Respite Care

At B&M Care Homes, our respite packages are specifically designed to support the unique needs of the individual. With person-centred care plans for each short-stay resident, our respite care homes offer the same level of assurance and exemplary care standards enjoyed by our long-term residents. We offer both tailored residential care and specialist dementia care, for periods lasting from 2 weeks.

Short-Term Support for Carers

Our respite care homes provide support for carers through short-term stays in residential care. We offer either regular residential respite care or specialist dementia care, depending on the needs of the individual.

People’s reasons for seeking respite care are many and varied. It can be a suitable option for individuals seeking support following post-operative or hospital care, or whilst their regular caregiver takes a break.

With stays ranging from 2 weeks, our respite care services are flexible and will fit around your needs. Many of our short-term residents return to us on a recurring basis, offering regular respite for caregivers.

Meaningful Activity and Social Contact

At B&M Care we offer a seven-day-a-week schedule in all our respite care homes. We ensure that all activities are meaningful and creative; they are often educational, too.

Delivered in both a one-to-one and larger group setting, the way we engage with our residents is unique to them – it’s reflective of their likes and dislikes, as well as their social and cultural interests.

Engagement & Wellbeing at B&M Carechevron_right

Typical respite care engagement includes:

  • Art and craft classes
  • Music therapy workshops
  • Pet therapy visits
  • Reminiscence projects

Each activity promotes active socialisation, whilst encouraging individuals to pursue a new hobby or something of interest.

As a result of our commitment to delivering meaningful occupation, individuals enjoying a break in our respite care homes have often made lasting friendships with both staff and other residents. Many individuals have returned on a recurring short-stay basis, where others have instilled friendship across distance through regular calls and pen pal initiatives.
