Breaks from Caring

Being a carer can be physically and emotionally challenging, and it's important you have the opportunity to take a break from your caring role.

There are lots of ways you can take what we call a 'short break' from caring. This could be for a few hours, overnight, a weekend or longer. Contact the team at South Ayrshire Carers Centre to see how they can help to arrange a break from your caring role. Pop into the centre at 43 Sandgate, Ayr, or call them on 01292 263 000.

Shared Care Scotland has a Short Breaks Website which includes a directory of accessible short breaks and accommodation.
