Respite care is temporary care, typically in a care facility, for an elderly, ill or handicapped person – providing relief for the person(s) that are their usual residential caregivers. There are a wide range of benefits for both the person receiving care and their primary caregiver – respite care exists to allow the peace of mind that you or a loved one will have the care that you/he/she needs if ever a primary caregiver is not around.
Caring for our residents is our top priority, and we are devoted to ensuring that the last years of their lives are filled with support, comfort and premium care. The Gold Standards Framework allows our staff to receive training in order to provide the coordinated, personalised care that we are known for.
Here at The Hollies, we strive to provide top-level care for all our residents – including different forms of therapy sessions and activities for our residents to enjoy. Recently, we have begun working with World Jungle to bring interactive dance to our facility.
