What is respite

‘Respite’ or ‘respite care’ is when someone else takes care of the person you care for, so that you can have a break. A break can give you time to do everyday activities, deal with stress and look after yourself. When you are a carer, it’s important to regularly take time for yourself to rest and recharge.

Studying while caring

Many students also care for someone and this can be hard. The time and energy that caring takes can interfere with your study. If you a school or university student, you may be able to get support to help you to combine studying and caring.
