Woodlands Care Home offers all-inclusive living with 81 professionally designed en-suite bedrooms.

What is Respite Care? 

Many care homes in the UK provide respite care. If you are providing live in care support for your loved one, temporarily relocating a person to a care facility means you can find relief in Respite Care. A caregiving role carried out in a home is frequently filled by a friend or family member, however, the demands of the role can occasionally bring difficulties and tensions. Respite care means that carers can have a moment or two for themselves without having to worry about whether their dependent is in safe hands. With the assurance that the person they are caring for is safe and well looked after, respite care enables carers to spend some time focusing on their own health and well being.

A respite care service may also be helpful for those who have recently been hospitalised, are struggling with coping with an ongoing illness, or are recovering from a serious physical injury. Respite care provides support for older people on a temporary, short-term basis. Our friendly team provides a high level of personal care for older people, and the 24/7 assistance and support means someone can fully recover and resume their usual routines, depending on circumstances. Care homes will offer respite care for different durations of time so it’s wise to get in touch with the care home to find out the minimum length of stay available.

Respite Care In Aberdeen

Respite care can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks or longer in some circumstances. You will always receive a genuinely person-centred service during your stay with us at Woodlands Care Home, regardless of how long it lasts. We do a pre-admission evaluation of every resident’s overall health and well-being to make sure we can effectively satisfy your care needs before you move into our home. In order to provide the greatest care and service to each and every one of our residents, we then give each resident a tailored care plan.

Here at Woodlands Care Home, we understand how difficult it might be to decide whether you or a loved one should move into a care facility. That’s why we want to encourage all potential future residents to come and stay with us, only for a short while, so they know exactly the kind of life they could be living if they choose to live with us on a more permanent basis. Our care home is a welcoming and uplifting place with a residential setting, and we are thrilled to be able to provide respite care in Aberdeen for those who need it most.
