New Horizons Support Services Sitting Service is a Respite Service provided in the comfort and familiar surroundings of a person’s home. Support from qualified and experienced staff to allow families to go and have a meal, trip to the cinema or a night out.
New Horizons Sitting Service allows primary carers, family members or friends to take time away from their everyday duties to relax, go on holiday or just have a few hours break.
We understand that being a regular Carer for a loved one can make it difficult to arrange some respite for yourself and you may feel apprehensive about going away. New Horizons can provide a high quality care service, affording you the peace of mind to relax and enjoy yourself, knowing that your loved one will continue to receive the care and support they need.
Our services provide flexible alternative options for children aged and adults, to the traditional respite services offered on the Island.
Should you wish to have a shorter period of respite, for example, just an afternoon break twice a week where you’re free to spend time with friends, start a hobby or just have some time to yourself, New Horizons can provide a Support Worker who can look after all of your dependent’s care needs.
For many, the challenges of caring for an elderly, chronically ill, or disabled family member are simply a part of daily life. Caregiving, though, is a demanding job and no one is equipped to do it alone. Respite care provides short-term breaks that can relieve stress, restore energy, and promote balance in your life. Even if working with family members is difficult, there are many other respite care options available to support you and your loved one.
We offer truly personalised respite options including supporting individuals in their own home, an environment they know and are already comfortable with. As our services are life long, it avoids the stress of unnecessary transitions and ensures continuity in how a person’s support is delivered.
Our services are accessible to individuals with mild/moderate needs to those who require specialist support and can be funded privately or if arrangements are in place through Health & Social Services funding.
