A Home From Home

Our Respite Centre provides a home-from-home for people with dementia and gives their carers peace of mind that their loved one is not only safe, but enjoying themselves.

Stays in respite usually need to be pre-booked, as we need to visit you at home to undertake a full assessment of your needs before you stay with us. Bookings can be arranged for a single night or for longer periods. In exceptional circumstances, we can offer emergency respite care at short notice, subject to availability.

Our Residential Respite service is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and is rated as Good in all areas of service delivery and Outstanding for being a Well-led care provider.

 

Facilities

The Centre has five en-suite bedrooms, all with accessible toilets and hand basins and two with showers. One of our bedrooms is fully DDA compliant, with an accessible shower and bed hoist. All rooms are decorated to a high standard, have dementia-friendly furniture, electrically-operated beds and comfy mattresses. There is a separate bathroom in the Centre with dementia-friendly fittings and an electronic, Jacuzzi bath.

 

To assist with people’s orientation we have incorporated the same dementia-friendly design in our respite rooms as we have with our Day Club.

People staying in our Residential Respite Centre have full use of the wide range of facilities on offer in our Newcastle Day Centre, including taking meals in our restaurant. However, if they want some quiet time away from our Day Club activities, there is a separate lounge and kitchen/dining room in the Respite Centre.
