Respite Care is the provision of short-term, temporary relief to those who are caring for family members who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. It can relieve stress, restore energy and promote the necessary balance in your life.
Sometimes, when even the most loving and dedicated of carers need a break. There can be a number of reasons for this; the carers may themselves be unwell or have to be elsewhere, or may need to take a well deserved holiday. This is where Care Horizons can be of help. Without respite care services, those cared for at home would often have no option but to enter a residential facility. This can be an extremely upsetting prospect for those with dementia or learning disabilities and their family.
In these situations, Care Horizons' highly trained and experienced carers can offer care and support services on a temporary basis, be it from a couple of hours to cover a shopping trip, right up to a few weeks whilst the primary carer is away on holiday.
