Respite and Convalescent Care
We offer a wide range of respite care homes services on a short-stay or respite basis. This means carers and the individuals they support can take short breaks, which allow for holidays or emergencies like hospital visits. We offer respite and convalescent care for clients in each of our Care Homes, subject to availability. We are usually able to say around 2 weeks prior to the dates requested if we will have a room available for respite and convalescent care or not. We would need to complete a full assessment of the individual in order to assess if are able to meet their needs in a particular Home. In certain circumstances respite can be extended if needed. Convalescent and respite care services can also be provided for any length of time from one week up to three months. This may be due to someone being well enough to be discharged from hospital but requiring further support for a few weeks before returning home independently.
Respite and convalescent care can provide much needed breaks for families or support following an operation or a period of time spent in hospital. We often have people come to us for respite care several times before eventually choosing to become a permanent resident.
Each of our Homes is decorated to the highest standard, rooms have their own ensuite wet rooms and TV aerial points. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms to their own taste, creating a homely environment for them and their families/loved ones.
In order to maintain close links with families and friends our visiting hours are flexible. We encourage prospective residents to view the Home prior to admission where possible and to bring in a few personal items for their rooms even if they are only with us for a short time.
As much information as possible will be gathered regarding the prospective resident prior to admission in order that we can create a person centered care plan on admission. Please feel free to call us to find out about our availability.
