If you are caring for a loved one or a friend, you may need some respite from time to time. A short term stay with Jewish Care is a great way for you both to enjoy a break.

Your loved one can stay in one of our care homes for a temporary period, which is called short stay care (also known as respite care). This can be for any number of reasons, such as helping family carers to have a break from caring. 

Short term stays:

  • typically last 1-3 weeks (the minimum stay is one week)
  • can cover personal, nursing and dementia care
  • are available throughout the year
  • are suitable for anyone whose care needs can be met by the care home and who can adjust to and benefit from a change of environment
  • are subject to room availability within the care home.

Each of our care homes has a warm and friendly atmoshere, a range of activities to enjoy and welcoming staff and residents.
