There may be times when you require additional reassurance to help you remain at home. This may be following discharge from hospital, or where it is not possible for your usual family member or carer to look after you.
Respite care offers family members and carers some relief from daily routines, uncertainty and stress, and can bring them a much needed short term, temporary break to help them maintain their invaluable caring role. Or, your usual carer may be unable to look after you because of illness.
You may consider that the only option is admission to a care home to help you remain safe, when you would rather remain at home.
Why Choose Respite Care?
Our Respite Care Service offers you the opportunity to continue to live your life, at home, as you wish. The important factor is the reassurance that comes from knowing there is someone there to support you, and care for you, for however long you wish the arrangement to remain in place.
If you feel insecure or uncertain, or your needs are complex, or you just require some support in doing everyday tasks, we can provide a service tailored to your needs. Our respite care service affords you and your family peace of mind, knowing that you are benefiting from the expert care of highly skilled care professionals, in the place where you are most comfortable.
Unlike a care home where many individuals have to be considered, our respite care is a personalised service that is tailored to the needs of each individual. You can maintain your normal routines reassured that you are being well looked after.
We understand that having someone share your home can be a very personal matter. For this reason, we take extra care to match our staff sympathetically with your situation and personality, as well as your individual needs. We also ensure that all of our care staff are fully briefed on your expectations and personal preferences.
Our Respite Care Service is based on you and your carer being able to have a good night sleep. Should you need support throughout the night, your Carer can be called upon up to three times. For those whose needs during the night are more complex, we offer a 24 hour care service. This is explained in more detail below.
24 Hour Care
Our 24 hour Care Service supports individuals who require a significant level of support throughout the day and night.
This option is also suited to those who do not have the room available for an additional person to sleep overnight and still require care, or those who would prefer not to have a carer move in with them.
We can arrange for a carer to look after your care needs during the day, and another carer to be with you throughout the night. Carers will handover at a time suitable to you. Both carers will be able to support you with any personal care requirements that you may have, as well as lending a helping hand with household chores.
