Isle of Wight Council

Document Library: ASC EIA - Respite Care for Adults Policy


The policy recognises that carers can be eligible for support in their own right and the valuable role they play in our local community. The guidance explains the importance that carers have regular breaks from caring and have time to themselves, even if it is just for a short time. It explains in detail how the council supports carers in their caring role and the assessment process to confirm they have eligible needs. Any service identified will be financially assessed.

The policy explains the various kinds of respite care available and gives guidance to Adult Social Care workers.
