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 support. The Cheshire East Carers Hub undertakes Carer's assessments on behalf of the Council.
An adult carer’s assessment will look at the different ways that caring affects your life, to understand how you can carry on doing the things that are important to you and your family.
Your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing will be at the heart of this assessment. All the information gathered during your assessment will help us to make a decision as to whether you have eligible needs for support.
A financial assessment will also be undertaken to assess whether the person you care for will need to contribute financially to the cost.
Cheshire East Council recognises the importance of carers supporting loved ones at home and how vital having access to respite care is for your wellbeing.
Bed based Respite Care is now available at Corbrook Park Nursing Home. They can offer Emergency, Residential, Nursing and Dementia respite beds which can be booked in advance throughout the year.
