Disabled and Elderly Respite Care Services
Respite care and holiday break support for family members and carers of the elderly or disabled is a very valuable and much underrated service, carers and family members rely heavily on regular and reliable respite care to not only allow them to recharge their own batteries but also to give the disabled or elderly member a break, change of scenery and a new location.
Respite care covers a broad range of disabilities including dementia and those with all manner of physical and mental disabilities. Respite can be in the form of short breaks for family members or the disabled or elderly person or longer breaks in care homes or others providing short-term residential care for a single night, a couple of days or a week or so.
