Novus Care offers respite support by providing a professional carer while a person’s regular carer takes some time off.

For family carers to be good at their job, sometimes they need a break to look after their own wellbeing or go on holiday. Respite support can be a vital requirement for family members, carers or friends to allow them to have a break from their care duties whilst having the peace of mind that their loved one is still receiving the care they need.

We have decades of experience providing first class home care and can match you with a flexible carer who can fulfil your individual requirements.

What Is Respite Support?

A trained carer is there to do everything you normally do,  with a tailored care plan  put into place. We can provide live-in care or visiting care, for as long as you need. With professional support and companionship while you are away, you can rest assured your loved one is in good hands.

The circumstances of respite care vary. A family carer may need a sudden leave of absence if they become sick, or they may take a planned holiday. Whether you need short term or long term respite support, Novus Care have a team of professional carers waiting to fill your shoes.

Many relatives take great pride in being able to care for their loved ones, enabling them to live as independently as possible at home. However the emotional, financial and physical burden for the carer can become overwhelming if they do not receive a break or some support for themselves.

Many people who care for a loved one full time depend on respite support at least once a year. There are many advantages of respite care for both the carer and the care receiver.
