Respite/ Short Term Care

Respite & Short Term Care in Devon


Many people are successfully supported at home and often with complex needs. However, sometimes 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 respite care and short term care services in Devon to complement home care. We also offer a supportive environment for one, two or more weeks to meet specific objectives and support ongoing independent living.

Circumstances where respite and short term care may be needed 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 is put into place to ensure that these are met. Residents are able to 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.
