What is respite care for the elderly?

Respite care for the elderly is temporary care. It is typically used as part of recovery after an accident, illness or surgery when regular carers need a break. Also valuable when additional specialised support is required, respite care can be both beneficial for the carer and the care receiver. Elderly respite care allows the regular carers to take a break but the care receiver will still receive the support they need. Being a carer for a loved one can be physically and mentally demanding. Short breaks like respite care are recommended so that the carer can recharge their batteries.

Is respite care free in the UK?

Following a needs assessment and carer’s assessment, the council will make the decision as to whether they will pay for your respite care if you or your care receiver qualify for it. If you or your care receiver do qualify for respite care, the council will do a financial assessment to work out if they will be able to pay towards it. If you do not qualify from your local council, you may need to pay for elderly respite care yourself.

Who qualifies for a respite grant?

The Carer’s Support Grant used to be called a Respite Grant. You will qualify for the annual Carer’s Support Grant if you are a carer who receives Carer’s Allowance, Carer’s Benefit or Domiciliary Care Allowance (DCA). However, even if you do not receive any of these payments, you may still be entitled to the support grant if you have been caring for the person continuously for at least six months. You must live with the person you are caring for and be easily contactable directly, such as via a telephone or alarm. If you are caring for more than one person, you will be entitled to a grant for each of them.

Is respite care the same as hospice?

Not exactly. Respite care services can include medical care but you do not need to be terminally ill to receive respite care. However, respite care can be provided to hospice patients to give their caregivers the break they need. Our respite care services in Surrey provide short-term care for the elderly when their caregiver is unable to do so or needs a break.

Can you go into a hospice for respite?

When a loved one is terminally ill, they can be checked into a care facility such as a hospice or nursing home for respite care if this is necessary. It depends on your loved ones’ individual requirements and what would be necessary for their exact care plan. If they do not need as much medical support, a residential home can provide respite care services.

Can you go into a care home temporarily?

Depending on the individual needs of your loved one, they may be eligible for elderly respite care services. If it is deemed that a move into a care home is appropriate, your loved one will be able to move into a care home on a short-term, temporary or permanent basis. A temporary stay in a care home can give the caregiver the break that they need and give the care receiver a chance to experience life in a care home.

What is the difference between rehab and respite?

Rehabilitation care will help you to recover from an injury or an illness, whereas respite care gives your caregiver a temporary break and some support.
