What are the benefits of respite to a carer?

The benefits of respite to a carer are:

  • Time to do something for themselves and do things that they just cannot do whilst in their caring role (i.e. attend appointments)
  • Time to recharge their batteries to feel more able to continue in their caring role
  • Time to meet with others and maintain relationships
  • Time to enjoy being free to do as they wish (hopefully)
  • Time for a break in their routine (and for the person they care for)
