Take a Break
It’s really important to look after your wellbeing, and sometimes you might need some respite to ensure that you don’t burn out.
Day Centres are a good way for you to get a break and for your loved one with dementia to get some social interaction and participate in activities. Or, if you need a longer break, many care homes offer residential respite.
Providers offer full day and/or half day options, and some offer transport too. Below are a list of Day Centres and Care Homes that provide day respite services. Just click on the one you want to find out more about and it will take you to their website.
