Respite Care

Penrose Court Care Home warmly welcomes anyone who is looking for a place to rest and recover. If you are looking for short-term care for a loved one or yourself for any reason, then we are here to help. A minimum stay of 3 weeks applies to any respite care package at our luxury care home in Bedfordshire.

Care homes and nursing homes can help people recuperate faster after being ill or spending time in hospital, also allowing time for adaptations to be made to an individual’s home. Many will also arrange for respite care as an alternative when caregivers need time for themselves, or as a trial stay to determine whether the home is a good fit for them to move into permanently.

What Does Respite Care Mean?

Respite care can take many forms including recuperation following a hospital stay or illness or providing a crucial break for carers to go on holiday, or simply having some well-earned time off for themselves. Residents in respite can use this as an opportunity to meet new people and try out new activities.

A respite stay could be anything from a few weeks to several months – depending on each individual’s needs. Respite care is ideal for those looking for convalescence or a trial stay as a temporary resident to see if the home is the right choice for them in the future.

Respite Care FAQs

Respite care at Penrose Court Care Home is available to any individual that requires support on a short-term basis. Respite care provides an opportunity for recovery and assistance with activities of daily living when a caregiver needs a break from their caregiving responsibilities. If you or a loved one needs full-time care, respite care can also be used to trial our home for 4 weeks to see if it’s a right fit for the long-term.

The same levels of care and services are provided to all of our residents, no matter their length of stay. During a resident’s stay, the individual can expect their own bedroom, meals and refreshments, activities and entertainment, access to our in-house facilities, and support with activities of daily living. Depending on the care needs of the individual, nursing care may also be provided.

The length of stay for respite care always varies depending on the individual’s needs and the availability of respite care beds. At Penrose Court Care Home, a minimum length of stay of 3 weeks does apply to allow residents to feel settled and get the most out of our support – for further information please do get in contact with our team.
