A guide to respite care
1. Taking a break (respite care)
If you need a break from your caring responsibilities and the person you look after can’t be left alone, there are different kinds of respite care available.
We can provide care:
- in the home of the person you care for
- in a residential or nursing home
- through activities in the community.
You may need to take time off from your caring responsibilities to go on holiday, take some regular time out, attend a healthcare appointment or take a training course.
We can also help you to plan for an emergency.
