Respite Care is a planned short admission of one or two weeks, which enables the carer to have a break or take a holiday.
Applications are made through the person’s local Public Health Nurse. Respite admissions may be placed in any of our three wards depending on bed availability.
Respite Care cannot be extended as bookings have been made in advance by other families and only on occasion would a cancellation arise.
Residents and/or families may visit before admission but only by prior arrangement.
