Whether it’s covering a day, a few days, or even a few weeks, respite care can provide you with a well-deserved break from your care-giving duties or support you whilst you are not needing care long-term. Our home care in Manchester team offers this level of care completely tailored to your loved one, with anywhere from a short 30-minute visit once a week, to several visits a day, or even 24-hour live-in care.
This means that you can go away on holiday, run errands, or spend quality time with other family members and friends, all while knowing that your loved one is being properly taken care of. Respite care can allow you to take some downtime, and you can then return to your caregiving duties feeling refreshed.
Respite care is a great option for when your needs are not ongoing. We can provide live-in care in Manchester for as little as three days, and visiting home care for as little as one day if you just need temporary support.
It can be a useful form of care:
• If you’re going on holiday and would like to arrange some cover for your loved one whilst you are away
• If you are going on holiday yourself and would like support during your time away to help you get the most out of your holiday
• Following a hospital discharge if you need some support whilst you are getting used to being back at home
• If you are unwell, and need some extra care whilst you are recovering
• When you are attending an event such as a wedding or university graduation and need some help whilst you are there.
If you are a care giver yourself, it can often seem that all of your time and effort is going on supporting your loved one, and don’t make the time to focus on your own needs. Everyone needs time to relax and recharge, which is why it’s natural – and essential – that you take a break at regular intervals.
It’s important to remember that there may come a time, due to a family emergency or illness, when you are unable to provide care, or your current carer needs to take a break. Respite care can therefore be set up and in place in as little as 24 hours. We provide a very flexible service, meaning that your loved one will never be without the support they require.
