Need a break?
If you are a Carer for someone you may be providing practical help such as cleaning or cooking, or physical tasks such as bathing lifting and dressing. You may be giving emotional support or having to keep a close eye on the person you care for.
Caring for someone can be exhausting and you may find that there are times when you need a break. However we respect the individuality of Carers and people with care needs and seek to promote their choice, independence, dignity and safety. We hope that we can provide access to high quality services that enable you to fully benefit from a break from your caring responsibilities.
Forest of Dean Crossroads can offer breaks for Carers which can take different forms. We run two day centres where those you care for can spend a day in friendly surroundings in the care of our Support Workers or alternatively you may prefer to have our Carer Workers attend your home and take over your caring duties whilst you take a break.
