Brooks Care offers a respite service to all families to enable the carer to take time out
Respite care means a carer will come and look after your loved one in your own home for however long you need, to enable you to go out or to rest. This respite care could be from two hours to 24 hours daily.
Respite care can include escorting a service user to an appointment, to church or a requested outing. We already provide 24 hour care to several Service Users to enable them to continue to live in their own homes. Brooks care is able to provide a carer to stay from 22.00 hours till 7am to give care if needed or reassurance to a family these are called awake nights as the carer is awake and working. For a Service User with fewer care needs we provide sleeper nights where the carer sleeps but can be woken up to 3 times a night to give care to the Service User.
