Respite care services at Hamberley

At Hamberley Care Homes, we understand the immense dedication it takes to care for a loved one in the family home or in their own home. We also understand the need for a regular carer to take a much-needed break.

Our respite care service and short breaks are thoughtfully designed to provide temporary care, offering caregivers the flexibility to take a break from caring responsibilities.

Our team of skilled Homemakers (our trained carers), Nurses, and Wellbeing colleagues work hand in hand to provide full support, ensuring the continuity of care and peace of mind for you.

Hamberley's respite care offers older people the opportunity to access specialist nursing care, personal care and all the benefits of the luxury facilities within our homes for a regular break or a one-off stay - your trusted partner for good care and supportive short stay.

Types of respite care available

For those who might need a little extra support following a period of illness or hospital stay, our respite services offer an ideal environment for recovery. These breaks provide the necessary care, attention, and assistance that individuals might need after an illness or operation before returning to their own home.

For those living with or caring for people with dementia, short term care can provide opportunities for the person to access dementia care from specialist care and nursing teams, and enjoy the opportunity to engage in meaningful activities, while allowing time for caregivers to rest.

Whilst respite care is often arranged to cover a planned holiday or event, sometimes, it's not possible to plan ahead when looking to arrange respite care. In case of emergencies, emergency respite care can be arranged at short notice, ensuring that your loved one is well taken care of as soon as possible, even in unexpected situations.

At Hamberley, a respite break usually lasts around four weeks, ensuring short term stays can provide personalised care and support tailored to the individual's needs and requirements.
