Respite provides the opportunity for you, as a carer, to have a break from your caring role.It is short term and is provided either at your home or in the community.
Respite activities can include:
leisure activities such as playing cards or going for walks
social activities such as going out for a coffee
activities in your local community
personal care tasks such as help in the bathroom.
