Respite and short breaks

All our care centres can provide respite or short breaks subject to bed availability. As a hospital St Neots is not able to provide a respite service but can explore short term placements to meet specific needs for individual patients – perhaps to support a community package breakdown or a home modification project.

Our purpose built centres all provide 24 hour nursing care and can support residents with complex nursing and care needs for a week or longer.

Those residents accessing our centres for respite can expect the same excellent level of care and support as our longer term residents and can access whatever activities are taking place throughout their period of stay. Activities will alter from week to week.

Individual bedrooms with ensuite accommodation is offered as standard and the many communal areas enable people to meet new people and share new experiences.

Individual pre-admission assessments ensure that we can provide as seamless transition from home to our care as possible.

Visitors are welcome throughout a person’s respite stay with us.
