Rest and Recharge
The role you’ve taken as a family caregiver is an important one. Your loved one and other family members depend on you. As the primary caregiver, not only do you deserve an occasional break, but also it’s really necessary so you can recharge your physical, spiritual and emotional batteries. It’s critical that you take the time to care for yourself — doctor’s appointments, regular physical exams, counselling sessions or support group meetings — to ensure you’re not getting rundown and that you’ll be up to the challenges of this daunting responsibility.
The CAREGivers of Home Instead Blackpool and Wyre are ready to step in with the same considerate care and concern for your loved one’s needs so you can get away for any reason. Whether you need to shop, attend a child’s school event, go to church, get some much needed exercise or just have lunch with a friend, our respite care services allow you to relax and enjoy, knowing your family member is well cared for in your absence. Our respite care program is also a wonderful solution when you go on holiday, travel for the holidays, or attend an out-of-town event such as a wedding or reunion.
Tailored to Meet Your Needs
Home Instead Blackpool and Wyre can provide respite care daily, weekly or as needed. We are happy to arrange care for just a few hours, overnight or 24-hour care while you’re away.
Find Time for Yourself
Our service gives you time to relax, pursue activities that give you joy and rediscover yourself. While respite care can’t change your loved one’s situation, it can help you maintain your sense of being and significantly improve your ability to deal with the situation and handle challenges in a positive way.

I just wanted to now take the time to give you some positive feedback regarding my Mum’s new (since Dec 2014) home care provider Home Instead. Michelle Thompson and her team in Blackpool have been outstanding since we first made contact with them and had our initial meeting to today when Michelle supported us in a meeting with Social Services and the Local Mental Health Team.
They have delivered on everything they promised in such a way that my mum now sees them as “family” and not like strangers which was something she experienced with the previous care company. Michelle and her team have my Mum’s interests at the forefront of everything they do and I’m sure that this will be the same with all their clients.
As I said I just wanted to take the time to give this feedback and if you would like any further information or detail please let me know. (the feedback portal on the website wasn’t working hence the email)
