Short Stay & Respite Care

Our 21 care homes situated in Dorset, Hampshire, West Sussex and Wiltshire all provide short stay and respite care options for residents.

Whatever your care needs, we are here for you, whether you require a shorter stay, an extended stay over multiple weeks – or even multiple short stays through-out the year, we offer the same high quality care services enjoyed by our long-term residents.

When is short stay or respite care required? 

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.

Helping the transition into care

We understand that the decision to move into a care home can be difficult. Our short stay and respite services provide residents and their families with an option to trial life at our care homes for a short time. This gives everyone concerned a chance to experience a care home with no commitment and can aid you in making the best decision about future care options.

Many of our short stay residents come back to us time and time again and consistently feedback on the excellence of our services.

Whether it’s for a short period of recovery, a respite break for yourself or a 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.
