Respite Care

Flexible, temporary care when you need it most. We work with you to tailor the care you, or your loved one may need during your stay with us. Every Encore Care Home has been designed to provide residents with a comfortable and relaxing stay whether this is on a short-term basis or as a permanent resident.

Our respite offering is on a home-by-home basis, availability permitting and is from two to six weeks. Our modern, purpose-built care homes have been specifically designed with caregiving in mind and you, or your loved one will receive a personalised care plan during your stay, however long or short.

Respite for carers

We appreciate that full-time carers who look after a family member or friend may need a break, or just need some additional help from time to time. The care we offer our short-term residents is the same high-quality standard as our permanent residents receive. It is good to know that you or loved one will continue to be well looked after during this time.

On the road to recovery

Perhaps you, or your loved one have had an operation, or have been unwell and need to stay somewhere for a few weeks to recover. We can offer you the extra help and care that you need with day-to-day aspects until you are able to return to your own home.

Try living at an Encore Care Home

Perhaps you, or your loved one would like to try living at an Encore Care Home without making a long-term commitment, this is the perfect opportunity to experience life at one of our homes for a few weeks.

Looking for some company

Sometimes it is just nice to have a change of scene and see some friendly faces. There may be certain times during the year, such as Christmas where you would like to be with like-minded people and take part in the activities we put on across our homes.
