Bothwell Castle’s Respite Care 

Respite care cannot be limited to one definitive answer because there are so many things we offer that make each experience unique to our guests. If you’ve recently fallen or been admitted to the hospital due to sickness, we recommend staying with us for a short while to help you get back on your feet.

​​Bothwell Castle Care Home will provide the highest-quality respite care to each and every one of our guests until they feel more like themselves again, no matter how long the duration. We invite our guests to get to know the other residents and join in as many new activities as they can while with us. Regardless of how long your stay is, you will become a member of the Bothwell Castle Care Home family.

​​Our Perspective on Respite Care 

We recognise that everyone needs a break from time to time. People who require short-term care, whether for a few weeks or longer, will benefit greatly from our respite care package. This can come in handy around holidays, or to help with recovery from an operation or sickness, for both the carer and the visiting resident.

Respite care can be tailored to fit your schedule and current care plan, with attention given to each individual need. We are so committed at ​​Bothwell Castle Care Home to ensuring that each and every one of our residents and their visitors get the best possible care, as well as the care they require and deserve.
