St. David's has constructed a new dedicated room for Respite Care. The room has huge windows and double glass doors that lead directly out to our spacious backgardens. The room has an ensuite bathroom and shower. The views of the garden and bird feeder can be enjoyed while lying in bed, sitting in the armchair or while dining on the patio. There's also the opportunity to enjoy all the activites that are available on the North Norfolk Coast.
Respite Care enables a carer to take a planned break or holiday. A respite break in a sea-side location, like Sheringham, also provides the cared-for person with a break from their routine and an opportunity to enjoy different surroundings and activities. Everyone has peace of mind knowing that their stay is in a properly equipped environment that has 24 hour nursing care available.
Respite Care also applies to people who may not have a carer, but who need a break from their home circumstances.
We aim to provide a flexible service to suit the needs of each person. If you are being cared for in your home because of illness, disability or frailty, your Social Services Department may be able to offer respite care services to support your carer to continue their caring role. Some people requesting respite care are local and some are not.
You do not need to be based locally to book respite care at St. David's.
Please call us now on 01263 822 671 to check on whether respite care is available for your holiday dates.
