Our respite and response team support individuals with a life-limiting illness at home.  There are two main aspects to the service we provide:

·        Respite - this service affords carers time to attend to their own needs, reconnect with friends and family, or simply take time out from their caring role.  Your loved one will be cared for in their own home by one of our experienced healthcare assistants for up to three hours.

·        Response – this service can facilitate a palliative discharge home from hospital whilst social care is being put into place, this can reduce someone’s stay in hospital and support their preferred place of care.  We can also respond to a patient’s deteriorating condition, allowing them to remain at home.
