Respite care is the name given for a short-term break for caregivers. When you look after someone who’s needs care, it’s a 24-hour job. You need a break from time to time to look after your own needs. That’s where respite care can help.
We All Need A Break From Time To Time
Aside from emergencies, the purpose of respite care is to give a carer time off in order to avoid a burnout, to enable the caregiver to take care of necessary activities outside the home, and to ensure a health relationship between caregiver and person receiving the care.
Our short term and long term care programmes are designed to provide carers a break while minimising any stress to the client. Respite care is an essential element in the overall support that families and caregivers need.
