If you are a family carer you are one of 7 million people in the UK who provide ongoing care and support to and elderly or disabled partner, parent, or child. As a professional care provider we know what hard work caring is and periods of rest and recharging are an absolute necessity.

Bedfordshire Supported Housing provides elderly respite care in Bedford. We offer short-term packages of professional care to allow carers to take a break or attend hospital for scheduled medical procedures. Our goal is to put respite in place that means family carers have peace of mind their loved one is well looked after.

How Does Elderly Respite Care Work?

There’s no fixed shape for respite care; it’s designed to fit the needs of carers and those they care for. At BHS we design a bespoke care package for each client, dependent on their requirements and circumstances. The NHS lists six types of respite care:

  1. Visits to day care centres
  2. Family of friends stepping in when needed
  3. Sitting services offered by charities or volunteers
  4. A short stay in a residential home – usually after hospitalisation
  5. Respite holidays
  6. Professional home respite care

BHS has provided elderly respite care in Bedfordshire for more than a decade. We always begin with an initial assessment, and risk assessment, so that we can be sure to offer the appropriate care package to clients during the respite period. BHS carers work in partnership with families and our elderly clients to ensure that the care is bespoke and fulfils all their needs. Our home respite care services include:

  • Hourly Care. Providing scheduled respite periods throughout the week. Trained BSH carers make home visits in order to clean, cook, administer personal care, to provide companionship.
  • Live-in Care. A respite option for more sustained breaks from caring. A professional carer moves into a client’s home and provides 24-hour support and care.
  • Sitting Service. If you are concerned about your loved one waking in the night, a BHS carer will ‘sit’ in the house and be immediately available if needed.
