We offer a warm welcome to those in need of short-term respite care, giving primary carers a break from their caring role. Respite care can be provided to cover a planned break, regular weekly breaks or short holidays with a programme of respite or one-off plans.
Fairfield helps by providing short-term respite care for as long as is needed, on a basis that suits carers and their loved ones. It gives carers some personal time before returning home, fresh and renewed.
With short-term respite care, Fairfield’s trained care team step in to care for a loved one while carers have a break. It also means that a family can go away, knowing that their relative is being looked after and is in safe hands until they return.
Some people opt to use a short-term respite visit to sample care for the first time and see whether it suits them. It gives a taster of how community life at Fairfield works without making a permanent commitment.
24-hour respite care
We also offer ‘Peace of Mind’ care for just 24 hours, which includes an overnight stay. Our 24-hour respite care is perfect for carers who wish for some time to meet friends or family and enjoy a day and a night to re-charge batteries. The 24-hours can start whenever required with Fairfield taking over the care for that period of time.
A regular period of 24-hour care each week or month can help people to remain in their own home for longer by giving carers a regular overnight break. It also enables those being cared for to enjoy many of the services offered at Fairfield including podiatry, hairdressing and even to use one of our assisted baths.
