Respite Residential Care

Respite residential care covers a maximum 28 days (per year) from the day of certification, paid fully by social security if the care and support criteria are met. It can be taken in units of days or a whole month, with prior arrangement with the care home. This is available in both the Jubilee and Connaught dependent on the level of personal care requirements.

Respite is aimed primarily at individuals that are already cared for within their own home by a full-time carer. Respite is a short term care package that enables the individual to be looked after in the absence of their carer, or enables the individual to recover sufficiently to move back to their home after a period of ill health or social/personal crisis.
