Respite Care

What is respite care in the home?

Respite care can be provided if your loved one’s current care situation is going to change, this can occur for a number of reasons, their primary carer, whether that is a family member or another carer may need to take some time off or require some additional support with caring for your loved one.

What are the options for respite care at home?

Respite care for the elderly is typically a more temporary package that we can tailor to your specific needs. Our carers can provide live-in, hourly and nightly in-home respite care services, depending on the nature of the respite care.

Benefits of respite care

After your temporary in-home respite care package with Cera, if you decide that you would like us to be your primary care provider this can be easily arranged. We can provide you with the same care worker or a different more suitable care worker for your loved one.

Benefits of CQC regulated elderly care

Cera is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the national governing body for regulation of health and social care. The CQC undertakes regular inspections to ensure that care companies are performing to a strict standard that ensures, safe, reliable, high quality, well-led and effective social care. The advantages of receiving CQC regulated elderly care include; the maintenance of a high standard and quality of safe care via regular inspections and training to ensure that your loved ones are well cared for. You can also register complaints or praise about the quality of care that you receive with Cera via the CQC, giving you a voice in the standard of care that you expect to receive for yourself or your loved one. It is strongly advised that you chose a care company that is CQC regulated in order to ensure safe, high quality care.

Funding Elderly Home Care

There are two main options for funding elderly home care, these include means tested funding from your local authority or private, self-funding. If you qualify for social funded care, we can accept payments from your local authority and speak with them to arrange payment options. We can also help you arrange top-up payments if your local authority does not cover the full cost of your care requirements. Further queries can be answered by talking to one of our care specialists over the phone.
To check whether you are eligible for public funding please follow this advice from Age UK.
