Respite Care

At Knightwood Court in Chandlers Ford, Eastleigh, Nr Southampton, Hampshire, we offer a range of respite care services which give older people and their carers short-term breaks.

Knightwood Court offers spacious, pleasant en-suite rooms available within our residential care home. Caring, expert staff focus on well-being, independence and a return to 'home life' as soon as possible.

The highly flexible services cover:

  • respite - people who are caring for an elderly relative or friend can call on us to provide a respite service, on a regular, occasional or one-off basis. Respite care gives support to families and allows carers to take a valuable break or holiday.
  • support for couples - if one partner's care needs have increased, the second may temporarily need some extra help and support. We have adjoining rooms available.
  • families in crisis - we can provide valuable 'breathing time' while families recover from a setback or need time to look into long-term residential care options. This can help to avoid rushed decisions and costly, disruptive mistakes.

Supported Care Apartment - we also have a self-contained, well-appointed two bedroom apartment available for short-term rent for people over 50 who need respite care or just a break for between one and six weeks. There is full access to Knightwood's excellent facilities as well as the peace of mind which comes from knowing care and support services are on hand 24 hours a day. 

We offer high quality hotel services, a relaxed welcoming environment, beautiful landscaped grounds and purpose-built modern facilities.


"Mum often tells me how staff always seem to have time to have a chat and are not in a hurry to rush away."

Annual Relatives Survey, November 2018

"My father spent the last two weeks of his life here. The care and compassion shown to him was immense. The staff showed a care way beyond ‘just a job’. I can’t put into words what that meant to my mother and I and indeed my father. I can’t put a price on what it meant. I would have no hesitation in recommending this home to other people."

Daughter of resident

"My mother was impressed with the warmth, friendliness and professionalism of all staff. She was well looked after. She has had short stays at Knightwood for the last 10 years and this facility has helped mum to enjoy time with her family nearby. I can't speak highly enough of all at Brendoncare Knightwood - it is very well run."

Daughter of resident

"During her last years my Mum lived at Brendoncare Knightwood Court where she was, without fail, treated with thoughtful and dignified care and respect by all staff, day and night. Care, housekeeping, maintenance and management staff consistently showed patience and friendly interest in their dealings with her, and genuine concern that she was content. They made her feel secure and well cared for every single day."

Daughter of resident

"Mum was living at Brendoncare for nearly nine years and from day one until the end she was extremely happy there. Socially, she was involved until her latter time there and the care from everyone involved with her was first class. Nothing was too much trouble from first thing in the morning until the last thing at night. We, as a family, cannot thank you all enough."

Daughter of resident.

Respite Care

Brendoncare Respite Care (Winchester)

Do you care for someone who needs support while you go on holiday or have a bit of time to focus on your needs? Perhaps you need some short-term care or some support while you recover from a hospital stay or operation? We can help.

Our approach to respite care is simple; a care and support plan devised around your needs and a warm welcome to our home, however long you are staying with us. Plus, there are options to extend your visit, if you feel you would like to stay with us longer, so you can take as long as you need to recuperate.

At all of our homes there is a full range of activities on offer for everyone to enjoy or quieter spaces for more tranquil moments. Food is an important part of every day and our chefs spend time with residents, finding out their likes and dislikes. While every Brendoncare home is different, the care provided by each is firmly based on the values of kindness, care, choice and community.

Get in touch today and find out how we can help.
