Covid-19 related respite service

Guild Care has been awarded a small pot of money for respite for unpaid carers who need respite for COVID-19 related reasons. Individual grants can be awarded to carers who need respite in their own home provided by the Guild Care Home Care service or Day Service at Home.

To be eligible for a grant, the carer must meet the following criteria:

Have a Covid-19 related reason for respite which might include:

  • Emergency residential respite or increased Home Care package because the carer contracts Covid-19 or needs to isolate before a planned operation
  • Emergency respite or increased Home Care package because a care home is unable to accept new admissions due to Covid-19
  • Day Service at Home because their loved one is unable to attend their usual day service to their increased anxiety due to Covid or lack of transport
  • Day Service is closed due to Covid-19
Individuals will be able to access a maximum of 5 x half days of respite
