Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Respite Care?

Respite care is temporary care that can be helpful when usual carers are in need of a break from caring. It can also be used as part of a recovery process from an accident, injury or illness. Respite care helps both your loved one and their carer time to recuperate. It can also be valuable when additional support that cannot be achieved at home is required for a period of time.

Is Respite Care Free In The UK?

The council may be able to fund your loved one’s respite care following a needs and carer’s assessment. If you do not qualify from your local council, you will have to fund respite care yourself.

Who Qualifies For A Respite Grant?

A Respite Grant is also known as a Carer’s Support Grant. You will qualify for the Carer’s Support Grant if you receive Carer’s Allowance, Carer’s Benefit or Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA). However, if you have been caring for somebody for over six months continuously, live with them and are easily contactable via telephone, you may still be entitled to the support grant.

How Long Does Respite Care Last?

Respite care is short-term, temporary care. This is usually one or two weeks but can be discussed when you speak to our friendly team at Willow Grange.

Is Respite Care The Same As Hospice Care?

It is similar but not the same. Respite care can include medical care but you do not have to be terminally ill to receive it. When needed, respite care can be provided to a hospice patient to give their carer a break.
