We achieve a high level of client satisfaction with the short-term care packages we provide for them


Respite Care


Our carers are available to take over care for short periods of time to relieve family members of caring for their relatives. Respites can consist of such simple things as carers coming and sitting in with your relative while you go out for a few hours, and can be planned to fit around your lifestyle.


Respite care allows family members and friends to relax and find time to pursue their own goals, with the knowledge that the care of their loved one is in safe hands.


Holiday Care Cover


Philip Parkinson Homecare provides a great deal of temporary care contracts, perfect for if you’re going on holiday for a week or two but have a family member to care for at home. These care packages are developed around you and your loved ones needs, and are designed to provide you with peace of mind.


Setting up Holiday Care with us allows you to take a holiday secure in the knowledge that your loved one is receiving excellent care which has been tailored to suit the individual needs of both you and your relative. You can even design a repeat package, allowing you to take regular breaks.


Supplementary Care


Supplementary care is ideal for family members and friends who care for a loved one but also need time to cover other commitments, such as work or children.


We offer packages to help ease the load, freeing up some spare time as and when it suits your lifestyle. These can consist of providing regular or occasional help, for as little as one hour at a time.


Home from Hospital Service


This service enables people when leaving hospital to regain independence with the support of our carers. We give practical assistance with all daily tasks and help to restore confidence. Often the time spent in hospital or a rehabilitation unit is shortened when this type of support is available.


For more information see our page on Services for Adults.




The cost of short-term care is always a major consideration, but we work with you to negotiate a personal budget. We make sure that everyone receives the same standard of care, whether short-term or long-term.


Although costs vary depending on what is needed, we will provide you with a care package quote which offers good value at a fair price, allowing family members and friends to benefit enormously.
