Respite care for disabled adults and families

We know how tiring it can be to care for somebody around the clock, and that it can be hard to entrust the care of that person to others. That is why Dimensions offers personalised respite care for disabled adults and their families.

What is respite care?

Respite care means taking short-term breaks from caring for someone, whilst they get looked after by someone else. We all need a break from time to time and respite care provides just that, helping to sustain health and wellness for caregivers and the people they support.

Different types of respite care

There are lots of different types of respite care options available. They range from getting a volunteer to sit with the person you look after for a few hours, to a short stay in a care home, so you can go on holiday.

The main types of respite care are:

  • Daycare centres
  • Home care from a paid carer
  • Short stay in a care home
  • Getting friends and family to help
  • Respite holidays
  • Sitting services
