Respite / Day Care
"At this time of my life, I would be unable to live on my own. After staying at Old Alresford Cottage for a short break, I have returned to live here permanently. The feeling of being safe and secure in a warm, friendly environment is very important to me."
Patricia Barker, Resident at Old Alresford Cottage
Respite Care at OAC
Respite and Day Care for individuals living in their own home is one of the most important services that we provide. Carers or family members often need a break to recharge their batteries from the demands of providing 24 hour care, and we are happy to take over the care of you or your loved one for any length of time.
This type of care provides a welcome break for families and full time carers, they definitely deserve one from time to time.
All Respite Care residents are treated as one of our residential residents for the duration of your stay and still receive the same level of person-centred care that we deliver to all of our residents. Respite visits can vary from just a few hours to a few weeks and repeat visits can be planned ahead of time.
This service is designed to provide the main carer with some time away, and gives an opportunity for local people to experience what Old Alresford Cottage Residential Care Home has to offer.
We would always recommend you come in for a short stay first if you are unsure about going into a care home. This way, you can experience firsthand all the benefits, both social and medical, to residing at Alresford Cottage.
This provides future residents with the opportunity to experience the homely environment and quality care services as excellent facilities on offer at our home.
