Respite care

Respite care is available in all of our in all of our residential care homes across North Devon, Somerset, Dorset, and West Sussex, whether you are looking for a few weeks or a little bit longer.

This can be useful for those who may need extra support for a short period, particularly after a stay in hospital or to give carers a break. It can also offer a chance to enjoy a change of scenery, meet new people and try some new activities and experiences while being gently introduced to care on a more permanent basis.
