Respite/Short Breaks

Respite services have changed. They no longer have to mean a bed in a care home for the person cared for. They can take many forms and be used for many things, such as shopping, socialising or enjoying a hobby.

A break could be, for example:

  • A one-off occasion to recharge your batteries
  • A regular hour to yourself
  • Daytime or overnight respite
