Respite Care in Aberdeen
What is Respite Care?
Respite Care is designed to offer those who are caregivers a short break for themselves by moving the person that they care for into a care home for a period of time. Caregivers are often friends or family members who have taken on the role of a carer and the demands of this can sometimes mean that they need a form of respite themselves. This form of care allows caregivers to put a focus on their own health and wellbeing whilst feeling reassured that the person they usually care for is being well looked after.
Those who are in recovery from an illness, injury, or time in hospital may also wish to receive Respite Care to get the continued care and support they need to get back on their feet. This is especially beneficial to those who may not be able to look after themselves at home and instead can make use of the around-the-clock care and facilities a care home offers.
Respite Care at Rubislaw Park
Respite Care can last anywhere between several days and a few weeks, and at Rubislaw Park we offer a tailored approach to all our care types. When moving into our home, no matter for what reason or how long for, we offer a consultation to discuss how we can best meet each resident’s needs, followed by creating a person-centred care and lifestyle plan to ensure each and every requirement is successfully met.
At Rubislaw Park, we understand how difficult of a decision it can be when considering moving into a care home. Many of our prospective residents arrange for Respite Care as a short-term trial to get a better feel for the way we care for our residents and the facilities that we have to offer, before making their final decision. We also offer day care to give those in our local community extra flexible support when it is needed. Rubislaw Park is an exceptional residential care home and our dedicated staff goes above and beyond for each and every one of our residents no matter what.
