Breaks for Carers

by Renfrewshire Carers Centre ( Health & Social Care Services )

Getting a break can be difficult for Carers. It is important that you have regular breaks - be it for an hour, a day, or a week, so that you can recharge your batteries and have time out - just for you.

There are many ways you can get a break: Residential respite. Day care. Home based care. Befriending. Groups. Shared care.

If you are unsure about what is best for you we can tell you about the options available to help you decide.

In the Centre we have several respite services:

Home based sitting service - Our workers will come into your home, take over your caring role and let you have time for yourself.

Befriending - Our volunteers offer companionship to the person you are caring for.

One off requests - We provide cover (such as medical appointments or
special occasions).

ADHD group respite- Parent Carers and their families looking after a young person aged 8-18 years old with ADHD get a regular break from their caring role through weekly support groups. The young people are also supported to take part in activities in their local community.
