As an informal or family carer most of your time and energy is spent caring and supporting a loved one. It is important for you to take regular breaks by using respite care so that you can enjoy a rest, take a break and recognise the importance of taking time out for yourself.
It can be hard to let someone else care for your loved one, but respite care is vital to your well being. Getting some time to yourself will help you to retain your own sense of identity, you can have the time to re-charge, and feel like you are also living your life to the full.
We will support you with respite care whilst you go out and meet friends, have a holiday, or just go and have some space to yourself.
