Richmond House offers respite care and short-term breaks

Richmond House now have a respite room suitable for:
  • Short-term breaks
  • Emergency Respite
  • Step Up / Step Down Care

Short-Term Breaks

A planned break for the individual and the carer is sometimes needed. Individuals can book in advance of their break, knowing that their loved one will be well-looked after in Richmond House.

Emergency Respite

If care arrangements break down at home, Richmond House can provide emergency accommodation.

Step Up / Step Down Care

Step up care is an alternative support for someone who is unable to safely remain in their own home just now, but long-term residential care or a hospital admission is not immediately necessary. The service is for adults over the age of 65 where a GP or social work professional has identified that the current support measures which allow them to stay at home are not enough to remain there safely. The aim of the service is to ensure people can return home, with the necessary support, as soon as it is safe to do so. There is no charge to anyone who gets a place in a care home through step up care. Likewise, Individuals may be admitted from a hospital ("step down") for extra care to facilitate a safer return home and prevent early re-admission. This may be to finish a course of treatment, e.g. oral antibiotics, or while awaiting a care package to be put in place.

Fees and Funding

The respite room fee is £748 per week. This includes all care, services and laundry costs.
