When you care for another person,  we understand that taking time out for yourself if you need to is important for your own health and wellbeing. That’s why we offer respite breaks.

A respite break is ideal for when a regular care-giver (family carer) is unavailable, or extra support is needed on a short-term basis.

Respite breaks allow you to take a break from your caring role, while the person you care for is looked after by someone else in the comfort of their own home.

If you live in Sandwell or surrounding areas, please give us a call us on 0121 553 6483 to discuss options and prices.

If you live in Birmingham, please see information below regarding funded respite breaks for family carers.

Funded Respite Breaks for Family Carers in Birmingham

Crossroads can provide free respite breaks for family carers living within the Birmingham area, who care for people with dementia or those who have a palliative condition. This service is funded by Birmingham and Solihull ICB.

We recognise the importance of feeling that your family member is in safe hands. We pride ourselves on the quality of care our staff provide, which is person-centred to meet the needs of individuals.

Your respite will be planned weekly, in breaks of 2 to 3 hours – or for a member of our team to stay with your loved one overnight to allow you have a break – to recharge your batteries. We will review your situation after six weeks, to assess if your circumstances have changed and to see how we can help further.

Respite breaks can be delivered flexibly to suit your needs. For more information, in the first instance, please contact our care team on 0121 553 6483 who will be happy to provide more information. Alternatively, please complete a referral form.
