NurtureCare provides home-based respite services that are designed to help maintain children and young people with disabilities in their home environment as an alternative to residential placement.
  • Relief to Parents or Carers

    We provide relief to parents or carers, who care for individuals or when emergencies occur that take care-givers away from the home for short periods. This helps reduce stress and improves family functioning.

  • Coverage

    We can provide temporary or long term relief (min of two hours per session) to families, parents and caretakers of children and young adults with varying complex health needs.

  • Bespoke in-house training

    Our carers will be trained to meet individual child or young person health and social needs.

  • Referrals

    Referrals for home-based respite care can be made directly by families and/or providers.

End of Life Care for Children & Young People

NurtureCare offer reliable, flexible support that is discussed and agreed with individual family members and tailor-made to offer the support that will be of the most help to the family.
  • Spending Time with the Sick Child

    Doing craft activities, reading, or talking with the child about their worries about their illness and treatment as another trusted adult. Sometimes children enjoy spending time with someone who is not a part of their immediate family but who understands some of what they are experiencing.

  • Spending time with Siblings

    Giving brothers and sisters individual time to talk, play or go out somewhere and have some fun. Sometimes brothers and sisters don’t want to worry their parents by discussing their fears with them –our qualified Palliative care nurse can help children discuss these fears and identify ways to manage them.

  • Helping Children Remain in School

    Helping children, both the sick child and brothers and sisters, remain in school by offering transport or collecting children at the end of the school day and helping them with homework or school projects. They can also act as a link between home and school if the sick child is unable to attend but still wants to be a part of school life.
