Care UK homes provide a range of long and short-term care types to support older people to live fulfilling lives.
While short-term care, such as respite or convalescent care, offers individuals a temporary stay in one of our care homes, long-term or permanent care is available for those who require ongoing support with their personal care, health and wellbeing.
We offer different types of long-term care depending on your loved one’s needs, including:
Long-term care supports older people who live with progressive conditions like dementia, who have become frailer in their older age or who simply want to enjoy the comforts of life without the pressure of daily tasks like cooking, cleaning or laundry.
Long-term care also provides residents with opportunities for socialising and making new friends, as well as taking part in activities in and outside of the care home.
If your loved one would like to live somewhere where they can receive help with their personal care, such as washing, dressing and taking medication, a residential care home is likely the right option. A nursing home is the best fit if the individual has medical needs that must be seen to by a registered nurse. Read more about the difference between a care home and a nursing home.
Respite care is available as a short-term care option for older people while their regular carer takes a well-earned break. Respite care can be tailored to each person’s individual needs, whether it be support with washing and dressing, nursing care or dementia care. Our teams can also provide support for those who are recovering from an illness or operation, also known as convalescent care.
