Accessing Respite Care

If you are in need of a break from caring, respite care can enable you to take some time out while the person you care for is looked after by someone else. 

Caring means something different for everyone – but one thing that’s true for every carer is that you cannot keep going without a break.

Whilst having a break is doubtlessly good for you, it also means that the person you’re looking after may be able to enjoy new experiences, have a change of scene and routine and mix with other people. – Carers UK

Respite services in the home are being provided by both Crossroads Care Surrey and TuVida West Sussex (formerly known as Crossroads Care South Central).
