Respite & Day Care

Longlands and Roseleigh have been a providers of respite and day care for many years. Depending on circumstances, this can be arranged through your local Social Services with funding or directly with us as a private arrangement.

Reasons for needing respite care

There are many reasons why you, or the person you care for, might want or need respite care.

For you as carer

It might be that you need a break from caring to take a holiday rest and recharge your batteries or to deal with other family commitments.

For your relative

The person that you care for might need short-term specialist health care following an illness or operation, or to prevent admission to hospital. They might want to test out living in a particular care home to see if they like it before making a permanent move. They might want to take a holiday away from home, but still need to be cared for while they are away.

Why is respite care important?

Respite care allows you to take the break that you need, safe in the knowledge that your relative is getting the care that they need.

For you as carer

Caring for someone can be very demanding, taking up a lot of emotional and physical energy. Taking breaks from caring is very important, for both the carer and the person being cared for.

Finding a balance between caring and looking after yourself is not easy, particularly if you have other commitments, such as your own home, family or a job. It is vital to look after your own health too.

For your relative

Respite care can also have positive benefits for the person being cared for. In some cases it can provide specialist medical care that you are unable to provide for example, to help them recover from an operation or illness. Attending a day centre or going on a respite holiday can be enjoyable, giving your relative the opportunity to meet new people and take part in different activities.
