Respite care

We're here when you need us

Whilst living in a retirement village is a perfect fit for some people, personal circumstances can vary, and can continue to change as life evolves.

If continuing to live at home is the best option for you or your loved one, you may find that some balance is needed from time to time. Being connected to the caring and vibrant village communities offers a welcome change for those who are normally living at home – often alleviating feelings of loneliness and boredom.

You may need to facilitate a break for carers, or perhaps you need extra care following a hospital stay or surgery. Whatever the circumstance, respite care provides care for as long as you need – whether it’s for a single night or for a few weeks.

Our priority is to listen to your individual needs and to customise our services to create a happy outcome for everyone.

What respite care means to residents and families:

"The environment in the care centre and the wider village is wonderful, and very happy. Staff attitudes reflect love and care for their jobs and their patients. Nothing is too much trouble.” Alex, respite resident
