Respite Care & Short Breaks
Everyone deserves time out. Whether you care for a relative or are in need of care yourself, taking a break from your usual routine can do the world of good.
Respite care is a service for people who wish to stay with us on a short term basis. This can be for people who need a little extra support whilst recovering from an illness or operation and can be for one week or a few months. Respite stays can also be arranged to give the carer of someone who is unable to look after them-selves a well-earned rest.
Whatever the reason we want our respite residents to enjoy a wide variety of recreation and leisure pursuits, and to indulge themselves in our delicious and nutritionally balanced home cooked meals prepared in-house by our resident chef. It is an opportunity to meet new friends and we guarantee a very warm welcome by our friendly and reliable staff. Many respite residents, having first sampled home life through a respite period of care, do in fact end up staying permanently. It is a great way to sample the standard of care on offer.
Our inclusive approach is applied to all our respite residents no matter how short their stay is and we aim to ensure that they maintain their independence and freedom of choice whilst providing them with the security of around-the-clock support to ensure optimum peace of mind.
The perfect location
Many of our homes are set in beautiful countryside locations and are ideal destinations for respite breaks or a short stay while a carer is on holiday.
Meeting individuals' needs
Our aim is to provide seamless continuity of care and our well-trained staff work hard to ensure that everyone's personal preferences are respected.
Prior to admission, the care home manager will arrange to meet you in the convenience of your own home, or at the care home. We then assess your care needs, start to get to know you and your likes and dislikes and then tailor a care plan to suit you.
