Recharge yourself through respite
Caring for a loved one can be mentally and physically draining. In fact, if you don’t take a break occasionally, it may lead to a deterioration in the relationship. Our client’s family who decide to take some time off from caring for their loved ones tell us that they return to their caring role fresher and with renewed enthusiasm. The time away can often strengthen their relationship with the person they care for. Blyth Valley Disabled Forum can take on the responsibility of care from you for as long as you need, ensuring that the transition for you and your loved one is as seamless as possible.
Our respite home care services include:
Respite care at home:
We can help you while you provide care, supporting with housekeeping tasks, such as dusting, laundry, cleaning bathrooms and kitchens, and cooking. Alternatively, we can look after your loved one and organise an activity with them, or even just a relaxing pampering session, while you and your family have a break or go out.
Enjoy a precious day out with your loved one while we take the pressure off you. Whether you have a family event that you’d like to go to, or if you simply want to get out of the house and do something different, we’ll help your loved one to get ready, arrange transport and ensure all their needs are met during the day.
Sitter Service and Companionship:
If you need to go out during the day, or in the evening, we’ll step in to take care of your loved one. Companionship is central to this service, whether your loved one would enjoy sharing a hobby, or a friendly chat while catching up with a favourite TV programme.
It may seem impossible to take time away but here at Blyth Valley Disabled Forum we can arrange an appointment with one of our co-ordinators to create the ideal respite package to meet the needs of your loved ones while you take time to recharge.
