Short Breaks (respite) Service

Are you caring for somebody at home? Do you sometimes need a break?

  • Short breaks service:

    • The short breaks service offers carers a break from the ongoing responsibility of caring for an ill, frail or disabled adult who is being looked after at home, by providing a short stay in a Residential or Nursing Home, Extra Care facility or Hospital for the cared-for person according to need.

    • Some of the charities in Guernsey may provide support with a sitting service therefore it would be useful to make contact with a relevant charity. Please check the charities section on the website for contact details.
