Short stay Respite Care at Grafton Lodge
Everyone deserves a rest from time to time. Carers can benefit from a break in routine, and so can the person they care for.
If you care for a relative or friend, or if you are in need of care yourself, perhaps now is the time to think about the value of Respite Care?
Recharge your batteries with a short break
Taking a break from your usual routine can do wonders for you.
If you are the person requiring care, you can be sure of a relaxing and enjoyable break and a pleasant change in your routine and surroundings.
A respite stay at Grafton Lodge gives you the opportunity to experience first class service with friendly staff and residents, excellent food, and a range of leisure activities.
If you are a carer, you can relax in the knowledge that your relative or friend is in a safe, welcoming environment with the best care tailored to their needs.
Respite care is also ideal for those who are well enough to leave hospital but not well enough to return home and resume their normal daily routine.
Grafton Lodge is not a nursing home so we cannot assist with complex medical requirements, but for many people leaving hospital we offer exactly the level of 24 hour care and attention they require.
Short breaks and ‘trial runs’
Respite stays are normally short term, from a few days to a few weeks.
It’s also a great opportunity to do a ‘trial run’, and find out what it’s like living in a pleasant care home environment. Should a longer stay ever become necessary in the future you will be familiar with the options and lifestyle available, which will give you considerable reassurance.
