Our principal services involve day-to-day care of older people in their own homes (and in care homes) and this extends to providing replacement care (respite) for families who need a break from day-to-day caring duties.
We are often asked to provide care for elderly relatives while their family go away on holiday. This works particularly well with Home Instead, because more often than not we are able to ensure the same CAREGiver provides the support during each holiday period. One family have told the office that their elderly mother now asks when they are going away, as she likes the visits from her 'special holiday friend' the Home Instead CAREGiver!
Our replacement care service in East Devon can be for as little as a few hours enabling you to go out, or even just remain quietly at home. We often take Clients on shopping trips, to places of interest, to church, The Donkey Sanctuary, Bicton Gardens, National Trust properties or even just along the beach to see the sea and enjoy an ice cream together.
Our support at home can be as flexible as you need it to be, so if you are away on holiday or just for a short break we can increase our support to ensure that you have the peace of mind and the break needed.
