Receive a free consultation to discuss or arrange respite care

Arrange care. Are you a caregiver? Do you need someone to take care of your loved one/client while you take a break? Whether they need specialist care (dementia, alzheimer’s etc) or if they are in need of companionship or help around the house (cooking, cleaning, taking the bins out, mobility support), we’ve got you covered! Get in contact with us to arrange care!

Discuss care. We aren’t only here to arrange care, we are also on hand to answer any questions you have. If you’re not fully sure what you or your loved one need and just want to clear up a few questions, please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us. We are here to help you.

Areas we cover

What is Respite Care and why is it important?

Respite care is a form of short term, temporary care, available as an option for primary caregivers who need to take a break from their duties. We all know that caring for someone can be physically, mentally and sometimes even emotionally demanding. It’s important that you take a break from time to time in order to remain motivated and to continue to give the very best care you can. The reasons for seeking out respite care include:

  1. The need for a short holiday
  2. Illness
  3. Family emergencies

It’s completely normal for life to get in the way of your care duties. It’s natural for you to want to take a break as well. Which is why we would like to offer you our help. We have experienced and qualified caregivers on hand to help where necessary. Need a short holiday? Too sick to get out of bed? Have a family emergency that needs to be sorted out? We’ve got you covered on all bases.

What does a respite carer do?

A respite carer will do everything that you would do on a day to day basis. Our staff are trained in:

  • Personal care (Toileting, showering and dressing)
  • Medication reminders and administration
  • Companionship
  • Cooking meals and food shopping
  • Mobility support
  • General house keeping duties and home help (including cleaning clothes)
