Respite Care

Kingsacre Care Home warmly welcomes you, no matter what challenges you have recently faced. We are so extremely proud of the relaxing atmosphere we have created in our home, and with thanks to our peaceful and tranquil surroundings, we are able to offer outstanding levels of Respite Care to aid in your or your loved ones recuperation.

Whether you’re someone who personally needs to rest and recover after a stint in hospital, or if you’re a carer for a relative or loved one and just need to take some time for yourself, there really is no better place to do so than in our beautiful home in central Scotland. 

Our Respite Care will have you back on your feet and carrying out your normal routine in no time. We want to assure all of our residents, whether with us permanently or on a temporary basis, that we are dedicated to providing around-the-clock care and daily support, no matter what.

What Does Respite Care Mean?

There are so many reasons as to why someone might turn to a care home for Respite Care. This type of care has many benefits, from giving carers the opportunity to take some personal time, to assisting those who may be recovering from an injury or illness in hospital. We would recommend Respite Care to anyone who needs some helping getting back on their feet, or who need a short-term solution to caring for a loved one.

A short-term stay with us could last for days, weeks or months, and some people even adapt so well to our way of living, that they decide to become a permanent resident. No matter how long you stay with us, you will become a member of the Kingsacre Care Home family from day one, and will receive our high-quality, person-centred Respite Care. During your stay with us, you will be able to socialise and participate in our daily activities, which in itself often helps with the recovery process.

How Can Respite Care Help You?

At Kingsacre Care Home, we know the importance of taking some time out every now and then and really focusing on your health and overall wellbeing. Whether you’re a carer yourself or a visiting resident, our Respite Care is an invaluable solution for those who need short-term care, or just that little extra support on their journey to recovery. 

What’s ideal about Respite Care is that it can be tailored to work around your life and current care plan, with the care we provide also meeting your specific needs. At Kingsacre Care Home, we’re so very committed to ensuring that each and every one of our residents and their guests are receiving the very best services and support, and getting the care they need and deserve.
