Today marks the start of Carers Week, an important date in our calendar as we recognise the 6.5 millions carers living in the UK. It is estimated that unpaid carers save the economy £60bn per year. That’s why, as a charity we are passionate to do all we can to support unpaid carers and ensure they all have access to good quality respite. Our guests often tell us just how important their break has been for their well-being; June cares for her daughter Sally-Ann and tells us about their relationship and life at home:

“It was so important for us to have the respite and it was a really good rest for both of us. I could let my hair down and for once in a blue moon I didn’t have to worry about the responsibilities of home. Some people would say that Revitalise is just a break but it’s so much more than that.”  

Many carers dedicate their entire life to looking after those they love. For these people, their own happiness and well-being is determined by the happiness of those they care for. An estimated 6,000 people take on caring responsibilities every day. That’s why, I’d like to take a moment to reassure your readers that we are here to help.

We are proud to say that Revitalise is a place where carers and their loved ones can come at the times when they need us the most and simply spend time together. Carers can choose to accompany their loved one or enjoy a break elsewhere. Either way they can hand over the caring role to us and have a rest.
