When looking after someone else, it's important to take time to look after yourself. Taking a break from caring stops you from becoming exhausted. It also provides a continuation of effective support for the person you care for.
What is respite care?
Respite care services give carers a break from caring. There are different types of respite care and we support many people with varying needs.
Respite care we provide includes:
- Longer-term placements at our nursing and residential services
- Stays in services with current vacancies
- Day centres that give people the chance to enjoy a day out, try a new activity or spend quality time with others
Our Referrals team can tell you about vacancies and services offering respite stays. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
