A respite or short-term stay may be needed for a period of recovery after an operation, accident or illness, or because the person’s usual carer is on holiday or a short break.
Respite stays, by their short-term nature, can perhaps be a little daunting at first for both the resident coming to stay and their loved ones. At OSJCT, we know this, so we make every effort to make our respite residents feel welcome, happy and valued. It is not unusual for short stays to be repeated, and often our respite residents decide to stay for the longer term once they have experienced life with us here at OSJCT.
As a relative, friend or carer, you can relax knowing that your loved one or friend is in a safe, comfortable and friendly environment where they will receive high-quality care that respects their privacy and dignity.
