Respite Care

Respite care offers short-term, temporary care for older people in one of our care homes when their usual care is unavailable.

Respite care is often part of recovery after an illness, accident or surgery when regular carers need additional support.

A respite stay can also be a way for a carers to have a break from care-related duties, knowing that the person will be properly looked after. This is very common when family members or friends are acting as a carer and take some time out to go on holiday for a few weeks.
