Respite and Day Stay

Respite care is a service for people who wish to stay with us on a short term basis. This can be for people who need a little extra support whilst recovering from an illness or operation and can be for a day, week or a few months. Respite stays can also be arranged to give the carer of someone who is unable to look after them-selves a well-earned rest.

Whatever the reason we want our respite residents to enjoy a wide interesting variety of recreation and leisure pursuits, and to indulge themselves in our delicious and nutritionally balanced home cooked meals prepared in-house by our resident chef, using fresh locally sourced ingredients. This is also good opportunity to meet new friends and we guarantee a very warm welcome by our friendly and reliable staff. Many respite residents, having first sampled home life through a respite period of care, do in fact end up staying permanently. It is a great way to sample the standard of care on offer.

Our inclusive approach at The RedHouse is applied to all our respite residents no matter how long or short their stay is and we aim to ensure that they maintain their independence and freedom of choice whilst providing them with the security of around-the-clock support to ensure optimum peace of mind.


Care is available 24 hours a day seven days a week and directed by highly skilled healthcare professional who hold NVQ Certificates in health care as well as undergoing our own rigorous on-going training programmers.
