The over-riding purpose of the organisation is to support the Carer of someone, who late in life has developed a mental illness such as dementia or severe depression, living in the Vale of Glamorgan. To meet this aim, the organisation recruits and trains Care Workers to provide respite care which may be in a domiciliary, social or day care setting. The service reduces stress in families/persons responsible for care, avoids the unnecessary admission to hospital or residential care, supplements and complements existing statutory services, and maintains a high standard of care.
