Individual Support Service – Short Breaks
We understand that those who care for people will sometimes need a break from caring. We also know how important it is for people to stay in their own homes and retain as much independence as possible.
That’s why we provide respite for people in their own homes, on their own terms.
What the service delivers
Respite visits for a few hours, a day, overnight or a longer break. We can also accompany people on holiday or support people with local activities, providing opportunities for carers/ family members to take a break.
We offer specialist, trained staff matched to individuals based on their needs and wishes, and we provide person-centred support in partnership with families and professionals.
Why short breaks at home?
The service provides respite for people in a place they feel most comfortable, without the need to go into external accommodation. This takes away the upheaval of traditional respite and also reduces the cost.
What is the cost?
We offer a competitive hourly rate depending on an individual assessment. Each part of the service is be priced clearly and separately so that the individual knows exactly what they are paying for.
