Our clients prefer the option of Respite care and find that it is a more favourable service than having to place their loved one in a care home or an unfamiliar environment that can create agitation and anxiety. There is planning, upheaval and unfamiliar surroundings associated with taking a loved one to a care home. Our Respite service makes it possible for our clients to have the facility to remain in their own home and stay in their well-known environments and being able to continue to conduct their same familiar routines as normal and uninterrupted.
