What is Respite Care?

Respite care is a service that provides temporary care which enables carers to have a break from their regular demands. This type of care allows your loved ones to remain at home without disturbing day-to-day routines, all whilst still receiving the care they need. Abbots Care offers respite for the elderly, children from age 5 and up or those who require extra support with a disability, illness or following an operation.

The Abbots Care approach to Respite Care

Our fully trained carers and nurses can care for a wide range of healthcare conditions and are all signed up to the Care Commitment. Whether you need domiciliary care, overnight care or specialist dementia care, we’re on hand to provide the support you need.

Respite care can be provided through either live in care or visiting care:

Live in care – This temporary care option provides your loved one with dedicated, around-the-clock care from one of our professional and compassionate care workers throughout the day and night.

Visiting care Whether it’s popping in for a friendly chat or helping with day-to-day tasks, visiting care provides extra support for a couple of hours a day or each week depending on the needs of your loved one.

You might also need short term care due to a family emergency or if something unexpected comes up. Respite care from Abbots Care ensures your loved ones always has someone there to support them, even when you’re not around.
