Respite care at home

We provide complete respite care that allows carers to take a break free from worry, and gives those being cared for one-to-one support in their own homes. Our respite carers provide all-round care tailored to your needs. From sitting with you for half-an-hour once a week to providing full-time live-in care to cover holidays, you can trust us to fit in with existing routines and keep life on an even keel.

What respite care can include

We will arrange to cover everything regular carers normally provide. That could include, for example:

  • Personal care such as washing and dressing
  • Continence care
  • Help with mobility
  • Help with taking medicines
  • Food and drink preparation
  • Trips out
  • Night-time support
  • Household tasks
  • Feeding pets

And, of course, simply being there to give companionship and emotional support.

A break for you

When you are being cared for by a partner or other close family, respite care gives you the chance to see fresh faces and connect with a wider world. You can decide how you want to spend the time, maybe picking a favourite activity or just enjoying conversation with someone different.

A break for carers

No matter how much you love the person you are caring for, being a carer is physically and mentally draining and can leave you feeling isolated. Let us step in, so you can recharge your batteries and come back refreshed and able to keep giving your best. Your loved one will be in good hands.

Regular respite care arrangements

We can put ongoing respite care arrangements in place to give carers and those they care for valuable breathing space on a regular basis. Carers can be confident in making plans to go out, meet up with friends, or simply enjoy quiet time free from responsibility.

Respite care for holidays

If regular carers are going on holiday, our service means you can stay in the comfort of your own home rather than having to spend the time in residential care. Whatever arrangements you normally have, we can copy - long hours or short visits, night stays, or 24-hour live in care.

What respite care costs

The cost of respite care depends on the level of service needed. We will provide expert advice and clear pricing, so you can decide what will work best for you. We can also advise on social care funding.

Occasional respite care

Our respite service is flexible. If you only need us every now and then, that’s fine. We’re happy to step in as and when needed, and can often help out at short notice, such as when a regular carer is ill.

Arrange a respite care consultation

The best way to see how our respite care service could work for you is to arrange for a free care consultation. One of our senior staff members will visit you at a time that is convenient to you and discuss your care and wellbeing needs, and advise on the most suitable options and costs.
