Respite Care and Day Care

There are over 6 million people in the UK who provide care for a loved one. It can happen gradually as your loved one gets older or suddenly, as a result of ill health, where unexpectedly you find yourself as the primary carer.


Your loved one and other family members depend on you. Your commitment, love and support are constantly being tested. Caring for a loved one can be very pressurising and cause distress; you did not plan on being a carer or were given any training manuals for this, it is not a 9-5 job and it can sometimes be very hard to take a break. Focusing on your loved one, you might neglect your own health, miss out doctor’s appointments, remove yourself from social gatherings as you can’t leave them on their own.


Not only do you deserve an occasional break, but also it’s really important that you recharge your physical and emotional batteries. It is critical that you take the time to care for yourself to ensure you’re not getting rundown and to allow yourself time to relax, pursue hobbies and activities that give you joy.


Take a break. Our respite care program is a wonderful solution when you go on holiday, or attend an out-of-town event. Whether you need time to shop, attend a child’s school event, or have lunch with friends, Bridgewater Home Care are here to help.


Our Respite at home service is tailor made to suit your needs, whether just a few hours, overnight or 24 hour care, on a regular basis or just to cover while you’re away.  Please call us on 01942 215 888 for more information or email
