If you live in the London Borough of Ealing, you may be able to benefit from:
Ealing: The Carers Pathway Partnership Respite and Befriending Services provide short breaks in Ealing for carers of people aged 50+.
If you are a carer looking after someone in Ealing and you’re in need of a break, then the Carer’s Pathway Consortium have a range of options available to you, both in and outside of the home.
We are a partnership of six local charities working to offer a short break service that suits you. We provide both free and paid for services depending on the cared- for person’s needs. These include a befriending service delivered by a volunteer, or a range of day-care options. Our paid- for services are delivered by CQC regulated support workers, should the person you care for need help with medication or toileting.
Kensington and Chelsea: Carers Respite and Befriending as part of the ‘My Care My Way’ Service.
Our Carers Short Breaks Service can provide you with up to six sessions of respite, which will enable you to have time away from your caring role to do something that you enjoy whilst we provide a care support worker to spend meaningful time with the person that you care for. This could involve a sitting service and friendly chat, or taking them out to an activity of their choice.
Our Befriending service can provide you with up to six sessions of support. During this time a support worker will visit you in your home to provide you with companionship whilst supporting you to identify and access activities that you may enjoy attending. Our staff are there to help you feel more connected with your local community and can accompany you to these activities if necessary.
Both services are free and can be accessed following a referral from your GP surgery.
Once we receive a referral, we will contact you to arrange an assessment. We will then create a support plan with you and agree a day and time for the service to start.
If you would like to access either the respite or befriending service by private arrangement, please call us on 0203 137 6194.
We are always looking for volunteers to share their skills with us. This could be through volunteering some time to set up an activity or art/craft session. It could also be through helping out on reception, admin, marketing or supporting our groups and events.
If you or someone you know share our passion and are committed to supporting others, please contact us on 0203 317 6194.
If you would like to refer yourself or someone you know then you can either call, email or drop into one of our centres. One of our friendly staff will take some details and discuss the most appropriate support for you.
If you would like to access the free respite service, then please request a referral from your social worker.
If you are a GP or NHS professional you can safely send referrals directly to us to our secure NHS email address: email@example.com
Ella lives in the Milton Keynes area with her father (her mother is deceased). She has learning disabilities and a physical disability. Ella wanted to be more independent and to feel confident in herself. Our care support workers helped Ella to learn how to choose and apply moisturiser and makeup. This helped her feel more confident in her social group at her day centre and other events, and she felt that she learned an important life skill for a woman of her age.
The staff supporting Ella arranged for her to visit a local Boots™ for a free makeover session where she was given a large pamper pack of goodies. Ella has learnt that she can have a free test of makeup by visiting makeup counters, and has compiled a scrap book of makeup and ‘looks’ that she likes or finds amusing. Now Ella’s individual support has finished, we are pleased to say that she is continuing to apply makeup expertly and is increasingly confident.
