We know how important it is for full time carers to make time for themselves, for their own health and to help give them energy to carry on caring. Our respite care grants support carers, giving them the chance to recharge their batteries, with the reassurance that their loved ones will be safe and cared for.
Last year, we supported 57 families with grants totalling £265,000
Our grants can be used in a variety of ways and individuals can choose what works for them. Grants can support short-term residential care breaks, domiciliary care in an individual’s own home or care at a day centre. Our grants can fund short breaks at any residential or nursing home or day service, so families can choose care that is convenient for them.
Care at a Masonic home
Day care service is suitable for older people who enjoy the independence of living at home, but who may want company and support during the day and the chance to meet people in the community. RMBI Care Company aims to help its day service users to remain active and independent. They provide a friendly environment where visitors can relax, socialise and develop their skills through stimulating activities, such as arts and crafts, yoga and tai chi.
