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.


"My stay at Brendoncare was delightful. I spent two weeks convalescing after a hip replacement. The staff were always ready to listen and to help in any way they could. Nothing was too much trouble. There was always a good selection of meals on the daily menus which were freshly cooked on the premises. I have recently visited the care home as I am staying with them later this year after hand surgery. It now has facilities for clients to use at any time, a kitchen and lounge area. This very much appealed to me as my sleeping is very poor so I will now be able to read a book or use my iPad during the wee small hours. I highly recommend the Brendoncare home."
Respite resident, August 2017

“On behalf of all Mum’s family, I would like you to convey our heartfelt thanks to every member of staff for their unfailing kindness to Mum whilst she was there. Their efforts made the whole experience as smooth as it possibly could be. We genuinely could not fault a thing.
“Everything, from the lovely meals and the super fast laundry service to the clean and cosy accommodation, made Knightwood Court feel as close to a home from home as could be. Most important of all, Mum was treated with kindness, humour and respect by all staff at all times. From maintenance, housekeeping and reception staff to management and care staff, Mum was offered nothing but unfailing friendliness and patience. The ability of the care staff to offer unflagging cheerfulness as well as make unhurried time to chat and socialise was just as important to Mum, and us, as the more practical help they give.”
Daughter of respite resident, October 2016

“I am enjoying my stay at Brendoncare Knightwood. The care and treatment has been excellent and I have received a lot of help. The staff are always happy.”
Respite resident, October 2016

“We wish to express our appreciation to all the staff for all their care and attention given to my mother during her short stay with you.”
Family of respite resident, September 2016

“I am enjoying my stay at Brendoncare Knightwood. The facilities are superb. The food is what one would expect from a first class restaurant and the staff are there to make your stay a happy experience.”
Respite resident in Knightwood Court, August 2016

“I don’t know where to begin to thank you all so much for all the wonderful care you have given me during my two week stay with you after my back operation. You are a special group of people and are so good at what you do and always with lovely smiles too. I am certainly going to miss you all when I get back home.”
Respite resident, July 2016

“I found it a very nice place to live and received plenty of help from people. The gardens were very nice to sit in or walk around. It’s a place I would consider staying permanently in the future.”
Respite resident in Knightwood Court, July 2016

“We all know how difficult it is to find a comfortable care home for an elderly relative. But there is one tucked away in the woodlands near Chandlers Ford which is run by the charity Brendoncare. At the beginning of this year Brendoncare Knightwood opened as a residential home. I have been able to move into the area to be near my daughter, and am so comfortable here.”
Resident of Knightwood Court, May 2016

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.
