A Respite Carer is an individual who is available to step in when a regular Care Worker requires time off, due to illness, holiday, or some other reason. The same skills as a Carer would be required, as patients must receive an identical level of care and support to that which they receive from the regular member of staff.
Due to the nature of the work, salaries can vary greatly and employment is usually on a temporary basis. In the UK, Respite Carers may be employed by the NHS or by Private Care Firms.
Respite Carers need to be available out of normal working hours, due to the nature of the work - and also be prepared to attend at very short notice. Recruitment agencies will look for Respite Carers who can guarantee that no disruption is caused to the patient when they assume responsibility for their care, and that the usual care plan is adhered to. Successful candidates in this role will thrive on caring for other people, and take their job very seriously.
