If you look after an elderly relative or you’re a full time carer, you’ll understand how refreshing it can be to have some extra help every now and again so that you’re free to relax.
Respite care is a great way of recharging your batteries, where you can enjoy a fun experience with the person you care for, like having your haircut together, catching a film or enjoying spa treatments. You’ll both be able to enjoy a new and exciting experience, safe in the knowledge that someone else is keeping a close eye on your friend or loved one’s wellbeing and tending to their every need.
It’s a great way of treating yourself and the person you care for in a luxurious environment, without having to be on hand to help with day-to-day tasks 24-7; after all, it’s for you both to relax and enjoy your time!
Respite care needn’t be a day full of tea and bridge (although it can be if you like!). The Riverly Club at Bridge House Care Home, for instance, offers the only cinema in Abingdon with a widescreen experience, showing both new releases and your favourite classic movies, a fitness suite and comprehensive spa, a bistro serving light lunches, fresh pastries and tea and coffee, as well as hosting private dining events throughout the year.
If you’d like to treat yourself and the person you care for with some well deserved respite care or you’d like to find out more, why not take a look at our list of Abingdon based care homes here.
