We are happy to offer short stay (respite) care
We can offer residents a temporary stay (respite) for perhaps a week or two providing a good opportunity for a break for both the carer and the cared for. It can help to cover periods of time when a carer is unavailable such as holidays or simply provide a change of scenery.
Everyone deserves a break and respite or short stay care can give you exactly that.Florence House provides a safe, comfortable and homely environment with the reassurance of 24-hour expert care being available.
If you are taking care of somebody, it's important to remember to care for yourself too. It’s easy to allow your own health and well-being to be compromised when your focus is on looking after someone else. Giving yourself a well-earned break could be a good way of recharging your batteries.
If you are the one in need of permanent care, taking a break from your usual routine and carer can really make a difference. Or if you live independently, short stay care could give you the temporary help you need whilst recovering from an illness or operation, until you feel well enough to return home.
