Short breaks and time out for carers

Sitting services and holiday care cover

The sitting services and holiday care cover can give you peace of mind while you’re on holiday and away from the person you care for.

How it works

Trained staff can stay with the person you care for while you:

  • go out and have a break
  • get on with something at home

We can provide an overnight sitting service if you:

  • are away
  • want to catch up on some sleep

We can also arrange to visit the person you care for a number of times a day.
