Dementia is the term used to define a range of symptoms that cause a global decline in brain function. It affects a person's thinking and cognition, behaviour and their ability to perform everyday tasks.
Many carers who choose to look after a loved one, see themselves not as a carer, but as a family member or trusted friend.
Looking after a loved one who requires 24-hour care can be very demanding both physically and emotionally and even the most dedicated carers need a break sometimes.
Clients use our services to allow themselves time to attend to everyday tasks like shopping while some utilise our services for extended periods to allow them to go on holidays. Whatever the length of time, our clients know their loved ones are in safe hands and are comfortable in the familiar surroundings of home.
Colbrow’s dedicated care staff are available to provide respite for carers for as little as one hour and up to 24-hours a day, for any length of time required.
