What is Respite Care? 

The purpose of Respite Care is to provide a break to carers and loved ones who usually care for someone day-to-day. Respite Care can be given in a variety of ways such as by day care centres, in one’s own home by a visiting paid carer, or in a care home. This means that Respite Care can vary in length, from a few hours to short breaks that can last several weeks. Respite Care can also be used as an alternative care option for those who require additional help during their recovery from an illness or hospital procedure.

Respite Care at The Hazelwell Care Home

At The Hazelwell, those who require Respite Care will receive all the same support services that we offer residents with Residential, Nursing, and Dementia needs. This ranges from personal care and help with daily tasks, to around-the-clock assistance from our highly-trained staff and encouragement in social activities. No matter how long our residents stay with us, they can all benefit from the in-house facilities we have, such as fine dining, our rooftop salon, the library, and much much more.

With all of our care services, our priority is meeting the needs of our residents and exceeding standards. Whether it’s day care or a longer-term stay, we take a person-centred approach in everything we do.
