Self funded packages

Take a break now

Respondents to our 2013 Annual Carers Research asked us to introduce a variety of respite packages. We listened and responded by launching a variety of flexible, affordable Packages of Care.

In order to keep the cost of our packages to a minimum, we only offer these packages in blocks which must be taken on
the same day.

 

Flexible, affordable breaks

Many Carers struggle on without help until they themselves reach breaking point. Yet, as a Carer it is important that your own health and well-being is maintained so you can continue to care.

We can offer you extended respite breaks to give you a day or an evening away from your caring responsibilities in a block of:

3 Hours – At a time that suits you to allow you the flexible short break that you need.

10 Hours – This gives you the option of day, sleeping or waking night respite care.

24 Hours – This includes 24 hours sleeping or waking care.

48 Hours – This allows you to have a weekend away, safe in the knowledge that the person you care for is receiving the highest standard of care.

Our overnight packages provide the option of waking nights, where our CSW will not go to bed at all, or sleeping nights where a bed is available for our CSW.

All of our Care Packages are flexible and can be tailored around you and the specific needs of the person for whom you care. Call us now to find out more.

 

The process

  1. Contact our Crossroads Choices Care Coordinator, Elaine McKee now for more information, to discuss your requirements or to ask for a price list. Call 01372 869970/ 07481 810981 or email elaine.mckee@crossroadscaresurrey.org.uk.
  2. Allow time for a comprehensive assessment to take place prior to receiving your package.  This will enable us to fully understand your care needs and write a comprehensive, structured care plan.
  3. You will then be matched with a Carer Support Worker who will be introduced to your family before your Care Package takes place. This is to ensure that both you and your loved one feels comfortable, cared for and there is continuity of care.

Please note different rates apply for weekends (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) and bank holidays.
