so that the carer can have a break, relax or just catch up on all those jobs which were impossible whilst caring for someone. At Fontilles Sanatorium we have a room we keep all year round.
An assessor will have a chat to make sure Respite is appropriate, and then make the necessary arrangements and a booking.

Please ask for help before problems become major, sometimes advice, which costs nothing may save any unnecessary discomfort.
