While you remain at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences for the family caregiver can be overwhelming without some support, such as respite. 

Respite provides the much needed temporary break from the often exhausting challenges faced by the family caregiver. The family caregiver needs temporary breaks from the day to day care, giving the caregiver an opportunity to take a break or holiday, relax and recharge. They get time to meet new people or participate in other community activities.

For carers, respite care allows them to take the break that they need, safe in the knowledge that their relative is getting the care that they need.

Being a carer can be very demanding, taking up a lot of emotional and physical energy. Carers often feel worried or guilty about taking time off. But taking breaks from caring is very important, for both the carer and the person being cared for.

Glee Care provides you with the support that is required by the care giver and carer.
