Winter Respite

Are you keen to get away this autumn or winter?

Have the holiday you need with our respite care offer – save up to £300*

When you care for a loved one at home it’s important to have time out to rest and revitalise – perhaps to spend it with family or friends who you don’t often get a chance to see.

Many family carers tell us that they feel guilty at the thought of leaving their loved one in someone else’s hands. Or they’re worried about how much short term respite care in a care home might cost. They also feel that no one will care for their loved one in the way they do.

How can we help?

We’re passionate about supporting families with older loved ones, and each year during holiday times, we enable families across the UK to take a break knowing that their loved one is in the best hands in a Care UK care home.

Take a break and save up to £300*

We’re making quality respite care more affordable than ever this season, so you can have the holiday you need.

Simply book your loved one a break in one of our participating care homes before 31 December 2015 (stay to be completed before 31 January 2016) and we’ll give you a 7 night stay for the price of 5 nights* - that’s a saving of up to £300*. Call us now on 0330 134 6287 to book your loved one’s respite break.
