Respite care is the provision of short-term accommodation in a facility outside the home in which a loved one may be placed. This provides temporary relief to those who are caring for family members, who might otherwise require permanent placement in a facility outside the home. Both Care Homes in East and West Horsley offer this for the elderly. See the Care Homes page.
