Respite Care

Oakdene Care Home is delighted to provide unrivalled levels of Respite Care in Dorset, alongside a range of other care services for older people including Residential Care and Dementia Care.

Whether you choose to stay with us for a short period or are just trialing our home before committing to a more permanent basis, our Respite Care allows you or a loved one to relax and recuperate in the capable hands of our exceptional care team.

It also provides family members and caregivers the opportunity to relax and take time for themselves whilst knowing their loved one is being well-cared for. Our kind and experienced staff are well-versed in recognising and responding to a wide range of health conditions, allowing them to deliver individualised care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is a short-term care solution used for many different reasons. Someone may be seeking respite following an illness or operation and will use their short stay in a care home to relax and get back on their feet. Some people also use respite services to trial care homes and experience what they offer before committing to moving in permanently.

Respite stays can also be utilised by primary caregivers and full time carers who need to take an unscheduled break or time to themselves. Carers can do this whilst knowing that their loved one is in safe, caring hands. Whether it’s used as additional support after a stay in hospital or to provide someone with the time to recharge, our respite package allows people to take the time they need and deserve.
