Respite Care

White House Care Home takes great pride in ensuring all of our residents feel comfortable, safe and happy, no matter their length of stay.

Our Respite Care is available to support residents on a short-term basis, and relieve a caregiver of the day-to-day duties and responsibilities that being a primary carer comes with. No matter the reason for requiring Respite Care, White House Care Home provides comprehensive care that can cover a wide variety of medical and wellbeing needs.

Defining Respite Care

Typically lasting from weeks to months, Respite Care is a short-term care option from a carer who is different from your usual caregiver. Respite Care breaks can be both planned or unplanned depending on circumstances. Whether residents have experienced a fall, recovering from an illness or a caregiver is looking to have a short break, Respite Care is designed to relieve that pressure or worry and step in as a temporary care provider. Respite Care can also be used as a way to experience life in a care home, before making a decision to permanently move into a home.
