Carers need support too

Caring for a loved one is rewarding, but it also has its challenges. Taking regular breaks is a great way for carers to recharge their batteries, avoid burnout and invest in other areas of their life.

To make this possible, we provide flexible respite services: an opportunity for family members to take some time out from their caring responsibilities, knowing their loved one is well supported.

Support for you and your carer

Flexible respite care, when you need it

You can take respite care in a way that suits you, whether it's a few hours a week, overnight or a whole weekend.

Short term support you can trust

Our professional and friendly home care workers can assist with personal care, domestic tasks, transport or provide companionship.

In your home or out in the community

We offer respite care in the comfort of your home, or out in the community doing enjoyable activities.

Help when the unexpected happens

Did something pop up which you didn't plan ahead for? We'll provide home care so you don't have to stress.

Regular weekly respite care

We can provide regular support so your carer has time to shop, run errands, attend appointments or take a break.

Evening and overnight stays

We can support you in the evenings or over a couple of nights, if your carer has other commitments.

Care that’s tailored to you

Respite care is much more than just holding down the fort. We take a personal approach to your care by genuinely listening to you, then building a plan based on your individual circumstances – for as little or as long as you need.

We base our care on what your family needs, whether it’s a few hours each week to do the shopping, a weekend off here and there, or enough time to take a well-earned holiday.

We also carefully match you with experienced staff who suit your needs and personality. As locals from the community, our home care workers take the time to get to know you, so you can feel comfortable in their care.
