That’s why I’d like to tell readers why we are dedicated to doing all we can to provide a helping hand to those in a caring role.

Over the years, experience has taught us just how steadfast many carers are in their devotion to those they support.

It is this which gives them the strength to carry on, day in, day out.

But there are times when this can also become a huge barrier, preventing carers from taking time off, even if only for a few days.

At Revitalise – an incredible national charity that provides respite holidays for disabled people and carers – we understand that to enjoy a break to the full carers must feel secure in the knowledge that their loved one will receive all the care and support they need.

We also know that spending time away from the person they care for can often be far from relaxing, but can increase a carer’s tendency to worry or experience feelings of guilt.

That’s why we offer carers the opportunity to enjoy a break with their loved one, where they are able to relinquish their caring duties and simply enjoy spending time with one another, away from the stresses of everyday life.

If you would like to find out about Revitalise, our breaks, ways we can help you, or ways you can help us, please call 0303 303 0147 or visit www.revitalise.org.uk.
