Respite Care is a popular way of supporting older people before they need permanent residential care, either following an operation or to give a carer a holiday from their care-related duties. Respite care is a short-term stay, often lasting around one to two weeks. Respite care is often arranged to give a regular carer a break from their duties so they can return to these duties with renewed energy. This is quite common and allows the carer to look after their own health and wellbeing. It can also help when more complex support is needed. For example, following an operation. Apart from a personal support which the resident will be getting in a care home, they will also benefit from the company of other people and activities taking place at the care home. Such a change of scenery can be physically and intellectually stimulating for the resident, enhancing their wellbeing and speeding up their recovery. Respite care break can also prepare a person to better transition to full-time life in a residential care home.
Clarendon Lodge helps residents retain their independence and lead a happy and dignified life. The fact that some residents might be living with dementia does not change any of that. People living with dementia often need the same sort of assistance as those receiving residential care, but in a slightly different way. They are aided with all of the daily tasks they may struggle with, assisted to make good decisions and stay safe and supported to maintain their sense of self as their condition progresses. Every person is different with their individual history, memories, experiences, feelings, values, likes and dislikes. Clarendon Lodge staff plan care and support around this life history.
