Friary Care keeps a room in each of its Weymouth residential care homes for people who would benefit from a short stay. This can be for people who need a little extra support whilst recovering from an illness or operation and can be for one week or a few months. Short stay care can also be arranged to give the carer of someone who is unable to look after them-selves a well-earned rest.
A short stay can provide:
- care while you recover from an illness or a stay in hospital
- support if you are newly disabled
- a break (respite care) for you and, or, your carer
- a break if you live alone to allow you to continue to live independently
- an opportunity to get to know a particular care home that suits your needs if you are thinking about permanent care
We also cater for respite care breaks, which are an opportunity for carers to take a holiday or simply spend some time looking after their own needs, safe in the knowledge that their loved one is receiving the very best care.
We tailor our respite stays to each person’s individual needs and our care teams have expertise in supporting older people who have Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia or restricted mobility. Respite care can last for just a few days or as long as is needed.
A warm welcome awaits
Whatever the reason we want our short-term residents to enjoy a wide variety of recreation and leisure pursuits, and to indulge themselves in our delicious and nutritionally balanced home cooked meals prepared in-house by our resident chefs. It is an opportunity to enjoy a change of scenery, meet new friends and we guarantee a very warm welcome by our friendly and reliable staff.
Many short stay residents, having first sampled home life through a short period of care with Friary Care, do in fact decide to stay with us on a more permanent basis. It is a great way to sample the standard of care we offer!
Our inclusive approach is applied to all our residents no matter how short their stay is and we aim to ensure that you can maintain their independence and freedom of choice, whilst providing you with the security of around-the-clock support to ensure optimum peace of mind.
Your personal care plan for a short stay
If you would like to take advantage of a short stay, then we’ll arrange a meeting with you to assess your individual care needs and understand your personal wants and wishes. We’ll then provide a care plan that details the support we’ll give during their stay with us, this is your plan and you can change it whenever you wish.
