What is Respite at Home?
Respite at Home provides the companionship and expertise of a qualified support assistant in a veteran's home. This special new service, launched in late 2016, is designed for people who are less mobile and can't get to our drop-in lunch clubs.
How does it help?
By visiting veterans regularly, chatting, eating together and enabling them to do the things they love, we're helping these amazing men and women keep their independence and dignity.
Respite at Home also gives carers – often partners or adult children – a much-needed break, as well as peace of mind.
Respite at Home is already proving a success, but there are many more elderly veterans who need support like this. Your donation can help let veterans know we haven't forgotten them, or the sacrifices they made in the name of our freedom and protection.
