What is respite care?
Respite care provides you or your loved one with continuation of care provided at home for shorter periods of time when the usual carer or family member is not available. The main carer may be going on holiday, may be recovering from accident or illness or may simply require a much-needed break. There may be a family emergency or other commitments to attend to. Respite care can also be used to provide additional short-term specialised support.
At Elite Livein Care, we appreciate the physical and mental demands that can be placed on family members caring for an individual for a long period of time. Respite care can help family members or carers take some time off for themselves.
In those circumstances, Elite carers will ensure that your loved one is still receiving their usual care plan and that their day-to-day requirements are still being met, for however long is required.

What does respite live-in care involve?

by Mr Singh - Posted on 22 December 2020
I have been a client since January 2020. All I can say is the carers, office staff and management are exceptional. The carers are lovely and they are always understanding. The office staff are always polite over the phone, and if I have any issues, they sort it out for me. The management are amazing, they always call in to check on me. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone that needs care.
