Caring for someone can be very rewarding and it can also be demanding and tiring work – both physically and emotionally.
It is important that family carers take time off to have a break and to look after their own health and wellbeing.
This can happen through respite care.
Our Respite care is a form of support for carers. Our Respite Care may be for a few hours a day as it provides the opportunity to attend to everyday activities and have a break from the caring role. We can also take the person that is being cared on an outing for a few hours whilst being able to tend to things around the home.
Our Respite Care can be provided:
- at any time during the day or evening
It can also be provided for longer periods such as when family members need to take a well earned break or go on holidays.
Respite care can also be a positive experience for the person receiving care. It also provides assurance that they are being professionally cared for and in safe hands.
