Convalescence/Respite Care

Supporting you through challenging times..
Sometimes, all that people need is the opportunity to be supported whilst they return to full health or indeed take a break from the responsibilities of looking after themselves on a full-time basis. With this in mind, Barchester Healthcare deliver a full-programme of convalescence and respite care, ranging from an overnight stay through to regular breaks, possibly whilst they decide if moving into one of our homes is the right thing for them.

If you are a carer you can relax, knowing that your relative, friend or patient is in a safe, welcoming environment with first class care tailored to their needs. A respite care stay at one of our homes gives many people the opportunity to experience at first hand the quality of care and service of which we are proud at Barchester.

Building relationships
Convalescence and respite care stays are generally short term; however, the relationships built between the home and resident give great reassurance to all concerned if a longer stay ever becomes necessary, or indeed, as happens in many cases, people simply decide that they prefer living in a nursing home environment.

Respecting your needs
Our aim with all stays, whether short or longer term is to provide seamless continuity of care, and our well-trained and qualified staff work hard to ensure that everyone's personal desires and preferences are respected.

Prior to admission, we will arrange to meet you either in the convenience of your own home or at the nursing home. We can then assess your care needs, start to get to know you and your likes and dislikes and then tailor a care plan to suit you.
