Respite Programme

It can be exhausting if you are caring for and supporting a loved one and so important that you take care of yourself and have enough time to rest and recuperate.

Aspen Care offers a respite programme that enables you to have a break from a minimum of 1 week, in the safe knowledge that your loved one’s usual care routine is being maintained.

At Aspen we treat our clients and our carers as individuals respecting their preferences, choices and values.

Speak To Us

Programme can be accessed whenever you feel the need to rest and recharge. You don’t need to go away – you can still have a live in carer to enable you to get on with things you are behind on, decorate or just be able to get out and about.

Our Respite Programme incorporates all aspects of care including:

  • Bathing / showering
  • Dressing and undressing
  • Mobility
  • Meal preparation
  • Feeding
  • Assistance to the toilet and continence care
  • Exercise programmes only under the instruction of a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist
  • Prompting and administering of prescribed medication, orally and topically (according to Aspen Live In Care’s robust medication policy)
  • Catheter Care
  • Colostomy/ileostomy care
  • Enteral Feeding
  • Companionship

ASSISTING THOSE WHO NEED OUR HELP

Sometimes care is needed only for a short period of time whether it is recovering from an operation, respite for a family member to have a break or to encourage rehabilitation following a programme that is laid out by a Physiotherapist or other medical professional. Having temporary live in care increases confidence following a difficult time. This period of time can be for as long as you need. The difficulty for us is trying to prise our carer away from our client at the end!!

The benefits of registering for the Respite Programme are many. A company you can trust and return to again and again whenever you need a break or to go away. Knowing that you are not alone if you reach breaking point.

Once the original assessment has been completed and all the paperwork is in place you only need to call to book your next respite. We will do a quick “changing needs” catch up and book your carer.

Please contact us for more information.
