We'll take care of everything for you
When we first work with you our care assistant will organise a briefing meeting to discuss in detail the normal care regime you follow for your relative or friend. Our carer can even work alongside you for a day so your loved one can get used to them and so that they can watch how you carry out your duties.
During your respite break we will then visit as scheduled, or stay in your home to provide live-in care as planned. We will regularly feedback to you and adjust our care if appropriate.
Respite care at home provides a gentler solution to temporarily placing your loved one in a care home, where they will be away from their familiar surroundings and possessions, and it may be more difficult for friends or family to visit them.
But don’t worry, we won’t be taking over
Of course our involvement doesn't mean that we're taking over your role - it's just a back-up service that will enable you to have time out to enjoy a well-earned, worry-free break.
