2016/18 Free respite care application

The Amersham and High Wycombe Branch of Parkinson’s UK operates a new Respite Care scheme that started on 1 October 2016, which is funded by resources of the Branch. The aim is to benefit carers for people with Parkinson’s (PWP), by giving individuals up to 20 free respite care hours provided by Universal Care.

Universal Care Ltd, Beaconsfield, will provide care once they have received this completed and approved Application Form from the Branch. The Branch only has sufficient funds for up to 20 approved applicants and there is, therefore, no guarantee of future availability. Applicants are advised, therefore, to check on availability before applying.   Contact details

Terms and conditions

The new scheme offers up to 20 applicants, who join within the year 1 October 2016 to 30 September 2017, 20 free hours of care each. Applicants must start using their allocated hours within three months of joining to stay in the Scheme, and must use their 20 free hours by 30 September 2018. Any unclaimed hours at that date will be lost.
