Support for unpaid adult carers

There are different options depending on your needs and preferences.

Wee Break Midlothian

One of the biggest barriers that carers face before having a short break is a lack of information.  VOCAL in Midlothian have created a website providing all that information specifically for people living in Midlothian.

Respite care

To provide you with a break, the person you care for can stay for a few days in a care home, with the advantage of staff available day and night.

Care in your own home

Trained carers can provide additional support in your own home. You might need this to get to appointments or just to have a break. There are a number of agencies in Midlothian offering a wide range of support.
