We offer the same high quality care services enjoyed by our long-term residents on a short-term basis. Whether it’s for a short period of recovery, a respite break or simply a trial run for those looking for a permanent move, we offer a home from home where residents can live their life, their way.
Providing resident focused care, our care team can accommodate most clinical and care needs and will work with residents, their family and/or friends to gain a full understanding of care requirements. Our aim is to ensure that residents’ needs are met, and they feel safe throughout their stay with us.
Our short stay and respite care may be suitable for someone being discharged from hospital, needing a little additional support during their recuperation or recovery process.
Others simply like to take a ‘short relaxation break’ with us, perhaps to give a full-time family carer some rest, or indeed have some time out for themselves.
We know that considering a move into residential or nursing care is a big decision at what is often a difficult time. Making a decision on whether a certain care home is the right place can be overwhelming without experiencing what life could be like. We actively encourage a short stay to see what’s it like to live in our home.
Having a short break gives everyone concerned a chance to experience our care home with no commitment, and can aid you in making the best decision about future care options.
“I was impressed with the home, the staff made me feel so very welcome.” – B L, respite resident of Avon Cliff
Avon Cliff’s nurses are available for all residents, at all times. We believe that’s the bedrock of a safe and happy home, providing nurse-led care to manage complex medical conditions, whilst ensuring all residents can stay within their familiar and comfortable home setting should their care needs change.
Our care teams assist with all aspects of daily living for our residents, from personal care to taking regular medications, working flexibly to promote independence providing support to maintain the physical care and comfort of residents.
Our residential care service is designed to provide a comfortable and relaxed home environment where home maintenance, laundry, cooking and housekeeping are taken care of on your behalf.
Although Avon Cliff is not a dementia home, we are committed to supporting our residents to live meaningful and fulfilled lives, and that includes those living with the earlier stages of dementia or cognitive impairment.
End Of Life
We want people to live well with us, making the most of every single day. If that means being together until the end of life, we want our residents to die well with dignity with family around, in familiar surroundings with staff they know well.
