Take a Break: Hampshire


The Take a Break service gives unpaid carers the chance to have some time to themselves by providing a replacement carer for the person they are care for up to three hours a week.
The service can only be accessed via Adults' Health and Care through a carer's assessment and is provided by one of the providers on the Hampshire Care at Home Framework.
Carers who would like to use Take a Break and are eligible for the service following their Carer's Assessment will be contacted directly by the local provider. Carers can book their breaks when the care provider has capacity and it suits them. They can choose to have a few regular hours off each week or save up their hours for a maximum period of six weeks at a time for a slightly longer break.
In addition to enabling the carer to have some time to themselves, the service gives the cared for person the opportunity to identify activities and outcomes they would also like to achieve from the service.
