Residential CareDecision Making

How to get respite care for dementia patients

Respite care for dementia patients can either be arranged directly with your chosen dementia respite care provider, or via your local authority adult social care team, if you are eligible for financial support.

In either case, a care assessment will be carried out to find out more about how your dementia presents itself, the care and support you need, and the benefits that you are hoping to experience from your dementia respite care stay. Most importantly of all, it will check that your chosen dementia care provider is able to meet your needs during your respite stay with them.

Dementia respite care can be a brilliant way to get to know a dementia care home, particularly if you are contemplating a longer-term stay in the future. It can also provide a much-deserved break for loved ones who support someone living with dementia, allowing them to step back from their care responsibilities and go back to being a friend or relative.
