Pelham House Care Home offers respite care as well as permanent care. Respite care can be for as little as a few days or for up to four weeks, depending on individual needs. Those using respite care may need a little more support following a hospital admission, or perhaps their partner or carer has a holiday. Or they may need a break from caring or would like a holiday themselves.
Pelham House works closely with its sister company, Aspire Homecarers, whereby residents return home from respite care still needing some support at home. Others from the community may need extra support from respite care, which can sometimes lead to a permanent placement.
Respite care can also be for a trial period to experience the Care Home environment before committing to longer term care.
