Respite care

Temporary homecare: take a break with our professional respite care service

We understand that caring for a loved one is exceptionally rewarding, but can also be physically and emotionally exhausting. Breaks and being able to attend Christmas holidays with family are vital to the wellbeing and quality of life of the friends and family members who provide primary care. Also, private carers and agency carers who may be looking after your loved one may also need a break and temporary cover is required. This is where temporary homecare becomes a convenient and effective solution.

Our flexible respite service provides temporary homecare and ensures your loved one is in the safe hands of our expert care team whilst you or your regular carer enjoy some time away from the role as a primary carer.

Our one-to-one support is designed to slot in with the care and routines already in place and remains completely flexible to your requirements. We can step in as and when you need us, on an ongoing basis or just as a one-off. We provide a temporary homecare service to help you out whilst you take a well-earned break or spend time with family on holiday knowing your loved one is enjoying the fully tailored, personalised care you all expect.

Live-in respite care: temporary homecare service for round the clock support

Temporary homecare and round the clock support from a live-in carer who comes to stay for at least a few days, but could stay for up to a few weeks. It is designed for people with higher-level care needs who require full-time support to stay safely at home. This could be due to a person recovering from an operation or unexpected illness, or may be an individual who has specialist care requirements such as dementia, Parkinson’s disease or Multiple Sclerosis. Our expert live-in carers are trained to help with the physical, emotional and practical support that is required. They provide peace of mind that you can take a break whilst reassured that your loved one is safe and well looked after in your absence.

We understand that sometimes the need for respite care for your loved one can arise quickly and take you by surprise. You may have become unexpectedly ill, have a family emergency to attend to, you are urgently needed elsewhere, or simply an opportunity arises whereby a break or a holiday is possible at the last minute. Be assured that our care management team can respond quickly to your needs.
