We understand that family carers may need support or an occasional break from their caring responsibilities. We provide respite care so as you, the family carer, can take a holiday, a short break or just have some time for yourself. Our respite care includes day-sitting, night-sitting and 24-hour care.
Day and night sitting service
We provide day-sitting and night-time services, thus ensuring the vulnerable need not be left alone.Our day-sitting service can include personal care (for example feeding, grooming) or social stimulation (for example recreation activities, reading) and domestic help. We can also provide an escort service, for example to and from appointments and activities in the community, such as day care. We can stay or alternatively pick up when required.
Our night sitting service includes waking nights and sleep-overs. Waking nights are used where you need assistance during the night, almost or every night. Sleep-overs are useful where you normally do not need assistance during the night, but for your peace of mind a carer sleeps at your home and is available should you need some help in the middle of the night.
