Whilst our care is always centred on the individual most needing it, we understand the importance of caring for the carer. Our care team always seek to look after a spouse or partner during normal care activities, even if it’s just making them a cup of tea. But longer term, respite care is vital; the job of carer can often get a little harder each day. Respite care creates that all-important time ‘off duty’, helping the primary carer recharge and maintain their own independence and identity.
Respite care can help provide a regular ‘time off’ session for the carer or a more lengthy period of time away, safe in the knowledge that the person being cared for is safe and well looked after.
