Who cares for the carer? We do.
Carefour recognises that carers need to have a break to rest and re-charge so that they can keep giving their best care. You need a trusted and reliable company like Carefour to provide respite care and support, so that whilst you are away you can truly relax as you know we are caring for your loved one as you did.
Our highly experienced and compassionate care staff are thoroughly trained and monitored and can provide as much or as little cover as you need. You can stay in touch with us to find out how things are getting on or you can leave it in our safe hands and we will give you a full report when you get back.
Tailored respite care solutions
At Carefour we’ve come to understand the simple fact that the needs of each elderly person we provide care for are truly unique. When we draw up your respite care plan we will do so with strict reference to the unique needs of the person receiving our care. Our approach to respite care ensure the person receiving the care is delivered a standard of care they’re accustomed to. You surely wouldn’t expect anything less from a professional respite care service such as ourselves.
Just who is our service for?
Our respite care service is enjoyed by elderly people with a variety of care needs. Below is a non-exhaustive list of these needs:
- Alzheimer’s care
- Physical disability care
- Palliative care
- Those in need of general day-to-day personal care services
- Those in need of night care services
- A service which begins even before you leave
The prospect of change in carer is likely a daunting one for your cared-for no matter how temporary the arrangement may be. For this reason the carer which we will appoint to your cared-for will arrive to meet up with you and your cared-for before you commence your break. This will ensure the change in carer is a smooth one for both carer and for cared-for.
Our respite care service for the elderly typically lasts a few days up to a few weeks. An initial assessment will take place to ensure the respite care plan does not neglect any of the unique needs the person you care for required assistance with.
A service you can count on!
With our service you can be assured your loved one will be cared for by the utmost trained staff. You can return to your care role fully recharged; until next time!
