We recognise that taking care of a loved one can at times be both emotionally and physically tiring. To provide the very best care, you need to ensure you’re taking care of yourself.
Here at Unique Senior Care, we understand the importance of having access to high-quality respite care. We want to ensure you can take a break, secure in the knowledge your loved one is in safe and professional hands. Whether it is just a few hours off to go shopping or 24-hour care while you take a well-earned break, we can help.
We provide one-to-one at-home respite care for seniors, allowing you to take the break you need while being safe in the knowledge that your loved one is being cared for in their home by trained, qualified and caring professionals. We will mirror the current care that is in place – whether it’s round-the-clock assistance, regular homecare support or occasional companionship visits. This isn’t just an option for summer holidays: it can be used when unexpected circumstances arise, such as carer illness, family commitments, or if you just need to recharge your batteries.
Respite care can also provide a beneficial change to the person who is being cared for, offering them the chance to meet new people and vary their routine slightly. It is also a good way of trying out in-home care services, giving your elderly relative a sense of what visiting care involves, in case you need to use it more regularly in the future.
If you’re considering respite care, why not speak to one of our team to find out more about how we can support you and your loved one.
