It is appreciated that occasionally Carers of loved ones could benefit with a break from the daily task of looking after them.
At ETA we can help by providing the required resources to take certain jobs off you for an agreed period of time; allowing you the Carer to recharge your batteries, leaving you able to resume your role feeling refreshed with a complete handover.
It can be difficult to tackle domestic duties, especially with other obstacles in the way, be it physical, stress, or work-related. To this end, we endeavour to help with any aspect of home care that need doing. We will do our best to meet your requirements. Services include:
Housework (dusting, vacuuming);
Making and changing beds;

Taking out rubbish.
This can be either on a short term basis especially as respite care (post admission or convalescing) or long term. Services include:
Washing, bathing, showering, dressing and toileting;
Meal and snack preparation;
Medication prompts and applying creams;
Morning waking and putting to bed.
If you are unable to do your shopping due to being housebound, having reduced mobility or you simply need a break, we are there to help. We can do this on our own or accompany you, whichever is most suitable for you.
This can be part of Personal care, Respite Care or as a Standalone. We will provide as much or as little support as you require.
You may be at home yet still feel isolated and alone. Whether you are looking for someone to keep you company, someone to play games with you, provide a listening ear, or you simply require general support - we are here to help. You can request as little or as much time as you desire. Services include:
Arranging and/or escorting to appointments (e.g hairdressers, GP);
Help with choosing clothing;
