What is Respite Care?

Respite Care provides temporary relief for primary caregivers, giving them time to rest, recharge, go on holiday, or spend time with others. It can last from just a few hours to several weeks or months.

The importance of Respite Care

Why is Respite Care important?

By temporarily covering caregiving responsibilities, Respite Care promotes the well-being of caregivers, which, in turn, helps them to provide high-quality care.

Respite Care helps to alleviate guilt in care recipients who feel like they burden their primary caregiver. Knowing that your caregiver has some time to focus on their well-being can be extremely comforting.

Receiving respite care at home is less daunting than relocating to a care home.

You are cared for in the familiarity of your home, where you feel most safe and comfortable.

You remain in your local community, surrounded by friends and family.​

You receive a personalised one-to-one service.

You only pay for the care you require, providing a cost-effective alternative to a Care Home. ​

Feedback From Our Customers

Our relationship with the carer, who comes every morning, is very good. She is always on time to bathe and dress my wife. She and her manager are always very helpful and can’t do enough for us. They are wonderful people, and a credit to Clarity Home Care.
