Caring for the carers
To be an effective carer, it is important to look after your own health and well-being. This helps you to have the energy and strength required for your vital role.
If you have found yourself saying no to social events, not getting enough exercise or losing touch with your own sense of well-being because you are a carer for an older frail person or someone living with dementia, then you will benefit from accessing some respite services so you can have more time for you.
Many people do not realise there is a solution for carers. Respite care provides a temporary break for carers and the person they care for. This break gives carers the chance to attend to everyday activities, work, or go on a well-deserved break.
Southern Plus offers a range of flexible respite options to suit you and your loved one’s needs, either in-home, at one of our respite centres or short-term respite in one of our residential care homes. For more information call our friendly advisors on 1300 000 061.
