Everybody needs some time for themselves, even more so when they care for someone else. This is where respite care can be integral to you and your carer’s routine.

Respite Care

Respite care is a temporary arrangement offered by our expertly trained carers for numerous care types including assisted living, residential care, dementia care and nursing care. It is also available for elderly people or those that need extra support following an operation or illness, or while their regular carer takes a well-earned break from the demanding duties of being a full time carer.

Caring for another person can be physically and mentally demanding, and much more than purely handling the day-to-day tasks. Especially when caring for long periods at a time, the emotional strain can take its toll. Respite care is there to provide your main carer with a break while still ensuring your care needs are met.

Respite care can either be provided through:

  • Live-in care – where the carer lives in your house, offering support and company day and night
  • Visiting care – if you need some extra support for a just a few hours each day or each week

You might also need to arrange short-term care if you have to attend a family emergency or other commitments. Respite care ensures that the person you are supporting always has someone there to help them if ever you’re not around.

What does a respite carer do?

Your chosen respite carer is there to do all the things you normally do. They can live in your home or attend on a visiting basis – your care plan is tailored completely to your needs. An individual support plan is created before any care commences to ensure our carers meet all of your requirements.

Your carer’s daily tasks could involve:

  • Nursing Care needs, such as catheter or continence support
  • Personal Care including dressing, showering, and toileting
  • Mobility support, helping your loved one move around the house
  • Administering medication at the correct times
  • Ongoing Companionship and emotional support
  • Cooking meals and fetching the food shopping
  • Housekeeping, including washing and drying clothes
  • Arranging visits out, for a break or to see family and friends
  • Feeding and caring for pets if you have any

Respite carers also follow the routines you or a loved one are used to. For those living with conditions such as dementia, this consistency of care is incredibly important and being a member of the Dementia Action Alliance, we’re constantly striving for the best possible support for people with dementia, helping them to follow the routine they are comfortable with.

Our respite carers all undertake extensive training either at our Centre of Excellence in Warwickshire or at one of our local visiting care branches, ensuring that they have all the skills needed to help your friend or relative feel supported in the short time you’re away.
