Respite Care

Professional care

within luxury settings for short term stays

MACC Care is proud to offer professional respite care of the highest quality, across its extended care homes family. They say that a ‘change is as good as a rest’ and professional respite care can provide the perfect ‘pick-me-up’ for residents – or a place to convalesce and gain strength, perhaps after a period of illness or a stay in hospital.

Respite care also offers families and carers a break from their care commitments – perhaps necessary due to illness, or freeing the time to take a holiday, attend to other commitments or simply to rest and recharge the batteries.

Who is respite care suitable for?

Respite care is perfect for those who would benefit from a short-term stay – ranging from a matter of weeks to several months – within a safe, welcoming and luxurious care environment offering 24-hour residential and nursing support.

Some residents and their families or carers benefit from regular, recurring respite stays, allowing time for loved ones and everyone involved in their care to enjoy a break. And a many residents will attest, such is the level of luxury and facilities at MACC Care, that many of our homes feel like 5* hotels!

Respite care can also be useful to pave the way for longer-term care, helping residents to get a feel for the care home environment and the fun and friendship that comes from supportive community life.

“I spent a week in respite over Christmas. I felt safe and secure, the staff have popped in and out regularly to check on me and my requests. Everyone is friendly. The Dora Rose building is set in lovely grounds and area. I will come again.”
