Respite/ short term Care
Many people are successfully supported at home, often with complex needs. However, for a variety of reasons, times can arise when these arrangements need supplementing with a short-term period of 24/7 care and support within a nursing home.
Southern Healthcare provides a range of service to complement home care by offering a supportive environment for one, two or more weeks to meet specific objectives and ultimately to support ongoing independent living.
Occasions when this may arise might include the unexpected onset of illness, or situations that Home care arrangements are unable to support. Sometimes, it is essential to give carers at home a break from what can be a very full time caring role, or if other circumstances arise for either a resident or family carer.
Residents needs, preferences and objectives are assessed, and a plan put into place to ensure that these are met. Residents are able to freely choose whether they wish to be involved in the day – to -day activities within the homes.
Everyone is warmly welcomed into the Home and will be well looked after by a kind, understanding, and skilled caring team who will make their stay a heartfelt and successful one.
