Aims of the Service
To provide carer respite, regardless of age, disability or illness.
To provide support for these living alone in exceptional circumstances.
Our main aim is to value carers, providing respite to give them time to themselves. Caring, though rewarding, can be isolating, exhausting and all-consuming. Carers need time to look after themselves. We can provide respite to attend appointments, socialise or rest and recuperate.
We also support people living alone in exceptional circumstances, who may be struggling with ill health, loneliness or disability.
Most referrals are made by phone, our office is open 9am - 4pm Monday to Friday and anyone can make a referral. Call us on 01851 705422.
