Respite Care

Here at Hazelwood Care Home, we proudly provide unrivalled levels of Respite Care in a purposely-designed care facility. Making the decision to stay with us, no matter how long the duration, should mark the beginning of a new and exciting chapter, one that allows residents to feel confident and happy while support is provided during their time of need.

Our Respite Care service allows individuals with the opportunity to rest and recover from a recent hospital stay and for caregivers to have a well-earned break. Our expert team is fully trained to understand and deal with a variety of health needs, and as well as provide tailored care to residents 24 hours a day.

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.

When is Respite Care Necessary?

Respite Care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers. We understand that everyone needs a break occasionally. If you require caregiving duties to be taken off your hands, you can relax knowing that a safe, welcoming and supportive place is here for your loved one. Accommodating anything from a week to a few months, we provide respite care for those looking for short-term support. Residents are welcome to arrange a stay for a trial period to find out if Hazelwood is the home they are looking for.
