Are you looking for respite care services in London?

Caring for your loved is an incredibly compassionate and selfless thing to do, but itcan also be physically and emotionally demanding.

You’re permanently on call, there are no days off and you’re left with little, if any time to relax, unwind and enjoy yourself. That’s why it’s so important for you to be able to step back and take a break from your responsibilities from time to time, so you can recharge your batteries and return to your loved one feeling refreshed and revitalised. 

Whether you’re longing for a holiday, need to take sick leave or just want a little time to yourself, our respite care service, operating across London, offers you the chance to take that much-needed rest, without compromising your loved one’s care.

When Respite Care Becomes A Reality

Are you an exhausted and overwhelmed carer in need of a break?

Are you desperate for a holiday or the chance to reconnect with friends and family?

Perhaps you’re looking to organise cover for a self-employed care assistant whilst they take annual leave or a planned period of absence.

Respite Care

Respite care that works for you

It’s not easy to admit that you need a break from looking after a loved one. You’re likely to be worried about how they will feel, or whether they’ll continue to receive a high standard of care.

Transitioning to a new carer can be unsettling for your loved one too, as they try to adjust to someone new.

Our empathetic and reliable respite carers will ensure there is a smooth handover of caring responsibilities and strive to build a strong rapport with your loved one.

We’ll ensure you get the well-deserved break you need, safe in the knowledge that your family member is receiving the best possible care. Their wellbeing is our top priority.

What to expect with our 
Respite Care
 Service
Care from the comfort of home
By delivering care at home, we can safeguard your loved one’s independence and routine. They’ll feel more secure and settled in familiar surroundings, which can improve their health outcomes. Home respite care is of particular benefit to those with complex health needs who require round the clock care. Our respite carers can pick up where you or another caregiver have left off and take care of daily household and personal care tasks. They can also provide support with administering medication and assist with any mobility challenges.
Flexible care that works for you
We offer a wide range of short-term, flexible respite care options. These are often cheaper than other forms of respite care and involve less form filling. So, whether it’s companionship care, day care, overnight care, or 24-hour live-in care your loved one requires, we can build a respite package to suit them. We don’t need an end date to get started and you won’t be tied into a lengthy contract. Our respite care is quick, simple to arrange and focuses on what you feel works best.
Emergency cover provision
We know that life can throw us regular curve balls and often even the best laid plans can be scuppered. As a caregiver, there may be occasions when you fall ill, have an accident or need to take leave unexpectedly to visit an ailing family member. Our respite carers are on hand to step in at the last minute and provide exemplary care when you’re called away to deal with unforeseen emergencies. We’ll make sure our carers know your loved one’s schedule as well as their preferences and the tasks that need to be taken care of.

More reasons to choose Tiggo Care
Our packages are bespoke
At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.

We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.
We're fully regulated
Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited and ensures that we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.

We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice

Our carers are fully vetted & trained
At Tiggo Care, all our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers also undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is respite care?
Respite care is a form of short-term support that gives carers a temporary break from their caring responsibilities. It provides them with the opportunity to rest and recharge so that they can return to their caring duties refreshed and re-energised.
When might a respite carer be needed?
Respite care may be required if a caregiver falls ill, has an accident, or is called away unexpectedly. It may also be required if the caregiver plans a holiday, needs some additional support following their loved one’s discharge from hospital, or just wants a break from their caring role.
What are the types of respite care?
Whilst Tiggo Care offers home based respite care – care that is provided within the recipient’s own home, there are many other types of respite care available. These include day care centres, respite holidays and short stays in a care home.
What is the difference between respite care and home care?
Although both respite care and home care can be delivered within the care-recipient’s home, home care is generally a longer-term support arrangement. Respite care is a short-term arrangement designed to give existing carers a temporary break from their caring responsibilities. It can be delivered outside the home setting.
How can I pay for respite care?
Respite care is usually paid for privately. However, some local authorities may be able to assist with funding. If you are ineligible to receive funding from your local authority, you may be able to seek help from charities or benevolent funds.
