Respite care

At Castle Homecare we recognised the need to support and provide temporary relief to families providing care to loved ones at home. This can be done through offering a scheduled care plan of visits from our trained carers, from a few hours through to a few weeks, for families and other carers providing unpaid care to enable them to have their own time.  Respite care is an essential part of the overall support that families may need to keep their loved ones at home. The work of the family carer can often be under-supported. Being on 24-hour call can be physically, mentally and emotionally draining and can become extremely overwhelming.


We know everyone’s needs are different, so all of our services can be tailored to suit your needs. If you would like to discuss respite care and the services we offer please contact us on 01 2965304 for a chat about your requirements.
