Respite Care Services from Burley’s
Caring for a loved one is a rewarding experience, but sometimes it becomes necessary to take a short break, and this is where respite care can be extremely helpful.
People choose to take advantage of our respite care services for a number of reasons. It may be that the carer needs to take a little time out to rest, refresh their energy, and look after themselves. Sometimes they are simply unwell and need space to recuperate.
In some circumstances, the time away afforded by respite care helps carers to understand and learn more about changes that their loved one or client might be going through, especially if they have been diagnosed with dementia, which can have a profound effect on behaviour and personality. Occasionally it allows carers and loved ones to see how the experience suits them before committing to a permanent rest home.
Choosing Respite Care
It’s not always the carer who opts for respite care. Sometimes their loved ones or client chooses to have a temporary change or a break from their daily routines. Respite care can give them the opportunity to experience different routines and meet new people.
In all cases, respite care can help a carer to not feel overwhelmed by their challenges and responsibilities, ensuring their loved one or client continues to receive all the support they need.
Our respite care services are flexible and matched to your loved one's needs, whether they need a few hours, a day or a couple of times a week. We can either spend time with them in the comfort of their own home or accompany them out to the shops or places they would like to visit.
Our experienced staff offer the highest quality care and can be relied upon to offer the support, compassion and companionship needed, giving you and your loved one the peace of mind that is so important when choosing respite care.
