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.
Respite care is short-term assistance for individuals who need some extra support at a particular point, for example after an illness or operation. It can help people recover their health and strength before returning home or provide a much-needed break.
Care homes, like those run by Brendoncare, offer respite for those needing nursing, help with personal care, those who want a change of scene or some friendly company. The homes provide activities and a fun atmosphere for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks.
Respite can also provide a break for carers. Everyone knows that that caregiving is a demanding job whether that be for a partner, family member or friend. Respite care can allow you to have some quality time off or even a holiday, with the reassurance that your loved one is well looked after by qualified and experienced staff in a homely environment.
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 essential part of everyday life, and our chefs spend time with residents, finding out their likes and dislikes. Our fundamental values of kindness, care, choice and community shape the care given across all Brendoncare homes.
Whether you are a family member looking after a loved one or a qualified carer, taking a break now and then can make a positive difference to your wellbeing. You could be going on holiday, having an operation or even wanting to take a few days to yourself to recharge.
You can’t take care of others until you’ve taken care of yourself. Using a respite care home can allow you to focus on being yourself without worrying. At Brendoncare, we care for those you care for too.
As a respite care provider, our approach is simple; our qualified and experienced staff will develop personalised care and support plans, devised around your needs and preferences. You will receive 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.
Respite care is generally self-funded using income from pensions, investments, savings and benefits, although as a charitable Foundation Brendoncare is hoping to be able to offer some financial assistance for respite in the future.
