Respite care is about providing temporary relief to carers. The physical and emotional consequences of providing care at home for a family member can be overwhelming and respite often provides a much needed break for the care giver, whose own health could otherwise begin to suffer.
Temporary care in the home is a popular option because it doesn’t inconvenience the person who needs care with transportation or an unfamiliar environment. Routine is maintained, and medication is readily available.
We offer respite care on a one-off or regular basis, from short visits of one hour to full-day care, depending on the required time period. Our care team are trained to provide general care needs and can also handle emergency situations.
