Caring for anyone can be draining, and if they have complex needs it can be as hard and as stressful as a full-time job.
"There can be no greater wealth than to rest with peace of mind"
Short-term care (also known as respite care) provides families and other caregivers a break from the responsibility of caring for a loved one.
Taking time out from caring is important for everyone. It can help you feel rested and re-energised, it can give you the space to give more attention to other parts of your life and it can give you time back to spend with others.
If you're burned-out, drained or not focussed, others may hide their needs to feel less of an inconvenience or to try and help. While this is only natural, problems may develop especially over a long-period.
We can give you the support you may need to reclaim time for yourself - we've got you covered for a few hours or a few weeks.
That family trip you would love to go on, off you go and we'll be here when you get back. An afternoon free to go sort out that thing you've been trying to get to, we'll pop-in so you can go get it done.
We can give you the care you need whenever you need it, because our care-plans are tailored to suit you and can change as your needs change. Speak to us to discuss your situation and we'll make a plan for you.
