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.

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 in a range of different care homes. Respite care is now available in 7 care homes providing you with increased choice and enabling you to choose a setting that best suits your personal needs and circumstances. There are 8 respite care beds that are pre-bookable, and another 2 respite beds located in different homes which are reserved for carer emergencies.

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

Community Based Respite Support 

In response to feedback received from service users and carers, Cheshire East Council is working to develop a more flexible offer of respite support in addition to the bed based service.

Some service users and carers have told us that they don’t want to access bed based support but they still require support to enable them to do things that can be difficult when they have caring responsibilities.

The Community Based Respite Support service could provide support in the cared for persons home, such as a sitting service, or support the cared for person to join a local group for a few hours per week. We currently have the following providers who can provide Community Based Respite Support:
