Respite Care

Who needs respite care?

Respite or Short Stay care is a temporary living solution at one of our care homes and can either be arranged in advance or because of an emergency. A respite stay at Amicura can last anywhere from several days to a few weeks.

Our approach to Respite Care


Short term care can provide either you, or your loved ones, with security knowing that you are being cared for 24 hours a day after an operation or illness. It allows you to focus on getting your strength back in a few weeks before being returning home.  

Short-term stays 

These stays are ideal if you feel you would benefit from spending time in our care to give a break to your family or your carer at home. Often family carers find it tough to ask for a break and so some time away from them will help them with their personal health and alleviate stress.  

Transitioning to full time care 

We recognise the decision to move into full-time care can be challenging, however many individuals find the experience easier if they have been with us in respite care. Here they have formed friendships with other residents, are familiar with the facilities and our staff are already aware of their care needs. Respite care provides a good chance to experience if our care home setting is the right fit.

Wellbeing focused Care

At times living at home can feel lonely, and so a respite break will allow you to engage in activities within the home and interact with the home’s residents. It can also provide your loved ones, or carers, the chance to meet others with similar circumstances and access the community support they need.  

At Amicura we have found that through meaningful engagement with other residents and staff, individuals have returned for respite care at regular intervals. All residents, respite and longer term, are encouraged to participate in the creative and educational activities that are available, whether to pursue a hobby or develop a new one. 

Our home environments

All our homes are purpose-built meaning they have been designed with care in mind. We recognise that a change of scenery can provide an individual with a renewed sense of energy, and so our team have created stimulating, tasteful environments in order to have a lasting, positive impact on your wellbeing. 

In advance of your admission, our qualified team will meet you and your loved ones to assess your needs and create an individualised care plan to suit you.

“The care given to my mother was very good. She was in for a few weeks respite and was very happy there. She felt safe and was very well looked after. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming and she loved having her hair and nails done there. We wouldn't hesitate to use this facility again.”

Marilyn Z Daughter of Resident - Haslingden

“The staff as a whole are friendly and welcoming. Since Mum has been there, needing total care, she is always clean, looks well cared for and appears happy and comfortable. The staff are a happy team and in my opinion often go above and beyond.”

Diane M Daughter of Resident - Harmony House

“The care home has been amazing with our mum and with us. Always helpful in any way they can to help us look after Mum, especially in this very hard time that we have all experienced.”
