In-Home Respite Care Service in Wakefield
Our local home-based respite care support provides primary carers looking after an elderly person or an adult with a disability – often a family member or a friend - with short-term relief, giving them the chance to take time for themselves, or catch up on routine appointments and tasks. As a primary carer, you take pride in caring for a loved one, and are happy to provide the required support that enables them to live and be cared for within the comfort and familiarity of their own home.
At Academy Care in Wakefield, we understand that providing full-time care on your own can be overwhelming, both emotionally and physically, as you balance care with life’s other responsibilities. Using our in-home and emergency respite support service ensures that you are better able to care for yourself and loved one.
Our respite support service is individually tailored to relief primary carers, giving them the opportunity to get a much-deserved break. We will take the time to learn your routines, likes and dislikes, wishes, preferences and needs before planning a programme of care visits - from a couple of hours a week, to weeks at a time.
Our respite care has numerous advantages, such as:
Provides the primary carer with some much-deserved time off either to run errands, go shopping, take care of themselves or just to get some much-needed rest.
Gives the individual being cared for a chance to chat with another friendly face.
Provides complete peace of mind
Can be scheduled as and when needed
Helps manage the stress and toll on primary carers health
Provides support for both the individual receiving care and their loved one
Support for long term and complex conditions
We provide respite care and support across a range of long term and complex health and medical conditions. This includes neurological, acquired brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.
Regardless of your needs and requirements, our respite support service is completely bespoke; from daily visits - including multiple visits per day to live-in 24-hour care.
