Short term respite Live in carers can cover emergencies, holidays or support temporary care needs
Short term 24/7 care can be helpful for a variety of reasons, we are often asked to provide extra homecare support those who are coming home from hospital or out of a care home after a period of sustained care – this is often just called respite care
Short term live in care is also frequently requested by family members who find themselves as the main carer to a relative or loved one and for many reasons may need to arrange suitable alternative living in carer for peace of mind or to provide a respite period.
Providing ongoing care for a loved one can certainly be challenging – and, at times, exhausting. If you are a full-time or part-time carer and would like temporary respite from your duties, then 24 hour care, sleep over cover and much longer periods of help can be arranged for you. For some, our short term respite services provide the space they need to have the essential period of time needed to recharge their batteries. Many decide to take a short holiday with friends or relatives. For others, this respite may provide the time they need to help cope with a difficult problem, situation or commitment, such as a planned hospital operation or family commitments far from home.
Regardless of the situation, our short term respite service guarantees continuity of care for the person you are caring for. Our carers will listen closely to your preferences to ensure that all duties are carried out exactly as you would like them to be.
After you call us for a quick friendly discussion, we would like to come and meet you and the person you are caring for to find out all about them. We work hard to make sure that our short term live in care services are wholly focused on our service user’s emotional and physical needs, and want to work closely with you to make sure that the small things that make all the difference are known to, and noted by, our very highly trained, caring and professional staff.
We would try to maintain the individual’s routine that has already been established by you. This may include maintaining regular activities and interests, whatever they are, so that any disruption is kept to an absolute minimum and your return to the home after the respite has ended is a seamless as it could possibly be.
