If you’re providing support or care for an older person, you could probably use a break around this time of year.
Caring for someone can be a rewarding experience but it can also be stressful and leave you emotionally or physically exhausted.
As a carer, you should try to take breaks from your caring role. Taking regular breaks will also help you to be happier, healthier and have the motivation to keep caring.
We’re pleased to tell you that we can provide temporary, short-term care, so you can recharge, attend to daily life, or even go on holiday.
Your loved one can be safe and sound in our home, with 24/7 care staff, great company and a social calendar that’s always full of activities.
Naturally, we make the most of special occasions such as Christmas and New Year and our in-house catering prepares nutritious and delicious seasonal menus using fresh, local produce. Special dietary requirements are happily catered for and family members and friends are very welcome to visit and share a meal too.
These are just some of the services we offer:
Social support – Companionship, emotional support, opportunities to socialise and remain part of your community.
