NICE Guideline NG150 - Supporting adult carers

These services, which would include respite care, give carers a break by providing short-term care for the person with care needs in their own home or in a residential setting. This can mean a few hours during the day or evening, overnight, or a longer-term break. Carers' breaks may be one-off or more regular arrangements. They can also benefit the person with care needs by giving them the chance to try new activities and meet new people.
