Flexible respite and social support

Council offers flexible respite during the day - to provide a break for carers.

Our Individual Social Support staff can keep you company - in the home or in the community.

Individual social support

A support worker can keep you company at home, help you with technology, work alongside you in the garden or support you to go out to a social event.

Flexible respite

In-home respite: provides support for carers of clients needing assisted support in the home (e.g. older people with dementia)

Community access individual: Individual specified activities outside the home providing opportunities to socialise, recreate, participate in community life, whilst also providing respite for the carer.
