Free Onsite Respite Services for Those Attending our Workshop

Attendees have the option to have their loved one cared for in our Living Well Respite Centre whilst attending the Carers @ Home Support Workshop. This will enable carers to attend the workshop whilst their loved one is being cared for onsite. Our respite service is totally free of charge if you have a loved one in your care, who is over the age of 18 with a life-limiting illness or serious chronic illness. Your loved ones care needs must be discussed with our respite manager to ensure our respite services are suitable.
