Respite care at home (short term)

You may only need respite care and support for a couple of weeks because your full-time home carer is on holiday. Or maybe you are recovering from some personal ill health. Perhaps you are now looking for a carer to act as support for your wider family as a loved one reaches the end of their life. We have care workers trained for all these situations and more, providing care and support in the comfortable surroundings of home.

A helping hand at home when you need it most

Recovery from stays in hospital or unexpected illnesses is understandably easier when short term help can be arranged at home. Promedica24 can provide such respite care for periods of 2-to-6 weeks to aid a smooth recovery and comfortable transition back to health.

Everyone needs a rest from time-to-time and our respite care service offers vital temporary relief for many people (such as relatives and friends who have voluntarily taken on a carer role).

Imagine having someone trustworthy who can take over the reins so that you can enjoy a holiday or a much needed break from being a care worker. You can return feeling rejuvenated and always aware that it’s possible to call on our respite care help any time in the future.

Caring isn’t just our profession, it’s our vocation and passion; our carers are here to make life as bearable as possible at the most difficult of times. Promedica24 provides respite care near you, 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week.

Respite care for end-of-life

Respite assistance is also available for end-of-life care to support families and friends at what can be an extremely emotional and traumatic time. Our live-in care workers alleviate some of the challenging burden, managing daily support tasks in the background, allowing you to spend precious time with your loved one.

We understand short-term respite care services can often be required with just a few days’ notice. Because of this, we ensure we act as swiftly as possible. After an in-home care assessment, we can gauge care needs, draw a  shortlist of live-in carers and then place your chosen care worker(s) in the home within as little as 3-to-5 days

When selecting a care worker for you or your loved one, we don’t just select based on skills relevant to your particular health needs. We also aim to match carers to your interests, personality and lifestyle so that we can select care workers for you to choose from who are a good fit.

Overview of respite and short term care:

  • Home from hospital – help to support the transition from hospital or care home back in to your home
  • End-of-life care – to support the later stages of life
  • Respite care – to give a family member or other full-time carer a break
  • Holiday care – to provide support for a relative while the family take a much-needed holiday

What people say

I must say it was lovely to have some extra companionship. I’d devoted all of my time and attention to taking care of John so having someone else to take the pressure off me was a huge relief.
