Dudley Crossroads provides respite care to informal (unpaid) carers in the Dudley borough. This can be anyone looking after a relative or friend (18+) in their own home who has a physical disability. This can include heart problems, Stroke, Sensory impairments, Parkinson's disease, MS and many other conditions. We can help by visiting the home for a 2-3 hour call a week and staying with the person with the disability while their carer goes out. While we are there, as well as looking after the cared for, we can do some housework, prepare meals and drinks, or other things that help the carer. We hope to allow carers to 'recharge their batteries' and assist them to continue in their caring role.

Help is provided on a regular basis using the same worker.

We are a small local charity founded in 1982 and all our services are not for profit.

Dudley Crossroads is a Community Information Point.
