Respite Care & Short Breaks

Everyone deserves time out. Whether you care for a relative or are in need of care yourself, taking a break from your usual routine can do the world of good.

As a carer you can relax, knowing that your relative, friend or patient is in a safe, welcoming environment with expert care tailored to their needs. A respite stay at a Barchester care home gives many people the opportunity to enjoy time with friendly and welcoming staff and residents.

Respite care is ideal for those looking for convalescence, either following a hospital stay or an illness. Many people also arrange a trial stay as a temporary resident to see if the home is the right choice for them as their new home. 

Here at Barchester we are committed to providing you with the care and support you need to get back on your feet.

The perfect location

Many of our homes are set in beautiful countryside locations and are ideal destinations for respite breaks or a short stay while a carer is on holiday. 

Meeting individuals' needs

Our aim is to provide seamless continuity of care and our well-trained staff work hard to ensure that everyone's personal preferences are respected.

Prior to admission, the general manager will arrange to meet you in the convenience of your own home, or at the care home. We 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.
