Need to take a break from nursing your loved one but can't see how?

Nursing an elderly loved one can be hard work and often ties you to home almost all day every day. Even if you can get away for short periods or are supporting your loved one but not living with them, getting the opportunity to take a longer term break can be very difficult.

You could engage the services of a home care company, though they can’t be there 24 hours a day and there’s always the risk that something will happen while you’re not there. And anyway, it’s not ideal having strangers coming into the house especially if your loved one is vulnerable.

If you’re facing this problem where you desperately need to take a break but can’t see how we’d like to offer you the ideal solution.

Introducing our Respite Nursing Care service

Wouldn’t it be great if you could trust someone else to look after your loved one with the same loving care that you do? Then you’d be free to take as much time away as you need secure in the knowledge that they’re completely safe and being well looked after.

We’ll that’s exactly what you’ll find with our new respite nursing care service. Your loved one can spend anything from a single day to several weeks with us at Ambleside Nursing Home. It’s perfect if you need to take a short trip for a few days or want to go on holiday for a week or two.

You can even have them stay longer- several months if you needed to go into hospital or wanted an extended visit to abroad, for example.

You get all the benefits of full time residential nursing care

Your loved one will experience a refreshing change of scenery, make new friends and be fully cared for 24 hours a day in this home from home. They’ll have their own well appointed room to maintain privacy and can even bring along their own knickknacks to make it even more familiar and comfortable.

Nearly every day there are interesting, exciting and fun activities and events they can join in if they’re physically able. Or, if they’d prefer some quiet time there are plenty of places to simply read peacefully or just relax.

Our highly trained and caring staff is on hand 24/7 to help in any way needed or just to have a friendly chat. So you can rest easy in the knowledge that your loved one is receiving the best possible care and attention.

So, we’d like to offer your loved one the opportunity to spend a day here at Ambleside Nursing Home. It’s completely free so there’s no risk or cost to you whatsoever.
