Short break or respite care is available for residents who require care for a temporary period. We offer respite care for just a night’s stay or for up to several weeks at a time.
Both our Romsey Care Home and New Milton Care Home in Hampshire have dedicated respite rooms that are available to book in advance. So if you are the primary carer and need some professional help to provide a change of scenery for your loved one, you can contact us to book some respite care.
We understand that as a family member providing full-time care for your loved one, it is easy for stress and tension build up without realising. Quite often a short break or holiday can help everyone relax and recharge their batteries. It is important that as a carer you make time for your own needs too, which not only benefits you but also your loved one.
Respite care can also be used in situations where short-term care is needed away from the usual surroundings.
Short stays are also a useful way of deciding which care home is the best option for you and your loved one. You can book a trial period, so you and your relative have the time to become familiar with the home and assess whether it’s the right place for their needs.
It is possible to book short stays throughout the year and reservations are made on a first come first serve basis and subject to availability.
