Respite care – all about you

Every carer needs to take a break now and again – whether it’s an afternoon off to catch up with errands or a well-deserved week in the sun. This is where respite care comes in. A very flexible service, respite care provides cover regularly or as a one-off, from a quick pop-in to 24-hour care.

Respite carers can help with personal care, such as getting up, washing, eating and going to the toilet, and a range of other tasks, such as accompanying on medical appointments and social outings. It all depends on the needs of the individual, as everyone requires a different level of care.
