Respite Care

Elderly Respite care at The Priory in Chippenham, Wiltshire provides planned short-term and time-limited breaks for families and other unpaid caregivers. It helps to support and maintain the primary caregiving relationship and is a positive experience for those staying at The Priory. 

Even though many families take great joy in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical and emotional impact for the caregiver can be overwhelming without some support.

Respite provides a break for the family caregiver, which may prove beneficial to their health and of course can often be a welcome break for the person receiving the care.

My father has been a resident for 18 months, during which time there has been a deterioration in his mental and physical health. Despite his increasing needs, the team has risen to the challenge without complaint. He is genuinely cared for, both in practical terms and also emotionally. The ethos is very much family-orientated, and relatives are encouraged to attend events and activities and provide feedback on the care provided. There is a useful monthly general newsletter, but the staff are approachable at any time for updates on individual residents. The skills and attitudes of the staff and management are outstanding, but it should be noted that the food is well received, the rooms warm and kept clean. In summary, my experience is of a caring, well-run homely home, and I am very appreciative of all that they do for my father.
