Being a full-time carer can be a challenging job. Blue Haven not only provides home care support to clients who need assistance around the home, but we also offer respite for carers to enjoy a well earned break.
We recently sat down with two families whose husbands both have Parkinson’s Disease and arranged a lunch for both couples at Barroul House café, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Damian and Dean both have Parkinson’s Disease and are on level 4 HCP funding. They are cared for by their partners – Janet and Nanette. At times they both experience carer stress.
Blue Haven put the families in touch with each other and offer support for Damian and Dean in their own homes by providing respite for their carers to take a break.
Whether it be emergency respite care, if for example their carers get sick and need to go to hospital, or just to simply take a break and relax – Blue Haven offers support to make respite care for carers possible.
