Respite care and carer supported holidays -
because you deserve a break
Respite Care with Unisus
Respite care benefits both the Carer and the person being cared for. Because everyone deserves a break now and again. This is particularly true when people are together almost 24/7.
As a Carer, it’s vital you take some time for yourself. Your own well-being is integral to your ability to care for someone else. Whether it’s a regular short time half a day a week, or a two-week holiday, you need to be able to do so with the knowledge and confidence that your loved one is well looked after in your absence. This allows you to take care of your own everyday family needs or a well-earned rest and charge your batteries.
As the person being cared for, this may provide the opportunity to take your own break. It may be your regular carer needs time to attend work or study, maybe even need medical treatment themselves. You’ll meet one of our experienced friendly carers, matched to your needs and preferences, for a nice, if temporary change.
Whatever your respite care needs, Cygnet carers can help with one to one support whether its to cover a family emergency, sickness cover or that long promised family holiday.
Choices for respite care with Unisus
At Unisus, we offer several options for respite care to fit around your needs, whether you’re a Carer or a cared for person. You can discuss your preferred choice with us, from the following options:
- Respite care and support at home
- Carer supported respite holidays
Respite care and support at home
Familiar routines and surroundings may be important to you. Here at Cygnet we’re happy to be able to provide a range of home-based respite care options, supported by our expert team of respite carers:
Someone to sit with your loved one for a few hours a day on an occasional or regular basis.
Night time cover
As a Carer, you may need time to get a good nights’ sleep one or two nights a week. Either on a regular basis or when it becomes necessary for your own health and well-being.
For those times when other, unforeseen things happen in life. As a Carer, it may fall to you to deal with these too and you’ll need time and space to do so.
24 hour care
Either arranged to provide a regular break for a Carer or on those occasions when it becomes necessary
All of our home-based respite care options are designed to fit around your own requirements. Here at Cygnet we pride ourselves on taking care of the Carers as well as the cared for person.

Carer supported respite holidays
Where would you like to go? Somewhere in the UK or abroad? Holidays are a time to recharge your batteries, take a break from your normal routine and have some fun in the sun (or snow if that’s your preference).
Carer supported respite holidays allow Carers and their loved ones take a break from their normal everyday routine.
Whatever your holiday choice, our Cygnet expert carers can be on hand to ensure you both have the best holiday care service possible. We help take away your worries about travelling and coping in new surroundings. With our help, you can focus on enjoying your holiday.
What kind of holiday are you planning? We have two options:
Taking holidays together are great for a change of scenery and the chance to try new things, see new place. It may not be much of a holiday for you if you’re the main Carer.
A Cygnet carer can help you with travel and access on getting to your holiday destination. We can be on hand to take on the day to day caring responsibilities, ensuring you get a break from your routine too.
Breaks for Carers
For the times you need to take your own holiday. You can enjoy your holiday knowing your loved one is being cared for in their own home while you’re away.
