Looking after a loved one is incredibly rewarding, but we all need a break to look after ourselves. That’s why we offer respite care to support you and your family to have regular breaks away from the home. We can come in daily or weekly to take a little pressure off you.
Respite care is an umbrella term used for any type of care provided when a primary caregiver takes regular breaks from the person they normally care for. The care is still provided in the home of the person requiring care – nothing else changes, only the caregiver.
Our respite care is for regular support – delivered in your home by our carers trained in our exclusive Academy. It’s care that is tailored to each client. Whether you need continuation of your normal care such as personal care.
Everybody needs a break at some point, but if you are the primary caregiver to a loved one, friend or neighbour who relies on you can seem almost impossible. Respite care was developed as a service purely for this reason, to enable primary caregivers the opportunity to have a regular break knowing that a care professional has stepped into their shoes.
Respite care is provided at home so the person needing care can continue to do everything they usually do while their carer has a regular break.
Crisis care is a level of care needed if an emergency occurs; perhaps your main carer is temporarily absent unexpectedly or you need support after time in hospital?
We support you to make life easier.
Why choose respite or crisis home care?
When you choose respite care, our carers come prepared to slot into your normal routine – they’re there to reassure you and work with you to provide the specific support you need.
Crisis care services can be a short term regular arrangement to get you back to health or to help readjust to daily life after an illness. Some people opt for a Live-in carer when recovering from illness or an operation to give them peace of mind that a professional carer is with them 24/7.
We treat all our clients with compassion, respect and patience and our carers are trained to high-quality standards so you know you can trust us.
Respite care can be a lifeline for family caregivers and their loved ones. This type of home care typically involves short-term or temporary caregiving visits. These visits make it possible for family caregivers to take time away from unpaid caregiving duties—without compromising the quality of care received by their loved ones.
At Marigold Care®, we know how difficult caring for a loved one can be. We also know the positive difference respite care can make. If you provide care to a spouse, parent, or grandparent and you need outside assistance, our caregivers are ready to lend a helping hand.
The NHS describes respite care as: “Taking a break from caring, while the person you care for is looked after by someone else. It lets you take time out to look after yourself and helps stop you from becoming exhausted and run down.”
