Caring for a loved one or close friend can be a very rewarding yet equally often humbling experience. At times it can also be very stressful and demanding for the person caring. As with any full-time role, it is not practical for someone to do this full-time indefinitely, everyone needs a proper break at some point and that’s when respite care can help.
It is now widely recognised that as pressure mounts from Government budgets to care for more people in their own home, there is a corresponding need to provide respite care where the carer can “charge up” their batteries again, and the person being cared for also can have a change in routine and a “holiday” from their normal surroundings.
Respite care can also be valuable when trying to ensure a healthy care-work-life balance or allow the take-up of annual holidays without the stress of worrying who’s going to look after Mum or Dad.
Our Care Homes will provide the care you want for your loved one while you take a well-earned and much-needed break from caring.
Respite care can be for a weekend, a week, or any other length of time that fits in with your needs.
We would be delighted to discuss specific respite care needs and associated costs with you.
