The Respite AssociationRespite help for Carers
What does it do?
The Respite Association was born on May 16th 2001. A group of people, all with first hand experience of the stress put on carers, had come to realise that there was very little support available for those caring for loved ones. That small but committed group of people decided that the best way forward was to create an organisation whose sole aim was to care for the carers by providing respite. When you are caring for someone the task can be overwhelming. You can be on ‘duty’ for 24 hours a day for seven days a week with no breaks or holidays. This is too much to ask of anyone.
Who it is for?
Many of the people who are at home caring for loved ones are forced to live on very limited incomes. It is these people that we are working to help.
