Community Careline Services (Gillingham)

Community Careline Services can offer a range of support services, both to assist carers in their duties and to give them a rest from caring.

We can also offer assistance on breaks and holidays, for clients and their carers.

The Carers' Respite service provides following types of breaks.

Short breaks

Short breaks are offered on an hourly, daily and weekend basis or all-holiday breaks for the family.

We can offer family members a much needed break without feeling guilty or irresponsible. Often, the person cared for enjoys the change of pace as much as the carer.

If neighbours or family members play an essential part in caring, we can provide the necessary cover while they are away.

Our staff are available for night duty, either as a sleep over or on wakeful attendance. This can be a useful means of providing respite periods for family or permanent carers.

Client breaks

Where appropriate, our professionals can arrange to accompany clients on UK holidays or on trips between friends or family members.

Wherever you may travel in the UK, you will find a local Community Careline Service who will provide the same quality of service as you receive in your own home.
