What is respite care?

Respite care offers temporary support for when your normal carers are not available.

Respite care is a temporary arrangement where a caregiver provides support and assistance to individuals usually cared for by a family member. It offers a break to the primary caregiver while ensuring the loved one receives necessary care. It can be provided at home or in a care facility, ranging from hours to weeks. The goal is to prevent caregiver burnout and promote well-being.

At Nation Home Care, we understand the importance of providing respite care to individuals in various circumstances. Our respite care services are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Some common situations where people may require respite care include:

After an accident
Hospital discharge
Recovering from surgery
Covering a regular carer
Specialist care needed
