Respite Care

We provide a respite service for people who rely on relatives or friends for most of their care but would like to give that person a break from time to time. Regular respite is an important strategy for maintaining both health and wellbeing for both primary carers and care recipients.

We can also provide care workers for an extended period, perhaps a few times a week to provide respite for the primary carer or for shorter periods where the primary carer is unable to provide their usual support or simply needs to recharge their batteries.

We understand that many carers may feel worried or guilty about taking a break from the person they are supporting, even for a short while. A comprehensive, personalised care plan will be formulated to ensure minimal disruption for the person receiving care and peace of mind for the person taking the break.
