Respite Care

Respite Care is designed to offer a short stay respite period for you, your family and/or professional carer. A medical referral is not required and you are welcome to arrange respite care directly with us. Most respite stays are agreed in advance and the care period can be as long or short as you wish, subject to accommodation availability.

A care plan will be created, based on your social care and health needs, and your care will be provided in accordance with your wishes and preferences.

When your stay is complete, Silver Stream will maintain your care plan should you wish to return or avail of our continuing care options.

Respite care can also be conducive to assessing whether residential care is a suitable care option for you, allowing you to partake in the daily activities of the home, without fully committing to long stay care.
