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 Old Alresford Cottage
Respite and Day Care for individuals living in their own home is one of the most important services that is provided. Carers or family members often need a break to recharge their batteries from the demands of providing 24-hour care. Old Alresford Cottage is 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, as they definitely deserve one from time to time.
All Respite Care Residents are treated as one of the Home’s long-term Residents for the duration of their stay. Still receiving the same level of person-centred care that is delivered to each resident, to the same level of quality and attention. Respite visits can vary from just a few hours to a few weeks and repeat stays can be planned ahead of time.
This service is designed to provide the main carer with some time away, giving an opportunity for local people to experience what Old Alresford Cottage Residential Care Home has to offer.
