Respite care at Hampton Lodge

Respite care, also known as short-term or short-stay care, is a temporary living arrangement at a care home. It gives both carers, and those being cared for, a bit of time off and a chance to recharge their batteries.

At Hampton Lodge, we offer nursing and residential dementia respite care. Everyone staying with us for a respite break will receive personalised care, tailored to their individual needs. They’ll have their own furnished room and be encouraged to take part in the life of our home and the many activities on offer.

Where are we? 

Hampton Lodge is situated just a couple of miles inland from Southampton’s famous docks and the coast. We’re easily accessible by public transport and close to the city centre. 

We are located next door to MHA's Hebron Court retirement living apartment and MHA's new Southampton Live at Home scheme.

Activities, trips and events 

Our two Activity Coordinators keep our residents active and entertained with a varied weekly activities calendar. Activities include: weekly external entertainment, baking club, knitting bingo, quizzes and games, nail care, armchair exercise sessions, therapy dog and animal visits and a Church service once a week, plus personal support from our Chaplain employed at Hampton Lodge. 

Our residents enjoy seasonal visits from local school children and we make the most of any opportunity to have a themed event – including Easter and Christmas celebrations, Valentine’s Day, and bonfire night.

Award-winning music therapy 

Hampton Lodge is committed to providing alternative therapies such as music therapy to help alleviate isolation and the symptoms for those living with dementia. Our trained therapist is part of MHA's award-winning music therapy service which is funded by charitable donations. They spend a day each week at the home and interacts directly with residents through live music therapy sessions. This includes singing, playing simple percussion instruments or responding to musical cues in a one-to-one or group setting. Take a look at our video to find out more about this life-changing therapy. 

“We watched a music therapy session. Staff took care to involve everyone in the room, and we saw people's facial expressions and body language change, indicating a positive impact on their mood.”  CQC report

Chaplaincy and pastoral support 

Hampton Lodge is proud to be supported by a dedicated Chaplain, who offers pastoral support to all, whatever their beliefs. Our Chaplain is in the home three days a week, providing a listening presence, companionship and one-to-one pastoral support for all residents, their friends and relatives, and staff members - irrespective of their beliefs - and organise worship for those who wish to participate. Where appropriate, residents are encouraged to maintain links with local faith communities.

Seize the day – making unique and memorable opportunities 

Funded through charitable support, every MHA care home also prides itself in being able to offer unique and memorable opportunities and activities for residents to quite literally help them 'seize the day'.
