Respite & Recuperation...

At Birtley House we welcome residents who need a place for respite care, recuperation and rehabilitation, from as little as 7 nights. Our varied accommodation and support packages can be tailored to your specific requirements.

Respite care provides that temporary care measure for the elderly in situations where their carers are not available. It is often part of the process where an individual may be recovering from an illness, accident or surgery and when regular carers need that additional and specialised support network in place.Respite stays are common in the care industry and at Birtley House, regardless of the situation, our friendly and supportive team are here to help. Our stays can range from as little as one week (7 nights), to sometimes several months, and our varied accommodation and support packages can be tailored to your specific requirements.Respite care is no different from the care received by someone who is a long-term resident with all the options for enjoying life and the use of the facilities here at our nursing home. It is just the length of stay that is different, and of course, someone who chooses to live at Birtley for the long-term has the option to purchase a home with one of our apartments which also help to reduce the costs of long-term care.The option to stay for as little as one week allows people the opportunity to have a break and feel support around them if they are feeling a little tired in life, looking to recover from a fall, illness or a period of time in hospital, or simply enjoy a taster of life at Birtley care home for a week.
