Respite care at home

flexible Short term care

Not every health condition requires extensive support. In lots of cases, emergency respite care could be all that’s needed to get through the hardest periods. Using short term respite care is therefore available to cater towards these needs, and this can be especially beneficial for anyone suffering from something as simple as personal ill health. Here at Promedica24, we will match you with the most appropriate live-in respite care worker who can help with your specific needs.

Respite Services at Home When you Need It Most

Staying Within familiar surroundings makes our respite services all the more effective. For the older generation, being able to call upon respite care for elderly means you can be handed the right support without the need to move into a care home. You may also require respite for children if they’ve recently been through a long stint within hospital. Either way, the overall cost of respite care will be formulated according to what’s required by each patient. Whatever the circumstances, we will make sure to supply respite care which aids a smooth recovery and comfortable transition back to health. We are especially conscious about handing this to people who may have suffered memory impairment. For example, respite care for dementia can be used for people who need extra assistance remembering which medication should be taken and when.

Overview of respite care:

  • Home from hospital – help to support the transition from hospital or care home back in to your home
  • Respite care – to give a family member or other full-time Care Worker a break

My family can’t thank Promedica24 enough for the professional care and support they gave us

My family can’t thank Promedica24 enough for the professional care and support they gave us while caring for mum for the last 11 months. All the Care Workers we had in this time cared for mum extremely well with dignity, they became one of the family.
