Respite Care

Whether you are caring for a loved one or simply need a break for yourself, you can unwind at Rubislaw Park, knowing that you will get a warm and friendly welcome.

Respite care is perfect for individuals who need to recover after an illness or a hospital stay. Many people also arrange for a trial stay to check if the home is the right fit for them as their new place of residence.

Whether you would prefer to have respite care for a few days, a few weeks or indefinitely, residential care facilities provide care 24 hours a day, seven days a week throughout your stay.

What is Respite Care?

Respite care is intended to provide the primary caregiver a little break by moving the person being cared for into a care home for a brief period of time. This form of care is especially beneficial when friends or family members have taken on the role of carer, as it allows them to put more of focus on their own health and wellbeing for the time being. 

Caregivers may need respite care, depending on the capabilities of their loved one. It allows them to rest, recoup, and attend to any other family obligations they may have. Caring for someone else is a demanding job, and if you’re starting to run low on energy, you won’t be able to continue giving quality care for your loved one. That makes respite care essential to providing both our residents and their loved ones with a well deserved break.

Our Approach to Respite Care

Caring for a loved one while keeping your own regular lifestyle is tremendously challenging, no matter how fulfilling it might be. We recognise that accepting personal care from others can be a difficult decision for anyone. For a carer, the decision can feel like a loss of freedom, and it can be daunting and disheartening. We ensure that every one of our residents has a lovely time at Rubislaw Park, and we are dedicated to providing the care and support you require to get back on your feet.

What is Respite Care like at Rubislaw Park?

Our Respite care can be tailored to fit your individual lifestyle and care plan, with special attention given to each individual need. We are constantly developing new tactics to provide our residents and their loved ones with the best possible care and would be more than happy to discuss any requirements you might have.

If any of our prospective residents aren’t entirely sure about making the move, that’s completely valid and understandable. However, many people arrange for a short-term trial stay with us at Rubislaw Park, just to get a feel for the life they might eventually be leading if they do choose to take that leap. Rubislaw Park is a wonderful residential care facility where everyone can stay in a safe, supervised setting that is tailored to their individual needs.
