Replacement Care in Torbay

Replacement Care Hospitality Pilot

The Replacement Care Team are currently looking at more innovative ways for unpaid Carers to receive a break from their caring role.

We are using hotels and other types of accommodation to provide short stays at a discounted rate.   We currently have approximately 18 hotels in Torbay and more than 200 nationally which offer the scheme, which includes a discounted rate for Carers when booked through the Replacement Care Team.

  • Carers can:
    • take a break themselves whilst the person they care for remains at home
    • arrange for the person they care for to have a break with their paid care worker, or
    • arrange for both the unpaid Carer and person they care for to take a break together.

More details about how the scheme works is available here.
