Atkinsons Homes

There are many benefits to respite care or short stay.

Respite care means taking a break from caring, while the person you care for is looked after by someone else. 

It lets you take time out to look after yourself and helps stop you from becoming exhausted and run down.

For our guests, it can offer increased social interaction, new experiences and a change of scenery which can improve health, welling and uplift mood. For carers, it can often provide the opportunity to attend an event, take a holiday or simply enjoy a few days to rest.

Respite care and convalescent care is short term care designed to help people recover from an operation or illness with the support of our dedicated care staff facilities. Respite stays are a minimum of two weeks and can last up to a few months. All of our Registered Care Managers are passionate about tailoring Care Plans to individual needs and requirements to help them recover as soon as possible.

What is more, respite breaks can be enjoyed on a regular basis to give people a chance to get to know other residents and colleagues and familiarise themselves with life in one of our homes as preparation for full-time residential care. A sort of ‘trial run’ so that transition is easier if/when the time comes to make the permanent move into a home.  

Our aim is to give peace of mind as well as providing quality care, we take the time to get to know our residents and understand their likes and dislikes, even those who are only with us for a few weeks. That way loved ones can enjoy peace of mind while their loved ones truly feel ‘at home‘.
