Respite Services

Respite services can offer carers a much-needed break from caring by providing replacement residential support. It may be that you need extra support after an operation or illness. Or it could be that you require occasional or regular respite for both you and your long-term carer.

Respite care not only provides your carer with a valuable break from their duties but provides you with a change of scenery, the opportunity to meet new people, try out new experiences and activities while being fully supported by our team and receiving an excellent level of care.

Waltham House provide respite care for anything from a few days to a few weeks, meaning you can chose your length of stay to suit you. You can expect the same level of care and access to facilities that our full time residents enjoy during your stay. We want you to feel at comfortable and secure, so we’ll take the time to help you settle in and make your room feel like a home-from-home. And just like our full time residents, we will work with you to devise a full care plan to ensure your personal and care needs are met and any recovery goals or aims can be worked towards and achieved.

You can read more about what a care plan is and why it’s so important in our care plan section.

If you would like to organise a visit to view our facilities and speak with the team, please call 01472 827725.
