Respite Care

Providing short-term respite care if you are performing the role of principle carer and need some time off or a break

At Midian Care we understand that to be able to take good care of a loved one you need to be taking good care of yourself.  Giving yourself time to rest and recharge is essential so that you can continue to give your best care.  We recognise the importance of easy access to high quality respite care that gives you the assurance you need.

This is especially true for people whose life is filled with big responsibilities and daily tasks requiring your constant attention.

When you’re responsible for caring for a sick or elderly loved one, you often need to devote a lot of time to this, leaving little room for other obligations. While the cycle of going through your daily routine and shouldering all the responsibilities may seem inevitable, you should always remember that there are more options available.

One way to take a much-needed break is through respite care. The respite care services we offer are essentially a way for our care specialists to support your loved one while you’re away or unable to care for them yourself. You may consider it a short-term or urgent solution to a situation that you’re simply not equipped to handle on your own.
