UNDERSTANDING RESPITE CARE

A HELPING HAND

Everyone deserves some ‘me’ time. If you are caring for someone and need some time for yourself to recharge your batteries, or you’d like a little extra support yourself following a period of illness, taking a break from your usual routine is essential to help maintain your own general health and wellbeing. 
 
At Stratton Court we provide respite, or short stay care, for those who do not require long term care. Depending on the individual’s needs, a short stay could range from a few days to a few weeks. Our respite residents often return time and again once they have experienced life at Stratton Court. 
Individuals have also chosen to make their Stratton Court their permanent home following their Respite experiences.
 
Respite Care may be suitable for various reasons and can be beneficial whether it has been planned or due to unexpected circumstances.

John S (Resident)

“I came to Statton Court Care Home for a week convalescence after a hospital stay following a cardiac procedure as I now live on alone and felt that I needed support for a few days on discharge. This proved to be very successful as I have an excellent room, nursing care if needed, first-rate food and 
plenty of it and friendly and caring staff available at all times – all within a 5-star environment. Highly recommended.”

“I moved into Stratton Court as a gift from my family as I had experienced some health issues. I was made so welcome by everyone. Nothing was too much trouble. I have never in my life seen such dedicated and loving staff. Everything was fantastic in Stratton Court. My two-week respite made me realise that this is where I belong. So with the help of the dear Manager, I have my own apartment and have made wonderful friends all around me. God bless you all.”

“The care my husband received in this beautiful care home has been outstanding. Every need has been taken care of in an efficient, professional and caring manner by every staff member. The environment, food, decor and cleanliness – all outstanding. My whole family and I could not have found a better place for my dear husband.”

CARING FOR YOUR LOVED ONE

peace of mind

Our approach to respite care is just as meticulous as for our Residential, Dementia and Nursing residents. Prior to arriving at Stratton Court, our Care Home Manager will arrange to meet you in your own home or hospital at your convenience. 
 
Our Care Home Manager will through conversation and discussion assess your needs, get to know your interests, like and dislikes and develop a holistic individualised plan of care that you are involved in. Stratton Court’s fundamental values are to promote and emphasise resident’s respect, independence, privacy and choice. Our person-centred approach to Respite Care allows us to ensure these values are achieved continuously without question. 
 
Stratton Court is located in the heart of the Cotswolds, in the Roman town of Cirencester. Aside from our idyllic location, there are many benefits of living at Stratton Court, namely our luxury facilities, exceptional menus, mini bus trips, activities and entertainment.
