Caring for an elderly loved one who is living with dementia can be hard work and often ties you to home almost all day every day. Even if you can get away for short periods or are supporting your loved one but not living with them, getting the opportunity to take a longer term break can be very difficult.
You could engage the services of a home care company, though they can’t be there 24 hours a day and there’s always the risk that something will happen while you’re not there. And anyway, it’s not ideal having strangers coming into the house especially if your loved one is vulnerable and confused by new faces.
If you’re grappling with this problem where you’d like to take a longer break but can’t see how, we’d like to offer you the ideal solution.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could trust someone else to look after your loved one with the same loving care that you do? Then you’d be free to take as much time away as you need secure in the knowledge that they’re completely safe and being well looked after.
We’ll that’s exactly what you’ll find with our new respite care service. Your loved one can spend anything from a single day to several weeks with us at Quarry Mount. It’s perfect if you need to take a short trip for a few days or want to go on holiday for a week or two.
You can even have them stay longer – several months if you needed to go into hospital or wanted to visit relatives abroad for an extended period, for example.
Your loved one will experience a refreshing change of scenery, make new friends and be fully cared for 24 hours a day in this home from home. They’ll have their own well appointed room to maintain privacy and can even bring along their own knickknacks to make it even more familiar and comfortable.
Every day there are interesting and fun dementia friendly activities and events they can join in. Or, if they’d prefer some quiet time there are plenty of places to simply read or enjoy the peacefull and secure gardens.
Our highly trained and caring staff is on hand 24/7 to help in any way needed or just to have a friendly chat. So you can rest easy in the knowledge that you’re loved one is receiving the best possible care and attention.
We’re sure that before you leave them you’ll want to know without doubt that your loved one is going to be properly looked after while you’re away. And they’ll want to check out the place they’ll be staying at to make sure they’re comfortable with their surroundings and the people who will be caring for them.
So, we’d like to offer your loved one the opportunity to spend a day here at Quarry Mount. It’s completely free so there’s no risk or cost to you whatsoever.
This way you’ll be able to see what our service is like and your loved one will be able to experience the excellent level of care and companionship they’ll enjoy while you’re away. Just be warned – they might not want to leave once you come back!
My Father was looked after in one of the bungalows at Quarry Mount for 4 1/2 years. I cannot imagine any other nursing home being more flexible and understanding of his needs as he had no signs of dementia and wanted to be as independent as possible.
The home accommodated his wishes as best they could and made sure we were in agreement with his freedom to visit his local club or go out with friends. Not all care homes would be so tolerant.
Gradually he became less mobile and was looked after superbly with kindness and understanding throughout his various periods of ill health. He passed away in November 2016.
