Home-Based Respite Care

We know that caring for a loved one is a huge investment that requires endless patience, love and perseverance. We also know it can be overwhelming at times and it can be difficult to ask for extra help. That’s why we created our home-based respite care service.

What is respite care?

Having some respite service in place will enable you to take a break, recharge your batteries and give you some time-out to catch up on hobbies and interests, run some errands or even go away for a few days with friends.

Providing family carers with a break, on your terms

This success of this service is all about ensuring you feel completely comfortable with the person who will be providing the care to your loved one, that’s why we ensure there is plenty of time for introductions with the people who we think will work best with you. However, you may change your care worker at any time, if you don’t feel they are a good fit. We pride our self in the knowledge, expertise, skill and attention we channel into laying the foundations for a robust package of care. Find out more about how we do this here.

With Bright Care you can relax knowing that a warm-hearted and well-trained member of care team is there throughout, ensuring your nearest and dearest is well looked after.


Creating a Respite Care Package That Revolves Around You

Being a private respite care provider, means that you are in the driving seat, and we will tailor our service to the needs of the person we are caring for. Whether a few hours during the day is required, overnight respite care for elderly relatives is needed, or a more comprehensive arrangement over a few days needs to be put in place, we can guide you through the process of getting something set up.

With private respite care for older people, we understand that flexibility is an important factor so we provide a service that is fully adaptable.
