Respite Care

What does it do?

Respite care is another name for relief or short-term care. It can give you and/or your carer(s) a break. For a short period only, respite care can be arranged in a care home.
We can arrange a short stay on a regular basis so that you may have a set time at home and then a set time within a care home. 

Who it is for?

We provide respite care and support for people with disabilities and their carers.
