Respite care

Respite care is for people who wish to stay with us on a short term basis, its a temporary solution whenever you need the extra help.

A helping hand when you need it

It can be for any number of reasons, such as for people who need a little extra support whilst recovering from an illness or operation and can be from as little as one week to as long as the service is required.

Respite care is also available to give the carers of someone who is unable to look after themselves time to recuperate and take a rest. Safe in the knowledge that who they are looking after is well looked after.

Whatever the reason, all of our respite residents can enjoy a wide variety of leisure and recreation pursuits. They’ll have access to delicious and nutritionally balanced home cooked meals prepared by our inhouse chef.

Here is also the opportunity to benefit from meeting new friends, which is a great experience in itself for some people with limited social interaction in their homes.

A very warm welcome by our friendly and reliable staff is always given and we’re happy to help and make things as comfortable as possible. Some of our permanent residents, first sampled our care home through a respite period of care. It’s a great way to get to know us and sample the standard of care on offer.

No matter how short the stay our inclusive approach is always welcoming and professional to all our respite residents no matter how brief their stay is.

Our aim is to ensure that they maintain their freedom of choice and independence whilst providing them with around-the-clock support and security to ensure peace of mind and a happy time.
