Respite Care

Our short-term respite care is provided to people when their caregiver needs a break from their responsibilities, but they still need somebody to provide care to them. This allows the older individual to still receive the care they need without the carer becoming run down or exhausted. Respite care is also appropriate for a trial period to see if Derwent Lodge is the right care home for you, before you move in long term.
