Here at Shaw healthcare, we pride ourselves on being able to offer a wide range of healthcare and supporting services across England and Wales.
We are fully committed to providing a continuous level of high standard of care to our customers, which also includes those who provide care for others.
Our respite care services are available for elderly individuals who are physically frail and those who also have dementia in our residential and nursing care homes. Respite care meets the needs of the carer and is primarily for their benefit. It allows the carer to take a well deserved break from their usual day to day routine, which would usually consist of numerous care and attentive responsibilities. Our respite care services also allow the carer to tend to other responsibilities that just sometimes aren’t possible to complete when providing care.
If you’re taking care of an individual who is firmly dependent, whether they’re a family or friend, everyone still deserves and requires a break from time to time. Taking regular breaks from your usual care responsibilities allows you to refresh physically, mentally and emotionally, although many people believe that taking or needing a break is a sign of weakness. This is completely false. We understand that providing care can be strenuous from time to time, however if you continue to work hard without taking the appropriate breaks, the care that’s being provided may begin to suffer. Our respite care services enable you to administer the standard of care you originally aim to provide.
Our respite care services aren’t just primarily aimed at carers, we recommend respite care services to those who require care themselves, whether this be recovering from an illness or treatment, or you may just simply want to see what life is like in a modern day care home.
Shaw healthcare has grown and developed significantly over the years, we are now one of the largest healthcare providers in the UK. This means you can expect our respite care services to be of high standard. We offer top quality accommodation, a varied menu and comfortable lounge and dining rooms complete with a range of activities. Whether all you need is a single night or up to six weeks of respite care, we offer a variety of respite breaks to accommodate all needs. We also provide respite care in your own home in some locations. Trained carers provide the care that’s normally provided in your own home.
