Home Respite Care Service

What does it do?

This service provides carers with the opportunity to take regular breaks from their caring role. Care staff visit the home and spend time with
the client whilst the main carer goes out. Meals, drinks may be provided if necessary, medication prompted and assistance with personal care tasks given when necessary. The client and care worker may go out walking, shopping, etc or simply chat at home until the main carer
returns. The family will see the same carer on each visit as continuity of care is vital to encourage a positive and trusting relationship which
is supportive of the individuals’ needs.
