Respite at Home

Princess Marina House now offers a 'Respite at Home' service to help veterans and carers in need of a break.

Respite at Home

A qualified support assistant comes to the veteran's home for up to five hours at a time and return visits can be arranged every few weeks.

The assistant will follow a personal care plan, developed in advance, and provide a friendly visit with activities, light snacks, and help with needs such as medication, mobility, and personal care.

They may also take the veteran out on a visit to places of interest or to our Veterans Lunch Club.

The service is available to RAF veterans, partners, widows, and widowers living within a 10 to 15-mile radius of Rustington. And while we are asking for a £6 contribution per hour, the service can be provided at a reduced rate or even free of charge in cases of financial hardship.

If you would like information on our Respite at Home service, please email

Our Veterans Lunch Club and Respite at Home services are supported with a grant from the Aged Veterans Fund.
