Respite care at Fremantle

As a carer, you’ll know there is never a dull moment when caring for a loved one. And whilst being a carer can be extremely rewarding, it can also be both mentally and physically draining.

We recognise that everyone needs a break from time to time and we also know that some carers can often feel guilty about this, even questioning their loyalty and devotion to the person for whom they provide care. This is where we come in.

Types of respite care

At Fremantle Trust, we offer various types of respite care to suit the needs of individuals and their families:

  1. Planned respite: Scheduled short-term stays to provide temporary relief for primary caregivers.
  2. Emergency respite: Immediate care for individuals in urgent need of support.
  3. Convalescent respite: Specialised care for individuals recovering from illness or surgery.
  4. Holiday respite: Short-term stays for individuals who require care while their primary caregivers are away on vacation.
  5. Taster weekends respite: Perfect for those who want to experience our care firsthand, these weekends offer a glimpse into life at Fremantle Trust, providing individuals and their families with peace of mind and reassurance.

How respite care can help you

We know how to help as we’ve been doing this for a long time. We understand that what you need is a little bit of ‘me time’ to help recharge your batteries, so that you can return to your caring role feeling rested and refreshed.

Our care homes also offer respite care for those living with dementia and emergency respite care services which help support the needs of a dependent person if their usual carer is unable to assist due to unforeseen circumstances.

At The Fremantle Trust, our experienced, caring and compassionate teams will provide you with all the information and support you need to make an informed decision about the type of respite care needed for your loved one, whether that’s in a nursing home or a residential home. We will listen, guide, support and reassure you to make the right choices, so you can be safe in the knowledge that your loved one, will receive the highest standards of care and support possible, giving you peace of mind while you take a well-deserved break.

Providing a ‘home from home’ for your loved ones

We provide homely, safe and welcoming environments, and our dedicated teams will provide expert day-to-day care and support that is combined with kindness, warmth and friendship, so your loved one feels right at home.

There are many reasons why respite care might be the best option for you at this time. It’s important to take some time for yourself - it will do you and your loved one the world of good.

Most of our homes offer short term respite care, dependent on availability and care needs.
