If you’re caring for someone, you might find it hard to take a break. But it is important that you do – both for you and for the person you care for. Respite care is when the person you care for is looked after by someone else. That can be in their home, or somewhere else. It might be for just a short time, like a few hours or overnight, or it can be for longer periods, like a few weeks.
