Respite Care

We proudly provide unrivalled levels of Respite Care in Glasgow, here at Boclair Care Home. No matter how long the stay, respite allows both the resident and the primary carer to take a well earned break from usual daily duties, and relieve those pressures and tasks to our professional and welcoming team.

Our Respite Care is designed to assist residents to rest and heal while allowing family members and caregivers to relax. Our kind and experienced respite carer staff are well-versed in recognising and responding to a wide range of health conditions, allowing them to deliver personalised care 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is a short-term care option that allows primary caregivers to take regular and scheduled breaks. Our staff are fully equipped to support a wide range of medical requirements allowing them to create personalised care plans no matter a resident’s needs or length of stay. Our live-in care services allow caregivers to take the time they need, knowing that their loved one is in safe, caring hands.

The length of a respite stay can vary, spanning from a few weeks to several months, depending on the specific needs of each individual. Respite care is especially appropriate for those seeking recuperation or contemplating a temporary stay at a care home to evaluate whether it aligns with their care needs before making an informed decision.
