A short stay, also known as a respite stay, is usually for a minimum of seven days. Staying for respite is useful for people who want to experience our care home before committing to move in permanently. It's also useful for people who want to take a short break and who enjoy spending time with others, whilst not having to worry about cooking or cleaning. We also find people book a short stay when their family or carers are going away on holiday, to give peace of mind that their loved one is in a safe and secure environment.
Our respite rooms are fully furnished and include a bed, wardrobe, television, curtains, bedside table and chair. Most of our rooms are en suite.
If you or your loved one decide to make a permanent move into one of our care homes you will have your own room. We encourage residents to personalise their room with their own belongings so they can create a homely feel and make it their own. For example, you can bring your own bed, furniture, chairs, pictures and television. The majority of our rooms are en-suite and we also have a few double rooms which can accommodate two people.
Each room has a telephone connection so residents can have their own landline number and wi-fi. We also have guest wi-fi access throughout our care homes. Every room has a television aerial and an emergency call system in the bedroom and bathroom. We also offer residents a pendant to wear which is linked to the call system.
Please contact our care homes directly for a friendly chat about moving in for a short or permanent stay.
