What is respite care?

Respite care, also known as short-term or short-stay care, is a temporary living arrangement for residents within one of our care homes across England, Scotland and Wales. It gives both carers, and those being cared for, a bit of time off and a chance to recharge their batteries.

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

Whilst you're taking a break, your loved one can enjoy:
