Let us help give you a break
Select service to view information
If you are one of the millions of people in the UK who are effectively ‘unpaid’ carers, you may be visiting a family member as part of your busy daily schedule or perhaps have a relative living with you either temporarily or permanently.
It’s vital to have a break. You need time to look after yourself so as they don’t begin to resent the hugely valuable support you’re providing whilst, at the same time, feeling guilty about the prospect of leaving their loved-one for a period of time.
We realise how demanding care can be and the toll it can take on your other family relationships. To support you, we can provide you with a friendly, trained, professional and well-matched carer who you can rely on to take care of your family member or friend in your absence on a short-term basis. This then lets you take a short break, recharge the batteries, spend time with partner and family to strengthen those important family bonds all the time reassured and knowing that your loved-one is being well looked after by our carers.
You may want to consider Respite care as anything from one morning or afternoon a week to a 24-hour Live-In carer for an extended period. We would initiate a meeting with both yourself and your family member and go through your normal daily regime allowing us to make sure the important details are documented in the care plan.
Many families we work with have found that Respite care is a far more preferable solution than having to make arrangements for placing their loved-one in a care home. Whilst it may only be for a relatively short-term basis, the planning, upheaval, disorientation and unfamiliar surroundings this brings with such a move are often outweighed by the benefits of maintaining the ‘status quo’. Our solution allows the customer to stay in their own home and helps them keep their same familiar routines.
All our experienced and well-matched Carers undertake a training course which includes food hygiene and nutrition. This enables us to provide support and knowing what nutrition is required.
We can assist our customers going out to the shops, carrying bags and putting the groceries away at home or do the shopping without the customer being present to either get their weekly shop just the essentials. We can again incorporate these tasks within the agreed care plan.
Book a complimentary consultation and assessment with your local office to learn more about how we can help provide the tailored service you’d like for your loved-one in their own home.
