Respite care offers a short-term package of professional care, allowing a family of friend carer to take a break and recharge. There are around 7 million people who are providing care for members of their family in the UK That’s 1 in 8 people who are offering unstinting love and support to parents, children or partners.

Full-time family carers work amazingly hard, and periods of recuperation are a necessity if they’re to maintain their role effectively. Respite is also available if carers need to go into hospital themselves for a scheduled operation. The home respite care Bedfordshire Supported Housing provides for family carers means that they can have peace of mind their loved one is being well cared for.
