Short care service

Short stay services

Our short stay services help you take a break and plan activities such as a holiday, with the knowledge and reassurance that the person in your care will be looked after. We offer short stay services from a few days to several weeks. It is very important to us that everyone feels at home during their stay with us and our team takes the time to understand your loved one's needs and likes.

Making a booking

It is best to plan and book short stay services as far in advance as possible, to allow us to ensure we have a space available for the person in your care.  

Involving your doctor

The person in your care will need to have seen their doctor within the past three months, as their own doctor will continue to care for them during their stay with us. You will need to be aware of the following: 

  • Please ensure a medication list has been supplied by their doctor.
  • For any acute or after hours medical assessments, we may need to contact one of our on-call doctors if their own doctor is not available.
  • Our team will give the person in your care their medication at the usual times.
  • If they wish to manage their own medication, the person in your care will need a note from their doctor confirming they are able to do this. 

Your day, your way

When the person in your care comes to stay with us, we will use the information supplied to develop a care plan so our team understand the way your loved one prefers to be cared for. Families are welcome to join us in developing this plan. 

Please give us a call to discuss your needs further, we're happy to answer any questions you may have.
