Short break in a care home
You can stay in a care home for a short time to give your carer a break from caring. This is sometimes known as ‘respite care’.
If you’re getting help at home from us, you should contact your social worker or contact Adult Social Care.
We will arrange the short break. You pay for respite care in a care home from your personal budget.
