What is respite care?
Respite care provides you with the opportunity to receive additional support at the times you most need it. Also known as emergency care, respite care is generally a short-term care option that people use either when their normal carer is unavailable or when they’ve had a change of circumstances that necessitates external support. Rather than being left feeling unsupported or isolated, respite care gives you peace of mind that your care needs are always being met and that you won’t need to worry about being discharged early from the hospital or unexpectedly losing your normal carer.
