Care Homes and Day Care

As a carer it can be difficult to make the decision to go on holiday or take some time away from the person you care for.  It is always important to remember that this time away can renew your energy and confidence in dealing with your demanding caring role. If you make the decision to choose respite care here are listings of care homes which specialise in caring for people with dementia.There is a listing for Warwickshire and a separate one for the Coventry area, which may cover some parts of Warwickshire. This information has been taken from the website of the Care Quality Commission which is the independent regulatory body of health and social care in England. It can provide independent reports and quality ratings on all care homes in your area.  Your Care Home is an organisation that can provide an extensive online research facility for anyone looking for a care home. DISC has no control over external websites' content.The Alzheimer's Society has produced some factsheets giving information about choosing a care home.Day care enables the carer to have some short term regular respite.  The person with dementia attends a day centre for 3 – 7 hours at a time, for a minimum of one day per week, including meals and drinks.  Activities are organised either at the centre or as visits out to places of interest.  Often transport can be organised.  In order to access this service the person usually requires a referral through social services or health services.  Details about Care Homes is provided as information only.
