What we do Support for carers Bookable respite care In times of change or recovery it can become difficult for older people to care for themselves or a loved one. For some people, it's family and friends that become their carers and this can be a full-time job. We all need a break in our already hectic, tiring lives, but even more so when you have the added pressure of looking after your mum, dad, grandparents, siblings, best friend or other special person in your life. Being a full time carer can be an isolating existence and asking for help can be even harder. In situations like these, Guild Care provides reassurance through its bookable respite care that allows people to stay in one of our care homes, receiving care from our dedicated staff on site 24 hours a day. "Having mum in a Guild Care care home for a short stay is invaluable to us both. I know that she is in a safe, secure and very caring environment and that gives me the confidence to enjoy some time away on holiday where I can relax knowing mum is having a nice time."
