Short term care and support

Short-term care and support covers a range of services that may help you and your family to sustain independent living at home for as long as possible.  

You may need short term care due to your health or personal circumstances. This may be because you are recovering from an illness or injury or because any family and friends who usually help you are unavailable.

There are various short term care and support options available to you, including:

  • Respite Care 
  • Shared Lives Scheme
  • Day Care 
  • Intermediate Care
  • Home Enabling Service
