Live-in Respite Care

Couple talking about live-in care

Respite Carer

A Live-In Respite Carer can offer a much-needed break from caring. The majority of people being cared for in their own homes are cared for by husbands, wives, sons, daughters or close relatives, who freely give up their time and often their jobs to care for their loved ones.

Caring for a loved one often means the carer has to juggle time every day between providing full time hands-on care to one or more people while still providing for their own home and work situation. For most people it is second nature, but it can become exhausting and debilitating, eventually having a negative impact on the informal carer's health and when their own health suffers, their ability to care as they would wish is likely to diminish too.

Sometimes a week away can make all the difference. To be able to take a break gives the opportunity to revitalise, relax and recharge the batteries. It allows the carer to come back to the role refreshed and better able to manage, so both the carer and the cared for will benefit from the period of respite.

For family members and carers providing care for a person with high dependency care needs, a short-term care respite package must be appropriate, safe and secure, offering peace of mind and enabling them to have a relaxing, worry-free break or holiday. 

Able Community Care recognises that for a devoted family carer to have a week or two away, they need to know that their loved one is safe and properly looked after.

Perhaps the person being cared for has recently received emergency care, or come home following hospital discharge. Our home care services can offer that extra care needed at a difficult time. Please call us on 01603 764567 to find out more.

The benefits of our service

A Live-in Respite Carer service offers 24 hour care in the comfort and familiar surroundings of your own home can be provided by Able Community Care.

Respite care can also be provided when the carer themselves is unable to provide care for a short period of time, perhaps because of illness or other commitments, such as work or jury duty. When this occurs, short term respite care from a live-in carer allows them the time off they need before returning to their caring role.

Live-in carers from Able Community Care will carry out the domestic work in the home, assist with personal care and provide companionship in the carer’s absence, all tailored to the needs of each individual and their home, a truly personal service.
