Respite at Home Volunteers
Friendship and support for adults living with life limiting illnesses and respite and time off each week for families caring for their loved ones
Free befriending and support for families in West Mid Beds & Ivel Valley
Can we help you and someone you care for who has a life limiting illness, with some free time and support? Our volunteers visit, give practical help where it's needed and become a supporting friend during the illness and beyond.
We are on hand to help those who prefer to be cared for in their own homes. With the increased emphasis on care in the community, Respite at Home Volunteers is an integral part of the care, complementing statutory services such as community nurses, Macmillan nurses, social workers, hospices and home carers to support families.
"We would just like you to know how much we value J's weekly visits. It has been very enjoyable to go to various local venues for some tea and a chat. We would definitely recommend your service to others be they in some way incapacitated or on their own. Thank you once again for the highly supportive work you all do."
