Carers

How can I take a break from caring?

Taking a break from caring doesn’t necessarily mean going on holiday, it could just be a couple of hours away from your normal care routine for you to relax, go to an appointment or meet up with a friend for example. It is recognised that taking a break and asking for help are steps towards positive emotional wellbeing.

St Helens Carers Centre are able to provide you with information and advice about taking a break, and they can also offer a personalised break fund (up to £300 per year) in order for you to be able to give you a break from your normal day to day caring role.

Crossroads Care is Britain’s leading provider of support for Carers and the people they care for. They work with over 41,000 individuals and their families, helping Carers make a life of their own outside caring.

The Respite Association provides short-term assistance in the funding of appropriately qualified respite care for disabled, sick, elderly or terminally ill persons in order that their regular Carer can be allowed to take a break.

Carers Direct (0808 802 0202) and Carers UK (0808 808 7777) can also provide free, confidential information and advice about the different ways to find a break and what options are available for the person that you are caring for.
