What is respite care?
Respite care is temporary care to provide relief for a primary CareGiver. Often this is a family member caring for a loved one. You may need someone to cover a permanent CareGiver’s time off, or alternatively, respite homecare may simply provide extra assistance as and when you and your family need it.
Our respite care services in Guildford & Farnham can be planned as a one-off or regular weekly visits, to provide peace of mind that your loved one is in safe hands.

Here’s just one review of our respite care services:
“The care that has been given by all the staff we met from the Right at Home team was outstanding, from the management team though to Carers who provided the actual support. At a time when we felt totally desperate, they helped us with a real understanding of our situation. I can not thank them enough.”
How can Right at Home help with respite care?
At Right at Home Guildford & Farnham, we offer a range of flexible services for respite care. We can arrange a one-off visit, or regular visits, to give a family CareGiver a break from their caring responsibilities. Alternatively, we can provide support as and when required.
You may need respite care for an hour or two each week, or it could be managed live-in care for a number of weeks whilst a family CareGiver goes on holiday. From companionship and meal preparation, to full support for someone with more complex care needs, our team of Carers in Guildford & Farnham are here to help.
Regardless of the duration of the package, or the level of care required, our approach is based entirely on our Clients’ usual routines. Our aim is always to make a temporary change in care services as easy for our Clients as possible. We care for our Clients in the same way we would care for a member of our own family, so you can rest assured that your loved one is receiving the highest standard of care.
How respite care works
As with all new Clients, we will come and spend time with them and their family in their home setting. This way we get to know every Client as an individual and can observe and learn their day-to-day routines.
We will agree with the Client and their family on a specific care plan. This plan will address exactly how our team of CareGivers can help. At Right at Home Guildford & Farnham, our respite care services should mirror our Clients’ usual care and support as closely as possible.
We will then carefully match a suitable CareGiver, who will be introduced before they begin delivering in-home care.
We also arrange, in advance, what level of communication the Client’s family would like during our time with them. This is to ensure that the family is kept well-informed and reassured. Our respite care services should always allow friends and family to relax in the knowledge that their loved one is in safe hands.
