Adult and Carer Respite

Caring for somebody can be a rewarding yet challenging job.

One way you can look after yourself as a carer is by taking occasional breaks from your caring role.

Under the Care Act, carers are entitled to a carer's assessment. This means you may be able to access more support to help you look after yourself and carry on caring which may include carer respite.

A financial assessment will also be undertaken to assess whether the person you care for will need to contribute financially to the cost.

The Council are committed to providing a choice of respite beds local to you. Respite care is now available in 4 care homes throughout Cheshire East, providing you with increased choice and enabling you to choose a setting that best suits your personal needs and circumstances. There are 5 respite care beds that are pre-bookable, and another 2 are reserved for carer emergencies.

Adult and Carer Respite is available at the following care homes in Cheshire East
