Respite care services: because we all need a break at times
Everybody needs time for themselves. Taking a break is particularly important when you’re caring for a family member or friend which, however much you love them, can also become demanding at times. Our respite care services allow you to take some much deserved time to yourself, knowing that the person you care for is receiving all the support they need.
Respite care can be used for all sorts of reasons. Perhaps you’d like to meet a friend for lunch, do some shopping, spend some valuable time with family or attend an appointment. Or maybe you’re planning a well-earned holiday – we can provide respite care while you’re away too. We can even accompany your loved one on their own holiday here in the UK.
Personalised support from professional carers
We can provide support as often or as little as you like, both during the daytime and at night. Everything we do is fully personalised to suit your loved one and our fantastic, professional care workers can fit into your loved one’s usual routines, so any disruption is kept to an absolute minimum.
Whatever your requirements, our flexible respite care services mean your loved one can continue to live comfortably in their own home even when you’re not there.
Some of the care and support options we can help with include:
- Personal care: including assistance with washing and dressing, mealtime support, administering medication, skincare, managing continence and using the toilet.
- Domestic services: including cleaning, shopping, changing the bed and preparing meals.
- Household management: such as managing paperwork, watering plants, feeding pets and running general errands.
- Social support: such as support to visit family members and friends or to use community facilities such as the cinema, restaurants, places of worship or favourite clubs.
