Respite Care


Supporting Your Independence

Supporting Your Independence

Respite home care is a short term flexible care service that allows for someone to be cared for within their own home by our professional carers. Respite care can be used in situations where a family carer is taking a short break from caring for their loved one. There is no set time frame for respite care however it is often for a week or two. Our respite care covers emergencies, planned holidays and more.

Each respite client has a personal care plan that considers their support needs, interests, likes and dislikes, and daily routines. We will offer companionship, care and support tailored to help you achieve personal goals and encourage social trips where possible to keep relationships with family and friends active. Whether you’ve just had an operation and need additional support or you need a helping hand at home, we have a solution. We understand that the families of those we care for can face significant emotional strain and we extend our support to you.

What Does Respite Care Entail?

Our carers are trained in a multitude of areas to provide the support you require:

  • Personal care and assisted living, such as assistance with bathing, dressing and toileting

  • Medication support, including prompts or administering medication, even the more complex prescriptions

  • Support with pain management

  • Preparing meals to suit your preference, and washing up afterwards

  • Companionship and supporting your independent living at home

  • Continence care, whether it is changing continence pads or managing a stoma or catheter

  • Help moving around the home, whether it is gentle support or hoisted transfers

  • Basic housekeeping duties

  • Running errands to collect prescriptions or food shopping

  • Accompanying you to social trips
