respite care

Winter respite at brighterkind

The time you need 

Respite care is for those wishing to stay with us on a short-term basis, whether you temporarily need extra support or are recovering from an illness or operation.

Availability is dependent upon the number of respite beds we have unoccupied. However some care homes do offer a book ahead service. There is no minimum or maximum length of stay. We are flexible so that we can help carers who need a break.

Respite care offers you the care and support you need, within the comfort and security of our care home. Spending anything from a week to a month with us can also provide a short rest for those caring for you at home.

Part of the community

All residents are considered part of the home, and we will make every effort to include you in all recreational activities, mealtimes, and other aspects of life here, whether you’re with us for a week or a few months.

It’s a great opportunity to meet new friends and sample life here.  Many of our respite residents decide to stay permanently with us after seeing the standard of care we offer.
