If you want to take a break from your caring duties, you can arrange respite care for the person you look after.
There are different types of care available, including:
- asking friends and family to take over your caring responsibilities
- employing a paid care worker to care for the person you are looking after in their own home
- paying for short-term support in a care home or alternative accommodation
- arranging for the person you look after to attend a day centre
