Our At Home services provide respite care, enabling caregivers to take a planned break for a few hours, secure in the knowledge that their loved one has been provided with continuity of care.

Our respite carers are able to offer companionship and any practical care that you would usually provide, keeping disruption of routine to a minimum.

We provide both funded respite as well as a self-funded service:

Funded Respite

You may be eligible for respite care funded by the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea. This may be arranged through social services or My Care, My Way (at your GP surgery). Funded respite is available for up to 4 hours a week. Please contact us for further details.

Self-funded Respite

If you do not qualify for funded respite or would like more hours, we also offer a paid for service, the cost of which is £18 per hour. Please contact us directly to arrange this.
