Call for evidence: Models of residential respite services for people with dementia

Respite services give carers a break from caregiving. They are often seen as an essential element of support, one which may delay or prevent a move to a care home. Sometimes, the term ‘restorative care’, instead of ‘respite care’, may be used to reflect the benefits for the people being catered for.

We are researchers at the NIHR Health & Social Care Workforce Research Unit at King’s College London seeking information about different models of residential respite services for older people living with dementia. The purpose of this is to gain an overview of the different models or residential respite available in England. This study is funded by the Alzheimer’s Society.
