We offer 24-hour respite care for older people who need extra support following an operation or illness, or temporary care while their regular carer takes a well-earned break.
Tailored short-term care
We’re here to support you with short-term stays in our care homes as and when you need them, and our advance respite stays are perfect for helping you and your loved ones to plan ahead.
Being a full-time carer is a very demanding role. Respite care breaks are an opportunity for you to take a holiday or simply spend some time looking after your own needs, safe in the knowledge that your loved one is receiving the very best care. It can be a valuable break for your loved one too – it’s a chance to meet new people, enjoy a change of scenery and try out some new activities and experiences.
Over July & August take advantage of our Summer respite care offer at Bowbrook, our state of the art dementia-specialist residential care home in the bustling, canal-side village of Fradley in Staffordshire.
"My husband, Peter was diagnosed with dementia 9 years ago. His condition rapidly deteriorated in 2022 to the extent that I, as his wife and sole carer, needed some periods of respite. Amber Wood was recommended to me as a dementia care home and proved to be a life saver for me. Peter was treated with respect and I felt that nothing was too much trouble for the staff to deal with, both at my request or his. When it was apparent, sadly, to both myself and our family that Peter's specific needs had become too much to manage, I was relieved that a permanent place became available at Amber Wood for Peter."
