As the nights get longer and temperatures drop, it might be time to consider one of our short respite stays. Whether you're looking for a short break for yourself, or you're a carer in need of a break and want to ensure your loved one is well cared for, our respite stays are available at nearly every Caring Home and offer the same high quality care and attention every resident can expect.
Here are a few reasons you may want to stay with us this autumn:
No financial surprises
We're very transparent about our pricing, and with the cost of living going up, you may be looking to spend time somewhere where you don't have to worry about turning on the heating. The fee you pay with us covers everything, from the care you receive to the meals and snacks you enjoy so there are no nasty financial surprises.
24-hour care and support when you need it
If you need a bit of extra help with daily life then you'll love the support on offer in our homes. From help brushing your teeth and getting dressed to showering or accessing the facilities, a friendly and professional member of the team is always there for you.
The opportunity to make new friends
One great thing about spending time with us this autumn is that it's a way to meet people and make new friends. We welcome people from all walks of life into our homes and you'll always find people with shared interests who will soon become friends.
The chance to try new activities or rekindle old favourites
We have regular schedules full of varied activities that include gentle workouts, arts and crafts, afternoon teas and more so there's always something to do. Equally, if you'd rather relax in the living room or spend some time admiring the changing leaves outside then you're welcome to do that too.
A flexible length of stay
Our respite short stays can be as long as you need them. Some people like to come for a week or two, while others prefer to stay a couple of months to enjoy the comfort of our home during the colder autumn/winter months. You may even decide that you enjoy your break so much that you want to stay on a permanent basis for our residential care.
A change of scenery
Our homes are great if you fancy a change of scenery! Bring along a few home comforts for your bedroom and you'll feel right at home while still enjoying something new.
Enjoy entertainment and visits to the local area
We regularly bring in entertainers to perform for our residents, so if you're a fan of musical acts then there will always be something to look forward to. Similarly, we love taking our residents out into the local area, whether it's a trip to the museum or just popping out for some fish and chips.
A chance to recuperate after a hospital stay
Rest is incredibly important when recovering from a hospital visit, especially if you've undergone surgery. The benefit of staying at one of our care homes is that you can continue to live independently with the peace of mind that our team is always on-hand to help with any tasks you may be struggling with. And all of this is in a relaxed, warm and comfortable environment so you can just focus on your recovery.
A crucial break for carers to do daily chores, go on holiday or simply have some well-earned time off
Our respite services are also important for those who need a break from caring, as a short stay means they can take some time away from their care obligations to catch up on odd jobs or enjoy a holiday themselves.
If you'd like to enquire about a short stay this autumn then just find your nearest home and either give them a call or fill in the enquiry form. A member of the team will get back to you shortly and get things started.
