What is Respite Care?

Respite care provides an ideal opportunity for caregivers to take a short break and focus on their own wellbeing. Respite care services involve temporarily moving an individual into a care home or nursing home to either give caregivers some time to themselves, or for the care seeker to receive a little extra support following an illness or injury.

Typically, caregivers are friends or family members and they can face various challenges and stresses in their role. Family members and caregivers can dedicate time to their own health and wellness when moving a loved one into respite care on a short term basis. Respite care allows families to have reassurance as they know that their loved one receiving respite care will be well taken care of. This arrangement also brings peace of mind to caregivers, allowing them to recharge and rejuvenate whilst their loved one continues to receive high-quality care.

Additionally, respite care is a care service that can be extremely beneficial for individuals who have recently been hospitalised or are recovering from an illness or injury. Many care homes and nursing homes offer continuous support and care during an individual recovery process, providing 24/7 assistance and access to various facilities. This is particularly valuable for those who cannot fully care for themselves at home, as they can receive the necessary support and attention they need to get them back on their feet.

Respite care in a care home or nursing home is a great solution for both full-time carers seeking a temporary break and for individuals who need a short stay and additional support whilst in recovery.

Respite Care at Oakdene Care Home

Oakdene Care Home provides high-quality respite care in Dorset, and this service starts from one week but is typically used from a few weeks to several months. Residents living with us for respite stays can expect to receive a fully person-centred approach to care with a tailored care plan just like our permanent residents. Before moving into our care home, we will conduct a pre-admission assessment with our home manager or senior member of care staff to ensure that we can cater to our resident’s specific needs successfully, delivered by our trained staff members.

People also look into respite care because they are unsure if a care home is right for them or their family members. We understand how difficult it is to decide to move into a care home or nursing home, which is why we offer prospective residents the opportunity to use our respite service for a short period as a trial. This allows people to experience life at our care home in Dorset firsthand, helping them make the correct decision for themselves. Our care home offers a warm, comforting, and supportive environment, and we take pride in offering our respite service to support caregivers with a well-deserved break and help provide respite residents with the relaxation and recovery time that they require. We encourage everyone within our care home to live independently and make our home their own home.
