Caring for a relative is a demanding role. There’s a lot to take on and it can be emotionally overwhelming as well as physically exhausting. There’s no shame in asking for a helping hand occasionally. Many carers find a break really beneficial and that’s where Ensure Care can help. We provide respite care for people in all kinds of situations and can work on either a live-in or visiting basis. We can also arrange respite care on a regular basis or as a one-off.
Arranging some respite care can give you a break and a chance to refresh. You can recharge the batteries and come back to caring for your loved one with a renewed energy. Sometimes people need to arrange respite care whilst they’re away on holiday and so one of our carers will step in for a couple of weeks. It might not even be for a prolonged period of time. Some people simply want a carer to provide support to their relative for a few nights a week so that they can get some undisturbed sleep and come back to caring in the morning. We can also provide care at very short notice if the usual carer has some kind of emergency. If you need someone there fast, we can arrange care within 24 hours.
Respite care gives you the opportunity to take a step back, for as long as you need, knowing your loved one is in safe, professional hands. All our respite care clients receive the same level of high quality care as our regular clients, meaning you can relax whilst your relative is well looked after.
