Different Types Of Respite Care
From short stays to longer periods, respite care can take many different forms. However, no matter the type of respite care required, sharing responsibility for providing social care and being able to take a break from caregiving is an essential part of providing for the care needs of your loved one.
We have a range of different respite care options to suit your individual requirements. We can arrange for carers to cover a single weekend, regular weekends or short breaks, as well as longer breaks – whatever is required. Some clients may also wish to have a carer for a trial period prior to arranging a longer break.
Your Respite Live-in Carer will provide the same level of support that you do while you are providing regular care. This can include providing daily social care, such as help with dressing and undressing, aiding with showering or washing and providing assistance in the bathroom, such as toileting or hair care.
Our Respite Live-in Carers can also provide assistance with general housework during their stay, such as helping with cooking and cleaning, going shopping or doing laundry. Carers can also help with social activities and outings, giving you a change of scenery when needed.
A Respite Live-in Carer is able to provide more specialist care, such as Alzheimer’s or palliative (end-of-life) care. This often includes working with other healthcare professionals to ensure the client is receiving the best possible care to suit their personal Care Plan
In addition, our dedicated Respite Live-in Carers are able to provide the emotional support and companionship that your loved one would have become used to receiving from their regular carer. This ensures that both relatives and the regular carer have peace of mind and can confidently enjoy their time away.
