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 stays are common in the care industry and at Birtley House they 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 to the care received by someone who is a long-term resident and all the options for enjoying life and the use of the facilities are the same. 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 period of time in hospital, or simply enjoy a taster of life at Birtley for a week.
