Care Guide - Respite care
Respite care is simply a temporary care arrangement. Our care workers will visit as scheduled during the respite break period, or stay in your home to provide live-in care.
This can be pre-arranged, or cover an emergency situation where someone needs care urgently. So if it’s a 30 minute visit or 24 hour live-in care, Caremark have a variety of options available.
Respite care can help with:
Supporting at home with household tasks
Helping with personal care
Assisting with food shopping and preparing food
Supporting recovery or convalescence following hospital discharge
Arranging appointments with healthcare professionals
Companionship including emotional and practical support
Who would benefit from Respite Care?
If a carer needs a break or is unable to carry out their usual support for any reason, we can help by providing respite care’. This can also extend to family or friends who help care for an individual, who may need to take a break out of necessity. This is sometimes essential and will help to recharge energy levels and enthusiasm.
A family providing care may have a holiday planned or a work trip organised, and need the role replaced with a carer. Knowing that loved ones and those in need are in the care of a professional Caremark care worker is a reassuring comfort.
How Caremark can help
We offer a much preferred solution to temporarily placing the person you care for in a care home. Being away from their familiar surroundings can have a negative impact on someone’s health and well-being.
Caremark’s respite care is a back-up service that enables your appointed carers or family members to enjoy a well deserved, worry free break. We can answer any questions you may have regarding respite care and how it may benefit someone you know.
Give your local Caremark office a call where a member of our friendly team will be happy to help you to assess the situation and start with those first steps. We can give you more detailed information into costs once we have established the personal requirements.
