What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is a short-term care option, providing both planned and unplanned respite breaks from a full-time caregiver. Whether individuals have experienced a fall, are recovering from an illness or the primary caregiver is looking to have a short break, respite care is the ideal solution. Our home offers first-class care in purpose-built, luxury surroundings, which provides residents with the best chance of full recovery. Many of our residents after experiencing respite care enjoy their stay so much that they choose to stay with us permanently.

Respite Care FAQs

At Hazelwood Care Home, respite care is available to individuals needing short-term support. This service facilitates recovery and aid with daily activities, giving caregivers the opportunity to take a break. Furthermore, for those considering full-time care, our respite care programme allows for a 4-week trial period to assess its suitability for long-term arrangements.

All residents at Hazelwood Care Home receive the same quality of care and services, regardless of the duration of their stay. Throughout their time with us, residents can expect to have a private bedroom, access to meals and refreshments, engagement in various activities and entertainment, use of our in-house facilities, and assistance with daily tasks. Depending on the individual’s care needs, nursing care may also be provided.

The duration of respite care stays is determined based on the specific needs of each individual and the availability of respite care beds at Hazelwood Care Home. To facilitate a smooth transition and enable residents to benefit fully from our support, we have established a minimum stay requirement. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact our team.
