Respite care is available to support families and carers looking after people with complex needs. While carers provide a huge amount of care willingly to support those they care for they do sometimes need a little time out.
Time out might be spent on attending an activity, doing necessary tasks or just to have time to yourself. Respite care like this can help carers re-energise themselves so they can continue to provide care.
Respite care can either be provided at home for short periods where a person is unable to leave the home or for up to a full day in the Reg Hopkins Centre (transport and meals provided).
If your family might benefit from this care please contact Julie Tomkins or Chris West on 020 8759 0453
