Respite Care or Short term Care
Respite Care, or short term care, is for those who wish to stay with us on a non-permanent basis for reasons such as recuperation following a stay in hospital or a main carer may be on holiday. Respite care can also be used as a ‘trial visit’ to ensure that the home is right for an individual on a long term basis.
