At AAI Care we understand caring for a family member can be physically and mentally very demanding, requiring total commitment and selflessness. However no matter how committed you are to the relative you’re caring for, you also need to make time for yourself.
We have designed a tailor made service which can be from a few hours to several weeks away. The service aim is to give you the reassurance your relative is being looked after by one of our competent and well trained carers. This short break will enable you to take time away to recharge and return feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
However respite for carers isn’t just for when you feel you need a break, many relatives use our services when they become ill, or when they have to go into hospital and we continue to provide respite carers whilst they recuperate. Our respite services enable you to rest assured that your loved one will continue to get the care they need in their own home.
Our bespoke Respite Care service provides friendly, temporary carers to go into the homes of people affected by a range of conditions to provide short term care. Over the last 10 years we have we provided Respite Care for elderly and young people alike. As with our all of our care services the Respite support is tailored to a range of conditions – including Alzheimer’s, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), Strokes and more.
Allowing someone else to come into your home can be a tough decision, naturally there are worries over disruption to existing routines and lifestyles. We recognise the importance of planning for any temporary care. This is why clear communication is vital to ensure that your loved one’s medical and lifestyle requirements are met during your absence.
Most often emergency situations arise with little or no warning and leaves very little time to plan for emergency Respite Care. Having a group of carers, who are well trained, enthusiastic and understand their role means you can rely on us to arrange short term care in your home quickly and efficiently.
Many of our clients and their relatives use a period of respite before considering more permanent solutions, this allows them to look at whether Live-In care is the right option without having to make a long term commitment.
To ensure you have a clear picture of the price you will pay for your care, we talk through all your options. Our pricing structure is based on your specific needs and the level of support you require, which we ensure is clear and transparent with no hidden costs at the beginning enabling you to make an informed choice.
It is not an easy decision choosing the right type of Care Service, as every situation is different. To make an informed choice you need to know your options and the difference between the home care services available. If you would like to talk to someone about your needs, please contact one of our team who will be happy to come out and see you for a No Obligation assessment and costing.
