Respite Care

What is Respite Care?

Respite care is a temporary stay in a care home. Respite care can help you to get back on your feet after you’ve had a spell in hospital or when you’re recovering from an illness. It’s also a good option when the carer goes on holiday or needs a short break.

For carers, respite care provides peace of mind that your loved one is in a safe, comfortable, homely environment so that you can truly enjoy the break you deserve.

Respite Care at Gracewell Healthcare

Respite care also offers the opportunity to try out life in a care home before deciding on a permanent move.


Whatever your reason for a respite break at Gracewell, you’ll receive the same personalised attention and care as if you were a full time resident.

Call your local Gracewell or contact us online to learn more about respite care.
