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.

Benefits of respite care

As a carer you’ll be able to relax, knowing that your loved one is in a warm, supportive and safe environment. And, if you’re able to visit, you can look forward to enjoying quality time with your loved one, knowing our carers are looking after all their care needs.

Respite care can also be a valuable break for those being cared for. It provides a chance to enjoy a change of scenery, meet new people, and try out some new activities.

Respite care provides an opportunity to trial the care home experience. Some residents enjoy their respite break with us so much, they stay with us permanently.
