Respite Care

​​Bothwell Castle Care Home provides Respite Care in South Lanarkshire, in a welcoming, caring, and supportive environment. In addition to Respite Care, we also take pride in providing a variety of other care services including Nursing Care, Dementia Care, and Residential Care. We go to great lengths to make sure that all those who stay with us feel as though they are in their own home, whether they are staying on a temporary or permanent basis.

We provide people with a place to relax and unwind, and we’re confident that a brief stay with us will have individuals feeling like their usual selves in no time. Staying with us for a short while provides individuals with enough time to fully recover, whether it’s due to a fall or recovering from an illness. It also allows friends, family members, and carers the chance to have a break as well. We strive to provide each and every resident with a home-from-home experience with around-the-clock care and support in addition to a range of high-quality facilities that are free to be used at their leisure. 

What is Respite Care?

Respite care can help both individuals and carers in a number of ways. For people who have recently suffered from an injury or illness, a short-term stay can assist with the recuperation process and help them get back on their feet. For those receiving home care from a carer, a carer will occasionally need a break so that they can take the time they need for themselves whilst knowing that high-quality care will continue to be provided for their loved one.

​​Bothwell Castle is a residential care home in South Lanarkshire that delivers the highest standards of medical support and personal care. We also encourage those living at our care home to get to know each other and every resident is free to join in with as many activities as they wish. Regardless of how long an individual’s stay is, they will be welcomed with open arms at Bothwell Castle Care Home.

Respite Care FAQs

Bothwell Castle Care Home offers respite care, which is accessible to individuals in need of short-term support. Respite care serves as a valuable option for those seeking recovery and assistance with daily activities when their primary caregiver requires a break from their caregiving responsibilities.

Furthermore, if an individual or their loved one is contemplating full-time care, respite care can also be used as a trial period for up to 4 weeks, allowing them to assess if our care home is the right fit for their long-term needs.

At Bothwell Castle Care Home, we maintain consistent levels of care and services for all our residents, regardless of the duration of their stay. During their residency, each individual can expect a private bedroom, access to nourishing meals and refreshments, engagement in a variety of activities and entertainment, use of our in-house facilities, and the necessary support with their daily living activities. Depending on their specific care requirements, nursing care may also be provided.

The duration of a respite care stay can vary, depending upon the specific needs of the individual and the availability of respite care beds. However, at Bothwell Castle Care Home, we do have a minimum stay requirement of 2 weeks. This duration is designed to provide residents with ample time to settle in and fully benefit from the support and care provided.
