Respite care is short term care for people when their usual carers or family members are not available, or can be used following an accident, operation or temporary illness. The care we can provide allows people to stay in their own homes among their possessions and in a familiar environment. We can provide visits several times a day if needed or just a check-in visit once per day. The number of visits can be dependant on your needs, and for the duration of your choice.
If you are caring for someone on a day to day basis this can be physically and emotionally challenging. Respite care allows you to recharge and have a much needed rest in the knowledge that your loved one is being looked after by our dedicated home support workers. We understand that it can be a difficult decision to leave a loved one with someone else, however we will arrange for home support workers to be introduced to you and your loved one to help put your mind at ease that they are in safe hands.
