Trusted Providers of Respite Care in Bedfordshire

Across the UK there are nearly 7 million people who are providing care for members of their family. That equates to 1 in 8 of the population looking after, for example, a child with learning difficulties, a parent in a wheelchair, or a partner with dementia. These numbers are set to grow to around 10 million in the next 30 years.

Being a carer takes a huge toll emotionally and physically, no matter how much you love the person you’re caring for. The respite care Bedfordshire Supported Housing provides for family carers allows both carers and those they care for to take a breathing space and restore their energy.

How Does Respite Care Work?

There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to respite care. The kind of respite provided will depend upon the circumstances and needs of the carer. The NHS provides a list of 6 different kinds of respite care:

  • A brief stay in a residential home (maybe after hospitalisation)
  • Day care centres
  • Home care, provided by professional carers
  • Family members or friends taking over for a few days
  • Sitting services (provided professionally and occasionally by local charities)
  • Respite holidays
