Being a full-time carer for a friend or relative is hard work, especially if you have other work or family commitments to think about. Everyone needs to escape the stresses of daily life to relax and recharge every now and then. This is especially true for carers, who can become emotionally, physically, and mentally drained over time. It is so important for carers to take breaks from their caregiving duties and make time to focus on their own self-care.
You may have never needed care before, but after a hospital discharge or illness you may find that you are needing some support at home on a temporary basis. Respite care is a great solution.
Respite care is short term, and allows caregivers the time to enjoy a well-deserved break, while knowing that their loved one is being properly taken care of. Our Aylesbury team are able to offer high quality temporary care – a few hours, a few days, or even a couple of weeks. This means that you can go away on holiday, spend quality time with family and friends, or just spend some time alone, all while knowing that your loved one is receiving the highest standard of care while you’re not with them.
It means that you can return to your caregiving duties relaxed and refreshed. This will benefit both you and your loved one.
Respite care can be a useful form of care for many situations that are not ongoing. It is a good option of support when:
You will never have to worry about yourself or a loved one being without the support they need as respite care can be provided in almost any situation
Our dedicated professionals are always ready to step in and help, with anything from short weekly visits, to round-the-clock live-in care. Having a temporary carer also gives you and your loved one the opportunity to sample the excellent care options available locally to you if you think that your needs could be ongoing in the future.
You will feel peace of mind knowing that there is someone to take your place should your loved one ever be left without care. This allows both you and your loved one to face the future with confidence.
Each of our carers in Aylesbury is handpicked and goes through an intensive training programme at our industry endorsed Centre of Excellence, or in branch, regardless of their previous care experience. Our carers are selected based on their compassionate attitudes and dedication to helping people live independent, fulfilled, and happy lives in their own homes.
All of our training is overseen by the registered branch manager and an expert team. We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission, which means that we only put forward the best carers who will deliver the highest standard of care for you or your loved one. We are monitored by the CQC regularly and are always striving for the best.
We fully understand that handing over responsibility of care for your loved one can be difficult; but we’re here to offer reassurance and help you every step of the way.
