Respite care

What is the Respite Care?

The respite care for elderly or children allows main carers or family members to take time away from their daily care duties to have a few hours break or to go on holiday, giving them the peace of mind to relax and enjoy, knowing that their loved ones will continue to receive the care and support they need.

No matter how many hours of respite care you need, shorter or longer term, the carers that we introduce to you are carefully selected to match the personality, needs and preferences of your loved ones, to provide company , specific care for particular physical or mental medical conditions, administration of medication, support with household and social activities etc.
