Caring for someone can be a valuable and rewarding experience. It can also be stressful and may leave you feeling emotionally or physically tired. As a carer, you need to take the break for yourself from your caring role. These breaks are known as respite and may help relieve stress for you.
A respite break can give you time to do everyday activities and will give you the opportunity to look after yourself a bit. It can also help you to continue to provide care for the longer period.
Beyond Care offers short-term stays which are fun and inclusive environment, where you can hang out with your friends, enjoy each other’s company and build new skills during your stay.

Planning a respite care
Consider planning a break in advance. This can assist you to avoid stress build-up. It can also help to avoid waiting lists that services may have. However, emergency respite care may be available if the unexpected happens – a major illness, a bereavement or you need help at short notice.
