Our Services

We understand that finding the right care and support for you or loved ones that can be tailored to your needs and circumstances is critical in securing peace of mind.

At Flexible Respite we do just that.  Our non-emergency service allows you to determine what support is needed at the times when you need it. Caring for others in a way we wish to be cared for ourselves, we offer compassion, empathy, professionalism and most of all time and peace of mind.

Whether your need is for a short term or “one off” period of support or a longer-term daily or weekly arrangement we are on hand to help. We offer a minimum of a two-hour service per visit, which allows time to build supportive relationships and deliver the quality of care and companionship which is needed.

Our Customer Feedback

“Trust, understanding, the ability to care sensitively for someone living with dementia, patience and respect’ were some of the priorities when searching for someone as a companion for my Husband – in other words, ‘a friend’.

My Husband is excited when his friend visits and I can leave them knowing he is in safe hands and will enjoy the time they spend together.”

Wife of Client

“Flexible Respite are caring, respectful and I would recommend them to anyone with a relative or friend that needs support.

Our carers have become part of our family and are much appreciated.”

Wife of Client

“Flexible Respite did exactly what it says on the tin, gave me and my family respite through a difficult period dealing with our mother who has dementia.

The Carers were kind and professional at all times often going above and beyond their roles to provide our mother with days out and additional activities. We would like to thank Alison and her team for their dedication.”
