Our respite care placements, also known as short-term care, provide 24 hour professional care for a short period in our care homes. Respite care can be needed for many different reasons, including to support rehabilitation, to cover an interruption in an individual’s normal package of care, or simply to allow a family member caring for a loved one to have a well-deserved break to revitalise.
We offer short-term and respite placements at Autumn Gardens and Anastasia Lodge. People with residential, dementia, nursing and palliative care needs can access our short-term and respite placements.
Short-term and respite care packages can be anything from a couple of weeks to a few months as needed. There is limited availability for respite and short-term care and it is subject to room availability.
