What is Respite Care?

When someone requires short-term care, respite care is considered the best option. Our care team is always there to assist residents with their needs and reduce as much stress as possible. A person might consider a temporary stay in a care home if they are recovering from a fall, an illness or the primary carer needs a well-earned break from their responsibilities. Residents will receive a personal care plan throughout their stay to ensure accurate and effective care.
