Our purpose is to provide respite care

Within our community to the growing number of adults who provide unpaid

care to a relative or friend affected by disability, age, illness or mental ill

health, who otherwise would not be able to manage without their support.

Our fully trained care support staff look after the person with care needs whilst their carer has a break from their caring responsibilities.  Carers often have health issues of their own which are aggravated by the anxiety and stress of being a full time carer to their loved ones themselves.  Our aim is to help reduce the stress and improve their health and well-being.  We provide regular weekly respite breaks lasting up to 4 hours per visit, on the same day, same time and same support worker.  Either staying in the home with the ‘supported’ person while the carer goes out or taking the ‘supported’ person out to give the carer a break.  Our objectives are to involve carers and ‘supported’ in the planning and delivery of the service, therefore providing the vital support to partners.  We also run a Day Centre twice a week where the ‘supported’ can have a fun day of activities, craft, entertainment, bingo, raffle and a cooked lunch.  The carer can have a well-earned break for 5 hours whilst they are relaxed knowing that their loved one is safe and having a good time.
