More information about Respite Care Homes

What is respite care?

Respite care is a short-term, temporary stay in a care home, designed to support both the caregiver and the person you are caring for.

Often lasting one to two weeks, a respite care home will support your loved one in a home-from-home setting and take care of all their personal needs. Sometimes you may need emergency respite care, for example if your loved one needs to recover after an illness or fall and requires 24-hour support.

If you're looking for a longer-term care option, we have different types of homes across the UK:

Cost of respite care

As a general guide, the average cost of respite care in the UK is between £700-£800 each week. The cost of respite care is unique for everyone, as it will depend on the length of stay in a respite care home and the type of support your loved one will need.

Respite care facilities

All our respite care homes offer personalised care, tailored to the individual's needs. Every resident in a respite care home will have a care plan that covers their personal care needs, interests, and daily routines. For instance, they will receive support with mobility, mealtimes and medication administration if needed.

During their stay, your loved one will have their own furnished room and take part in a range of daily activities to support their health and wellbeing.

Frequently Asked Questions about Respite Care Homes

What is respite care for the elderly?

Caring for an elderly loved one can be rewarding, but it can also be challenging. Respite care for the elderly is a temporary form of care that allows carers to take a break, often in a care home setting. As your elderly loved one gets older, you may choose respite care as a trial period for permanent residential care, or to provide support after an illness or operation.

How long can you have respite care for?

A typical stay in a respite care home is often around one to two weeks, however there is no set amount of time. Your stay will depend on any personal care needs and the support required.

If you have any questions about our respite care homes, our care experts are here to help. Get in touch today.

Who pays for respite care?

How you pay for respite care will depend on the type of support you need and your personal circumstances. Sometimes, your local council will pay for a temporary stay in a respite care home once they have carried out an assessment. Alternatively, if you don’t qualify for help from your local council, you may have to pay for care yourself – also known as self-funding.

How much is respite care per day?

The daily cost of care will depend on a few factors, including the care home fees and any additional respite support your loved one may need during their stay. However, as a general guide, the cost of respite care per day is around £70.
