In home respite care, for when you’re in a need of a break
Respite care is a short-term passage of care, often for one to two weeks, from a carer who is different from your usual provider. These respite breaks can be both planned or unplanned depending on circumstances, and can take place in your own home.
Everybody needs some time for themselves, even more so when they care for someone else. This is where respite care can be integral to you and your carer’s routine. Typically, this will be done to give your current carer a well-needed break from their duties.
Whether it’s covering a two-week holiday, a short break, or needed because of sickness or a family emergency, we’re here when you need us. We offer one-to-one care from skilled professionals trained on our Skills for Care endorsed training programme.
With 30 years’ experience, our team of dedicated carers are all trained to provide the highest standard of care possible. We’re here to make sure the person you care for has the right support, even if you’re not around. As we’re regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), you can rest assured that your loved one is safe and has everything they need. Whether respite care is for disabled people, companionship or condition led care, we are able to support you every step of the way. We will give you information and advice throughout and aid you when you’re arranging respite care to get a change of scenery.
What is respite care?
Respite care is temporary care for the elderly or individuals when their normal carers are not available. Respite care, or carers respite, is typically used as part of recovery after an accident, illness or surgery when regular carers need a break, or additional specialised support is required.
This temporary arrangement is offered by trained carers for numerous care types including assisted living, residential care, types of dementia care and nursing care. Respite care is also available for elderly people or those that need extra support following an operation or illness. While regular carers take a well-earned break from the demanding duties of being a full-time carer, our team are on hand to help. This type of care is available to keep the recipient at home and without disturbing their routine or taking them from their familiar surroundings. The person you look after will receive expert care at home instead of at a care home.
Caring for another person can be physically and mentally demanding, and much more than purely handling the day-to-day tasks. Especially when caring for long periods at a time, the emotional strain can take its toll. Respite care is there to provide your main carer with a respite while ensuring your care needs are met. The types of respite care available will ensure that those receiving care will have their requirements met by our expert carers and management team.
