Are you caring for someone and would you benefit from a few hours respite to give you a break from caring – to look after yourself, get to appointments, see family & friends, pursue your own interests?
Caring for someone can be difficult for everyone. Family carers are dealing with their own emotions and responsibilities, and doing all they can for their loved one, and may need support, advice and information as well as a break from caring.
We really hope that our advice and respite, will help you in your caring role and ensure that you feel supported and understood, and know where to go if you need help. It is vitally important that you as a Carer take care of yourself and seek help and support.

What I like about the respite visits I receive from SPDNS:
Many staff use initiative to find ways to engage my mother. These staff bring emotional energy to the relationship
There has been continuity of Paul’s carer with only a few exceptions, all very empathetic and professional
The carers are kind & compassionate. The respite I get goes a very long way to keep me well both physically and mentally. I am satisfied. Thank you
