Respite Care

Templeton House Care Home greets you with open arms, no matter what you’ve been through recently. Templeton House prides itself on making residents feel at ease from the moment you step through our doors.

Templeton House is the ideal place to relax and be looked after. We’re confident that after a short stay with us, you’ll be back to your fabulous self in no time. Staying with us for a short time, whether you’ve fallen or had a recent illness, provides you with the opportunity to fully recover. It also allows family members and caregivers to unwind without having to worry about their loved ones’ well-being.

What is Respite Care?

Respite care is a form of short-term care provided to those who have just had a fall or are recovering from an illness and require a place to stay while they recuperate. Individuals who are full-time caregivers for a family member and need a break from caring can benefit significantly from respite care. At Templeton House Care Home, each of our visitors will receive the highest-quality respite care until they feel more like themselves again. Regardless of how long a person stays with us, they are guaranteed a pleasant time.

Our Approach to Respite Care

We recognise that everyone requires a break from time to time. Anyone who needs additional support for a short period of time, whether for a few weeks or longer, will benefit from our respite care package. Respite care can be useful during the winter months, to help recuperate from an operation or sickness. Respite care at Templeton House Care Home will be tailored to your schedule and current care needs, with careful attention given to each need. Our team is committed to providing the best person-centred care to each and every one of our residents, regardless of their reason for visiting our home.

Respite Care at Templeton House Care Home

At Templeton House Care Home, we are happy to be able to provide the highest level of care to all of our residents. We collaborate with each resident and their family to develop a customised care plan that is suited to their individual needs and lifestyle, allowing them to receive as much or as little assistance as is required. We recognise that each person who stays with us is unique, therefore it brings us great pleasure for us to be able to tailor a care plan just for them.

Is Respite Care Suitable For Your Needs?

Caring for someone who is sick, elderly or has a physical disability is a challenging duty that no one can achieve on their own. As a caregiver, accepting respite care can be difficult, but respite care is designed to provide you with the much-needed relief you’ve been wishing for. The highly qualified team at Templeton House can assist current and future residents, as well as their family and friends, in determining the best course of action for all parties involved.

Delivering Unrivalled Care in Challenging Times
