Respite Care

Respite Care

Respite care provides short-term accommodation for the person who needs care, giving their carer the opportunity to take a break or go on holiday, while still ensuring that their loved one is being looked after in a safe and comfortable environment.

The duration of respite care can vary from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the needs of the carer and the person who requires care.

During the respite care period, Albert House staff will provide assistance with daily tasks such as bathing, dressing, and medication management, as well as providing meals and social activities to keep the resident engaged and entertained.


Respite care can be arranged privately or through the local authority. The cost of respite care varies depending on the person’s individual needs and the duration of the stay.

Our respite care ensures we can cover all the usual care that might be provided by the main carer. This can include personal care, medication management, meals, housekeeping or specialist care. If you are unsure if respite care is suitable for a loved one, please get in touch with the Albert House team to discuss your needs. We have supported many people to take a break through our respite care option.
