How long can a break last?
A break from caring for someone can last anything from a few days to several weeks or more. Everyone’s situation is different: you might be delivering 10 hours of care a week, or round-the-clock care for more than 50 hours every week.
So, naturally, the length of a period of respite away from caring can vary significantly from carer to carer. The length of the break might be decided by you, or circumstances like a sudden illness could mean it’s less certain.
Whatever your circumstances, we can help by providing respite care for as long as you need, on a basis that suits you and your loved ones.
What is respite care?
Caring for a loved one can be physically and mentally demanding, and much more than purely handling the day-to-day tasks. Especially when caring for a loved one for long periods at a time, the emotional strain can take its toll.
With respite care, a trusted and trained carer steps in to care for your loved one while you have a break. It means you can have some personal time before returning home, fresh and renewed. Your chosen carer is there to do all the things you normally do. They can live in the home with your loved one or attend on a visiting basis – your tailored plan for care is completely up to you.
We all deserve a break from care due to various reasons and stress is the biggest reason. Respite Care could be the right care for you.
