Respite Care

We proudly offer unrivalled levels of Respite Care in purpose-built accommodation here at The Ashton Care Home. Respite Care is an opportunity to rest and recharge with our excellent team, no matter how long you remain with us.

Our Respite Care allows residents the opportunity to rest and recover and also allows family members and caregivers to unwind. Our knowledgeable and caring staff are highly trained to recognise and respond to a wide range of health issues, allowing them to provide individualised care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is a short-term care alternative that offers both scheduled and unscheduled breaks from a primary caregiver. Whether it’s to help a loved one with additional nursing requirements after a stay in hospital to help them back on their feet, or to get a break to recharge, get some medical treatment for yourself or to just some time out, we’ve created a respite package to allow you to take the time, knowing that your loved-one is in safe, caring hands.

Our Approach to Respite Care

Our home is a place where residents can live safely and pleasantly, with care tailored to their individual requirements. We take a holistic approach to care that considers the health, well-being, and interests of all of our residents, an attitude that is shared by all members of staff. Our home was designed to give inhabitants the most convenience and accessibility possible, allowing them to feel secure and comfortable while keeping as much freedom as possible.

When is Respite Care Necessary?

Respite care is intended to be a positive experience for residents as well as their caregivers. Caregivers’ health is equally as important as the person they are caring for. If a caregiver is anxious and exhausted, the quality of care they can provide is likely to suffer as a result. Whether you are caring for a loved one or simply need a break, you may rest assured that you will find a secure, welcoming, and supporting environment. We provide respite care for people in need of short-term assistance, with stays ranging from one week to a few months.

Our COVID-19 Approach

In line with recent Government recommendations effective from April 2022, care homes in England no longer have restrictions as to the numbers of visits per resident though we ask that you make arrangements in advance of your visit to ensure safe visiting practices can be maintained. LFT testing is no longer mandatory, though to protect the safety and wellbeing of our residents and teams, we would appreciate your support in continuing to do so. Appropriate guidance for using PPE must be followed whilst visiting.

At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change. For further information, please click here or contact the Home Manager directly.
