Care home launches new respite care service

Company news

A NEW respite care service has been launched at a Rickmansworth care home.

The service, at Care UK’s Chalfont Court home in Uxbridge Road, will offer people the chance to use the home’s facilities between 8am and 8pm throughout the week.
The service can be booked on an hourly basis and has been designed to offer high quality care for older people living with dementia whilst giving their family carers some valuable respite time.

Keren Welch, manager of Chalfont Court said: “This is an exciting new venture which is available to the whole community.
“The respite service will offer people the chance to enjoy high quality care and assistance, even if they are not ready to move into a care home.

“People coming along for the day will be able to enjoy our facilities and take part in the various activities our staff run, from gardening and bakery through to arts and crafts and other occupational therapies.
“It will also provide a valuable break for carers, who can take a rest while their loved one spends some time with us.”

For more information about the service and how to book a visit, call Keren Welch on 01923 772378.
