A helping hand

We know how hard it can be caring for your loved one. It can be even harder to do anything else if they need round the clock care. We all need a break sometimes. We understand how hard it can be to do anything about it. Brookside can provide a safe haven for your loved one that could allow you to take a break, worry-free.

Introducing our respite care service

We can provide loving care for your loved one, for as short or long a period as you need. You could take care of other responsibilities, take a few days to yourself, go on holiday, or even take a few months to refresh and revive yourself. We can help shoulder the responsibility so that you can take the time you need; knowing that your loved one is safe and looked after.

A break for everyone

Your loved one will be provided with all of the benefits we provide to our full time residents. They will also benefit from a change of scenery, they’ll make new friends, all while having our professional, friendly carers taking care of their every need.

Your loved one will have their own well-appointed room, which they can make as familiar as you like by bringing their own pictures, books, ornaments, blankets. Whatever they need to ensure their stay is as comfortable as we can make it.

We have daily activities which your loved one is welcome to join in with. If they prefer quiet time, there are plenty of spaces for them to indulge. Many of our residents who do not get involved in all activities still enjoy watching their friends do so. There is a real family feel, and just being around others can provide well needed company, even for those who aren’t so active.

Our highly trained carers are on hand around the clock, to help in any way or just to have a friendly chat. So you can rest easy in the knowledge that your loved one is receiving the very best of care and attention.
