Frequently Asked Questions about Respite Care Homes

What is respite care?

Respite care is a short-term, temporary stay in a care home, designed to support both the caregiver and the person you're caring for. A typical stay in a respite care home is often around one to two weeks. However, the length of respite care will depend on your unique personal care needs.

Who pays for respite care?

Sometimes, your local council will pay for a temporary stay in a respite care home following a care needs assessment. Alternatively, if you don't qualify for local authority funding for care homes, you may have to pay for care yourself – also known as self-funding.

How much does respite care cost?

As a general guide, the average cost of respite care in the UK is between £700-£800 each week. The cost of respite care is unique for everyone, as it will depend on the length of stay and the type of support your loved one requires.
