Heritage Lifecare Respite services provide carers with a much needed short-term break. It is different from our Day Programme service as it allows guests to stay under our care for more than a day and up to a couple of weeks.
Our Respite Care can be a planned break, scheduled in advance, or we can offer emergency Respite Care when it’s needed. We understand all the responsibilities carers face on a daily basis, which is why it’s important to take a break sometimes. Our guests can enjoy a wide range of daily activities and companionship throughout the term of Respite.
For more information, check out this article on how to give yourself a break if you are a carer and also what to expect with Respite Care. Find Respite Care options closest to you.
Our people make us who we are. With everyone’s different backgrounds and stories, they all come together to make the best version of Heritage Lifecare.
Activities stimulate their minds and their thoughts. It makes them use their brain. A lot of the people here love all the mind challenges
I do enjoy working with the elderly and that’s why I stayed, I’m a stayer. I like all the different characters here.
We’re here to make a better life for our residents. They’ve worked hard and they deserve respect and dignity, and that’s what they’re going to get here
Levels of care
Rest Home Care
If you or a loved one have a medical condition or are less able to lead an independent life, our Rest Home living offers dedicated 24/7 care from our team of registered nurses and trained carers.
If you or a loved one suffer from significant disabilities or medical conditions, particularly where the loss of cognitive abilities is a recognised factor, our Hospital Care could be just what you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for Dementia Care, our focus is to alleviate any stress and uncertainty from the moment you and your loved one steps in our door.
If you or your loved one would enjoy some company and activities now and again, many of our Rest Homes invite locals who may be considering a Rest Home to come and enjoy our Day Programme.
Specialised Hospital Care
At some of our locations, we have a higher level of care for people with dementia or enduring mental health problems, who also have a higher level of behaviours of concern.
When the time comes that Palliative Care is required, you can be rest assured that Heritage Lifecare will go above and beyond to provide the caring and sympathetic Palliative Care needed by people who are reaching the end of their lives.
