Making the decision to stay with us, no matter how long the stay, should mark the beginning of a new and exciting chapter, one that allows residents to feel confident and happy while retaining as much independence as possible.

Our team is fully trained to understand and deal with a variety of health needs, and we take pride in providing the highest levels of care and respect for every resident.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is a short-term care option, providing both planned and unplanned respite breaks from a usual care giver. Whether individuals have experienced a fall, are recovering from an illness or the primary caregiver is looking to have a short break, Haddington Care Home is on hand to help relieve pressure or worry. All residents staying with us, no matter their length of stay, receive only the highest-quality Respite Care until they feel more like themselves again.

Comprehensive Respite Care 

We regard our home as a ‘home for life’ and are confident and comfortable in tailoring the provision of care according to each resident’s need, including Respite Care. Our approach to care goes beyond meeting care needs, we care for the health, wellbeing and interests of our residents as a whole; an entirely comprehensive approach that is adopted by all staff members. Our home has been designed to offer residents the highest level of comfort and comfortable and accessible home feeling where residents feel confident and happy while retaining as much independence as possible. We work hard to deliver comprehensive care, while maximising the potential of each resident enabling them to lead a fulfilling and comfortable life.

When is Respite Care Suitable?

Respite Care provides short-term relief for primary caregivers. We know from experience that caring for someone who is sick, elderly or has a physical disability is a challenging duty that no one can achieve alone. Respite Care is available to allow caregivers time away from administering care and taking over the responsibility of fulfilling the needs of the individual receiving care. As a caregiver, accepting Respite Care can be difficult, but this type of care is designed to provide you with the much-needed relief you may need.
