Carers emergency respite scheme

Caring can be rewarding but it can also be tiring, placing physical and emotional demands on a carer.  

If you are a carer and worry about what might happen to the person you care for if you were taken ill or involved in an emergency, then the Carers Emergency Respite scheme can help you.  

The scheme is funded by Bracknell Forest council and aims to give carers peace of mind by enabling them to complete an emergency plan. To arrange this service you will need to have a carer's assessment, from a social care practitioner.

There is no charge for up to a maximum of 48 hours or 72 hours over a bank holiday weekend. If the emergency continues for longer then an assessment may need to be carried out for the person being cared for.  

If you would like to arrange an assessment or find out more information about this scheme, please call 01344 351500 or email us at
