Care Period

As well as long-term care permanent placements some care homes will offer different lengths of stay depending on your care needs. Temporary care, also known as respite care, can provide carers with a short break from their usual care responsibilities. Intermediate care can often be arranged following a stay in hospital. Day visits/Day care services are provided by some care homes. Most care homes also have ‘trial stays’ for residents who may become permanent long-term residents.
