Take a Break Service
The Take a Break Service can only be accessed via Adult Services through a carer's assessment and is provided, under contract, by a range of providers throughout Hampshire.
This service gives carers the opportunity to have regular short breaks from caring and also gives the cared for person the chance to identify activities and outcomes they would like to achieve.
The service offers:
|Shared Lives Scheme|
For those assessed as eligible, Shared Lives offers carers a break from caring by providing short stays with Shared Lives carers in their own homes.
The Shared Lives provides users of the service a permanent home, a short stay, or day care in an ordinary home setting in the community.
Request a carer's assessment and discuss your needs as a carer including your need to have a longer term break.
