Respite care is a short-term care provision, often for a week or two, while your usual carer has a break. Respite breaks can be planned or unplanned depending on circumstances – it could be for a family emergency, carer illness or injury, or for a well deserved holiday or short break.
Respite care can be required after a hospital stay. Sometimes our clients are in hospital but need a Care Plan to be arranged before they can return home. We are happy to visit you in hospital to discuss your requirements. We will also liaise with your loved ones and the healthcare professionals to ensure everything is in place ready for your return.
