Live-in respite care provides all of the support the person needing care requires whilst their family carer focuses on their own health, wellbeing, hobbies or projects.
Many family carers often feel guilty about needing a break, viewing their caring role as a labour of love, but it’s important to recognise that providing day-to-day care is physically and emotionally demanding. By taking some time to restore their own physical and mental strength, a family carer can continue to care for longer, and give of their best both for the person who needs care and themselves.
Because our respite care is provided in the person’s own home it seamlessly transitions the care provision from a family carer to our live-in carer and vice versa, whilst the person who needs care and support remains in their familiar and comfortable environment, alongside any pets that they have.
It is highly personalised, flexible and dignified support that enables the person who needs care to enjoy new opportunities and perspectives, find renewed purpose and motivation, and enjoy the companionship of our live-in carer. For a family carer, it provides the reassurance of knowing that the person they care for is in safe hands whilst they take some much-needed time for themselves.
You can’t pour from an empty cup, which is why our live-in respite care is so important to enable family carers to restore and rejuvenate themselves whilst the person they care for receives expert support.
