How To Arrange Respite Care
Respite care is sometimes necessary for a number of reasons. In some cases both a carer or a person who receives care from a family member or friend may need a short break. In others, a person may be considering permanently moving to a residential home and use respite care as a way to see if it is a good fit for them.
Whatever the reasons, the need for respite care is a valid one. For individuals who require specialist care or support, a temporary stay at a care home can give them the chance to try new things and meet new people. For carers, respite care presents the opportunity for rest and recuperation before caring responsibilities resume.
