Carers' Breaks and Respite Care
Respite care means taking a break from caring, while the person you care for is looked after by someone else. It lets you take time out to look after yourself and helps stop you becoming exhausted and run down. There are lots of respite care options available.
Moving into a care home is a big decision and it can cost a lot of money. Before choosing a care home for you or someone you know, it’s worth considering all of the options.
