Respite care

Need too take a longer break from caring but can't see how?

Caring for your elderly loved one can be hard work and often ties you to home almost all day every day. Even if you can get away for short periods or are supporting your loved one but not living with them, getting the opportunity to take a longer term break can be very difficult.

You could engage the services of a home care company, though they can't be there 24 hours a day and there's always the risk that something will happen while you're not there. And anyway, it's not ideal having strangers coming into the house especially if you're loved one is vulnerable.

If you're facing this problem where you'd like to take a longer break but can't see how we'd like to offer you the ideal solution.

Wouldn't it be great if you could trust someone else to look after your loved one with the same loving care that you do? Then you'd be free to take as much time away as you need secure in the knowledge that they're completely safe and being well looked after.

We'll that's exactly what you'll find with our respite care service. Your loved one can spend anything from a single day to several weeks with us at The Laurels. It's perfect if you need to take a short trip for a few days or want to go on holiday for a week or two.
