Finding the best respite care for your loved one doesn't need to be stressful. Guild Care has years of experience in providing top-quality respite care for the elderly, many of whom have preferred coming to us instead of a holiday.

Our three care homes are equipped to deal with a variety of needs, including nursing care, respite for dementia carers, and providing such care in short-notice and emergency situations.

We also offer convalescence. If you’re not sure what the difference is, we have explained below as well as in more depth in this article: ‘What is the difference between respite and convalescent care in a care home?’.

If you want to speak to someone directly about our Respite Service, please call our friendly Customer Service Team on 01903 327327 (8.30am - 4pm, Mon - Fri).

Respite care is about you and your loved one

We know that being a full-time carer can be an isolating experience and that asking for help is hard. Everyone needs a break, but even more so when there’s the added pressure of caring for a loved one.

Respite care allows you to take a break whilst safe in the knowledge that your loved one is receiving the support and respect that they deserve.

Our nursing homes are fully equipped to make their short-term stay with us feel truly special. With 24-hour professional care (including dementia care), beautiful purpose-built environments and homecooked meals, they’ll be sure to feel right at home.

Convalescence is about you

It can also be difficult to look after yourself following an operation, injury or illness.

Convalescent care, otherwise known as rehabilitation care, allows you to be looked after whilst you recover.

We’re certain that our friendly and professional staff will make you feel right at home during your stay. Additionally, the presence of our dedicated on-site nurses will allow you to relax safe in the knowledge that any medical issues are being monitored and can be dealt with.

How we can help

In situations like these, we can provide the support that you or your loved ones need. Each of our three care homes are fully equipped to provide respite care and convalescence. 

You can book with us up to a year in advance and discounts apply for multiple bookings. 

These are anxious times for everyone and making the decision to put a loved one into a care home, even for a short-term stay, can be difficult. However, we are safely accepting new admissions. We can provide safe admissions and outdoor visits due to our plentiful stock of PPE, continuous risk assessments, and the hard work of our incredible kind-hearted, professional care staff. 

If you want to speak someone directly about our Respite Service, please call our friendly Customer Service Team on 01903 327327 (8.30am - 4pm, Mon - Fri).
