Respite care is temporary care offered to older people when their regular carer is unavailable or needs additional support. Whether your loved one is recovering from surgery, an illness or an accident, or if you need a break to refresh and recharge, a short stay in a Gracewell care home could be the solution. We can work with you to tailor the requirements of the stay - whether it's an urgent request, a visit you'd like to plan, or a trial run to see how your loved one does.
At Gracewell, you will find the encouragement and support your loved one needs to lead as complete and fulfilling a life as possible. Our skilled and fully qualified nurses are committed to maintaining the health and wellbeing of each resident.
We focus on understanding each resident to provide person-centred care, comfort and security in a familiar and enabling environment. Our homes have specially designed features to provide security and a sense of belonging for our residents living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Sensory-themed and interactive gardens enable residents to enjoy natural light and fresh air outside. Our communal spaces have been organised in a way that allows people to socialise in smaller numbers, which can instil confidence and contribute to a sense of wellbeing.
Residential care is suited to older adults who need some assistance with daily activities, but don't require intensive nursing care. We treat each and every resident as an individual. Whether you need support or not, the Gracewell care team are committed to helping residents and family members by providing comfort, security, life enrichment and care within a safe, vibrant and uplifting environment.
Independent living at Gracewell offers the best of both worlds - a comfortable home with all the modern conveniences where residents can retain their independence and a secure environment. Independent living allows residents to stay in control of their life while benefiting from the security of knowing qualified staff are on-hand 24/7 should the need arise.
