Respite care is the provision of short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members.
Carpenders Care can provide a planned programme of care visits, for a few hours through to a few weeks, for families and those providing unpaid care.
Even though many families take great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite.
Respite provides the much needed temporary break from the often exhausting challenges faced by the family caregiver, giving the caregiver an opportunity to take a break or holiday, relax and recharge.
Respite has been shown to help sustain family caregiver, with health and wellbeing benefits. This is where Carpenders Care can help.
