Respite Care

Respite for carers or respite vacations for people who need support is an essential service which we are delighted to be able to offer across Bournemouth, Poole and Christchurch areas.

We provide respite in a flexible way, built around your specific needs and that of your loved one.

We are able to offer:

  • weekend breaks
  • longer term residential respite breaks
  • ad hoc support via a day service or care service.

Need some respite on a Saturday?

No problem, we can offer you this at one of our Day Services.

Maybe you would like to join a day service for a few days or even a few hours, please do contact us – we have a range of fantastic facilities to offer ranging from community groups and hobby exploring, to pursuing activities such as swimming.


Maybe you are looking to come and visit the south coast for a holiday.

Would you also like to bring someone with you that needs care and support at certain times?

Maybe you are worried about going away on holiday with someone who may need 24hour care or overnight care?

The safety of our residents is always our top priority, and something that we take extremely seriously. We recognise that all variants of the Covid-19 virus represent a significant risk to the health of vulnerable people, and accordingly we have clear protocols in place to protect those we care for and support.

Rules around visiting have changed as the pandemic has progressed. At present, all visitors to our residential homes must present a negative LFT test result before being allowed access to the buildings, and PPE must be worn whilst visiting.
