Respite care is an essential element of the support provided to the families of older relatives needing care in the home. The welfare of both carer and patient are of paramount importance if the proper support is to be given to an older loved one and respite care can offer a welcome boost to the spirits of those involved.
Round the Clock Care
Being a family carer can be time consuming and in some cases, depending on the circumstances, quite physically demanding, and often a 24 hour a day responsibility. Everyone’s needs are unique and at Castle Homecare, we understand this, which is why we tailor all of our services to the care requirements of every individual.
Trained, professional carers can visit for a few hours a week to allow those providing care to have a little time for themselves and recharge their energy levels. By scheduling a care plan, families are able to organise their own lives whilst providing the very best care and attention they can to their loved one.
Our commitment is to work to help people remain in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of their own home as they age. The dignity that is retained by an older loved one when they are able to stay in their own house is so important to their emotional well being and being kept safe and comfortable there by a carer with a familiar face is priceless to their feelings of independence and sense of stability.
