Respite care is typically provided in a care home, specialist hospital, or dementia unit. There are different levels of respite care to meet different needs.
Day care provides all the benefits of residential care during the day for people who still wish to live independently in their own homes. It’s a great way for people to enjoy the support of a residential care facility without committing to living there 24/7. Day care is an especially attractive option for people who live with family or carers who work during the day, but are home at night.
Rest home care is a type of residential care. Rest homes (also called care homes) provide 24-hour care to people who are no longer able to live independently.
Respite care is short-term care for people who normally live independently, but require temporary support. People often seek respite care following an operation, illness, or accident.
Dementia level care is specialist care for residents with dementia who require accommodation within a secure environment with support from highly trained staff.
