Respite Care

We are proud to offer unrivalled Respite Care to individuals looking for a short-term care option. We take great pleasure in making residents feel comfortable and safe here; whether looking for somewhere to rest and recover yourself or if you’re a carer for a relative or a loved one looking to take take a break from the day to day responsibility caring for someone involves, there really is no better place to do so than in our beautiful home in Mowbray.

Staying with us for even a short while provides the time and space required to fully recover. Whether recovering from a fall, having suffered a more serious injury or a carer looking for a short break; whatever the reasons for staying with us here at The Amwell Care Home and for however long, you can count on calling it home.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is designed to provide home carers the opportunity to take a break from daily duties and responsibility of supporting an individual who required round-the-clock care,  recovering from an injury or illness or needs support at particular times throughout the day. The Amwell Care Home also recommends Respite Care to anyone who needs help getting back on their feet, or needs a short-term solution to caring for a loved one. We provide high-quality Respite Care to each and every one of our guests until they feel like themselves again, no matter how long they stay with us. 

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, everyone who resides here at The Amwell Care Home will receive the person-centred, unrivalled care we are proudly known for.

Ensuring Expert Respite Care, Always

Individuals who require short-term care, whether for a few weeks or a few months, will benefit greatly from our Respite Care package. Previous residents have stayed with us around the holidays, or when they needed support when recovering from an operation or sickness or during times when the carer could benefit from some personal time. Whatever the reason, The Amwell Care Home is ready to deliver exceptional care, for however long required.

Respite Care is tailored to fit the schedule and current care plan the individual is already receiving. We are committed to each and every one of our residents and their friends and family, in ensuring everyone receives the very best support, and receives the care they both need and deserve.

All residents at The Amwell Care Home can enjoy spending time with likeminded people who enjoy a varied and active lifestyle.
