Respite Funds

Funding Respite

Social & Community Services

Oxfordshire Social & Community Services Department will fund respite care for some people. Charges for services depend on the financial circumstances of the person being cared for; they will need to be financially assessed.

Time for Carers Funds

If the person with dementia is self-funding, carers sometimes find it problematic to arrange respite care, as this has to be paid for.
Limited non-means-tested funds are available to help with this.

Carers' Special Grant money is administered through the three Carers Centres in Oxfordshire to provide various funds, including respite funds to enable carers to take a break from caring.
