Respite Care

Here at Ridgeway Rise Care Home, we proudly provide unrivalled levels of Respite Care in purpose-built accommodation. Making the decision to stay with us, no matter how long the stay, should mark the beginning of an exciting chapter, one that allows residents to feel confident and happy while retaining as much independence as possible. Respite Care is your time to rest and recharge with our wonderful team.

Our Respite Care allows individuals the opportunity to rest and recover and also allows family members and caregivers to unwind. Our experienced and compassionate team is fully trained to understand and deal with a variety of health needs, allowing them to be able to provide around-the-clock, personalised care every day.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is a short-term care option, providing both planned and unplanned respite breaks from a usual care giver. Whether it’s to help a loved one with additional nursing requirements after a stay in hospital, to take a break to recharge, or to get some medical treatment for yourself, we’ve created a short-term respite package to allow you to take the time, knowing that you or your loved one is in safe, caring hands. Our home offers first-class care in purpose-built, luxury surroundings, which provide residents with the best chance of full recovery. 

Our Approach to Respite Care

At Ridgeway Rise Care Home, we understand the challenges that carers face when looking after a loved one. It’s difficult to care for yourself when you’re caring for another, but everyone needs to rest at some point. We also knowhow difficult it can be to get back on your feet after experiencing an illness or operation. At our home, we proudly offer our residents a homely environment with a friendly, highly qualified, and experienced care and nursing team, as well as access to our luxury facilities to ensure you have a quick and smooth recovery or break. 

When is Respite Care Necessary?

Respite care is designed to be a positive experience for both residents, and carers of residents. The wellbeing of carers is just as vital as that of the person they are caring for. If a carer is stressed and worn-out, the chances are this will unwillingly impact the quality of care they can offer. Whether you care for a loved one or need a break yourself to recover from an illness or operation, you can relax knowing that a safe, welcoming, and supportive place awaits. Accommodating a stay from one week to a few months, we provide respite care for those looking for short-term support.
