Caring for adults

Respite options for carers and other individuals

This information explains what potential respite options are available for individuals and carers. If you have any questions or would like any more information about any the provision, then do not hesitate to get in touch with your allocated social worker.

If you do not have an allocated social worker, telephone 023 8083 3563.

This information is to guide you in your choices and help you understand the support that is available to yourself and the person you care for.

The strength-based approach to care

Adult Social Care is changing away from the traditional model of care provision, and is focusing on a strength-based approach. A strengths-based approach to care, support and inclusion invites people to look first at what they can do with their skills and their resources and what help they have around them from family, friends and in their community. We think people should be seen as experts in charge of their own lives rather than recipients of care.
