Reasons to stay with Caring Homes this festive season
Christmas and New Year are a special time in our homes, 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 festive season:
As we get older, we may find we spend more time on our own. This can sometimes feel lonely, boring or make us miss friends or family. Many of our residents have made lasting friendships, or simply had good company when they wanted it.
Round the clock care
With a respite stay residents have access to care and support 24/7 to give them peace of mind that good care and great company is always on hand. This is in comparison to Domiciliary Care which is based on a visit from a carer at a set time and duration.
A cosy place to stay
During the winter months, many older people face tough decisions about whether to keep their home warm or pay for other essentials. As the days start to grow colder and the nights draw in, our homes offer a warm and safe place to stay, with freshly prepared meals every mealtime.
Daily activities to suit every interest
Our Wellbeing and Activities Teams offer a wide range of daily activities to get involved in, including dancing, art, cooking and Christmas and New Year celebrations. What’s more, we often invite the local communities in to get involved, such as local schools to read with our residents, or maybe some carol singing, and even visits from therapy animals.
Family and friends are always welcome
At Caring Homes we make sure Christmas can be enjoyed by our residents and their relatives. We welcome families to join us for Christmas lunch or residents can spend the day at home with family if they prefer.
Christmas means many things to many people—typically a time for food, family and festivities. But for people living with dementia it can be more difficult. Click here for 7 tips from the Alzheimer’s Society on ways to help someone living with dementia over the festive period.
