Getting a Break

Sooner or later, people who are looking after a friend or relative who has dementia may appreciate a break from caring: this is called respite. Respite might be for a week, or just for an hour or two. The person with dementia may be cared for at home, in a day centre, or a care home.

As well as respite information, this section also has information about holidays, for carers and people who have dementia to holiday together or separately. Click on a bubble below to select the desired topic.
