Short Term Respite Care

We offer a range of short-term or respite care packages in our homes for people that do not require long stay or permanent admission to a care home.

Short stay care may be required for a number of reasons such as:

  • Respite care enables home based carers the opportunity to take scheduled holidays or breaks throughout the year. This may be for a few days or a few weeks. Carers can relax with peace of mind knowing that their relative or patient is in a safe and homely environment with 24-hour care available.
  • Emergency Respite/Short stay when the normal package of care in a persons usual place of care breaks down either because the carer becomes ill or the person receiving care develops a short term illness that requires clinical intervention that cannot be managed or provided at home but does not require hospital admission.

Respite stays also build a relationship between the individual, the carer, the home and staff, that can be beneficial should a more permanent stay at the home become necessary at some point in the future.

Our aim is to help those who come to live with us , however short their stay, to remain in control of their own lives, as far as possible, and enable them to maintain their independence.

Therefore a person personal preferences and care needs are incorporated into their individual care package to ensure continuity of care.

Person centred care is the term for this. Our philosophy is simple - our residents should still feel as if they are living at home with additional support and care.
