Highly-rated respite homecare provider across Reading & Wokingham
If you are the primary Carer for a loved one, we know how important it is for you to have someone to trust and rely on when you are taking a break from your day-to-day care duties. Here at Right at Home, we can offer a friendly, familiar face to support your loved one when you take some much needed time for yourself.
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 Reading & Wokingham 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:
“Regardless of my husband’s mood the team have always been guided by these and adapted to the circumstances, keeping calm and treating him accordingly. It is with their help and support that he has made the recovery he has which has surprised a number of our family and friends. It is not until one uses such support that one truly appreciates just how much it is needed when caring for someone and how much it is appreciated by the carers. I have nothing but praise for the team we had in place originally for help with the health issues and now for the respite care (for myself) and companionship (in the form of taking my husband just for a walk or trip out) for us both. I have nothing but praise for them and their efforts. “
How can Right at Home help with respite care?
At Right at Home Reading & Wokingham, 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 Reading & Wokingham 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 Reading & Wokingham, 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.
Why respite care is important
We understand the weight of responsibility associated with providing care. So we also recognise that family Carers may need some time off from their caring responsibilities.
No vulnerable person should be left alone. Our respite care services in Reading & Wokingham are vital to support both family CareGivers and those whom they care for.
Our Clients rely on familiar faces and regular care routines. That’s why we believe respite homecare should pick up where regular homecare services leave off, without interruption.
