What Type of Stay are You Looking for?
Our care homes offer different types of stay. Whether a loved one chooses to live independently in their own home and join us for the day, requires a short stay to support them for a period of respite or convalescence to get back on their feet or opts for longer-term residency and a place to call home, we are likely to be able to provide the right solution.
Live Independently: Come for the Day
Many of our Residents have always stood on their own two feet, but remaining independent for as long as possible means they may need a helping hand now and again.
Our Live Independently service provides support to older people who are still living at home, but who may need practical support and personal care during the day. It is also available to those who might feel alone and isolated at home. The benefits of day care include companionship, exercise, practical help and access to a wide range of hobbies to try. The aim of our Live Independently service is to help people remain as independent as possible, for as long as possible.
Back on Your Feet: Convalesce With Us
Sometimes, when older people become ill, it would be wonderful to think that a kind person could step in to take care of them. Not forever, just until they are well again. That’s what we offer. Our Back on Your Feet stays are aimed at supporting older people to recuperate and recover postoperation or following a period of illness with a view to helping them to return home and live independently once again.
A Back on Your Feet break is fully inclusive. With nothing else to worry about, it’s possible to focus on getting their strength back. Sometimes that’s all it takes – a couple of weeks to build up their strength while we look after them.
A Little Break: A Shorter Stay
Our Little Break stays are designed for older people who would benefit from spending a week or two in a homely environment where they can feel safe in the knowledge that care is on hand 24-hours a day.
This is perfect for those who are usually looked after by their families, but who cannot join them when they go away on holiday or for business. It’s also a good choice when the house is being disrupted by builders, or as a way of trying out a home before making the decision to live there longer term.
Home from Home: A Longer Stay
Many older people move into a care home for a longer-term residency and a place to call home. When people choose to live with us permanently they often bring with them treasured possessions and small items of furniture to help them feel more at home.
Sometimes people might be on Continuing Healthcare that is arranged and funded by the NHS. Being surrounded by cherished items as well as kind friendly faces helps them to settle in and feel safe and happy. We take stress and day-to-day hassle away so that our Residents can focus on the simple things that matter.
Return Home Safely: After A Stay in Hospital
Our Return Home Safely stays are usually offered to people who have spent a while in hospital following an illness or a serious fall. They are not ready to go home quite yet as good quality nursing care is still needed. This stop-gap option delivers the care that is needed but in the comfortable and less regimented environment of a care home rather than a hospital. It usually lasts for four to six weeks, allowing older people to return to their own home fully recovered and able to live independently once more.
