​Respite Care

Respite care is available for individuals who need short term care to enable a full time carer to have a rest or holiday, or in the event that the carer themselves becomes ill temporarily. This can be from one week to as long as a couple of months.

Some care homes have rooms specifically reserved for respite care; other homes only offer this service if there is a vacant room available. Respite care can be provided as a one off stay or for more frequent stays.

Respite care also enables people to try ‘the lived experience’ of being in a care setting and deciding whether they need care on a permanent basis.
