Respite care is a short-term passage of care, often for one to two weeks, from a carer who is different from your usual provider.
These respite breaks can be both planned or unplanned depending on circumstances, and can take place in your own home. Everybody needs some time for themselves, even more so when they care for someone else. This is where respite care can be integral to you and your carer’s routine. Typically, this will be done to give your current carer a well-needed break from their duties.
Whether it’s covering a two-week holiday, a short break, or needed because of sickness or a family emergency, we’re here when you need us. We offer one-to-one care from skilled professionals trained on our Skills for Care endorsed training programme.
