What is Respite Care?

Respite care means taking a break from caring, while the person you care for is looked after by someone else. A respite care service is provided to the person you care for, to temporarily replace the care you would otherwise give them. 

This lets you take time out to look after yourself and rejuvenate which helps to stop you becoming exhausted and sapped. What works best will depend on your circumstances and those of the person you care for. 

Different types of Respite Care

Respite care can come in many forms that range from getting a volunteer to sit with the person you look after for a few hours, to a short stay in a care home so you can go and take care of yourself or on holiday or, a paid carer could visit them at their home to look after them.

Others include:

Help at home from a paid carer.

If you care for someone and need more time for yourself, you can arrange help from home by a paid carer for them. This is also called homecare.

It might be regular (for example, one day a week so that you can work, study or have a day off) or for a short period, such as a week, so you can take a holiday.

If the person you care for needs 24-hour supervision, you can arrange live-in care.

Arrangements could be made for the person you care for to attend an activity group or day centre once a week, to give you a regular break from caring.
