Respite Care

Temporary support can be a live-saver to carers looking after their loved ones. We are here to support unpaid carers because we understand that everyone needs a break from time to time.

Respite Care

Short-term support to give you (or a carer) some much needed respite.

 A break for a carer can be important for their physical and mental health, at the same time knowing that their loved ones are being taken care of. 

It can also provide new social interactions for the person living with dementia, as well as pursue new pastimes and forge new relationships.

Respite care typically covers two or more weeks, depending on each individual’s circumstances and requirements.  We tailor care to individual needs whether it is a respite stay or permanent stay.

Cedars Nursing Home and Castle Hill House have now merged all their services, based out of one building at The Cedars in Angel Lane, Shaftesbury. We still provide residential and dementia nursing to all our residents.
