Child & Young Adult Care
Do you need time
We understand how difficult it can be caring for a child with long-term health conditions. It's vital that you have time to yourself (or time to look after yourself) and that's where Saxon Care can support.
Support to allow you to take a break
Caring for a child with a long term health need can be difficult and it’s important that parents are able to get the right help and support to make this a little easier. We work closely with parents, family members, teachers and nurses to help provide tailored support for your child, allowing you to get some well earned rest.
Our carers are able to help support with a range of things to help reduce the pressure and allow parents to have some time to themselves. A care package for your child will be specific to their needs and can support with a variety of things such as personal care, medication management and help with morning and evening routines. Our care packages can be tailored to help ease the pressure in whatever way we can, even helping with things like meal preparation and play and activities, allowing parents to get some respite.
Support to access education
From nursery through to school or college, our carers are able to support children and young adults both to access education and to learn. This may involve helping provide transport to get your child to and from school, helping them to integrate in the classroom by supporting them to socialise with their peers, or assisting them with school work.
Supporting with outings and appointments
We can offer support on days out, planned trips and outings or to and from appointments, where it can always be helpful to have an extra pair of hands.
