In the UK residential care homes – usually just called Care Homes – are for older people who require a personalised level of care which promotes their independence.
The key to our care is the peace of mind we give our residents. We are there for people who find it difficult to look after themselves and want to have the security of highly skilled staff on-site 24 hours a day.
We will help you with everyday tasks such as:
Respite, or Replacement care is designed to replace care provided that is usually provided in a residents own home. It may be needed so that carers get the chance to look after their own health and well-being, and to take a break from caring. For example, it may be replacement care is needed so that a carer can get over an illness or catch up on their own sleep.
The same level of care and companionship is provided to temporary residents as to those who reside permanently with us. We provide a relaxed atmosphere, a safe environment, and do everything that we can to ensure that the respite care period is an enjoyable event.
Many carers take the opportunity of providing respite care for their loved one. It’s a great way for all concerned to feel refreshed and rested and make the ongoing task of providing care much easier.
Respite Care is available at both Lear House and Elliot House. Please feel free to contact us to find out more about the respite care available.
