Pre-bookable short Term Respite Service

Everyone needs a break some time, not least when you’re caring for a loved one or relative. That’s why, we always keep a room clear for short respite stays. So carers can get a well-earned rest. Pre-Bookable Respite rooms are available at Randolph Hill in Dunblane and Ashley Court in Morningside. 

It’s a good break for our guests as well. They may be with us for a week, or a little longer, but from day one we get to know them, their likes and dislikes, their interests and hobbies.

Keeping body and mind active is important, so we offer 120 hours of planned activities – that’s twice the amount advised by the Care Inspectorate.

And when you look good you feel good, so we have an on-site hair and beauty salon. For us it’s about more than just high quality nursing care. It’s about high quality lifestyle too.

When you’re taking a break, Randolph Hill is the perfect home from home.

What we offer

  • Advanced bookings throughout the year
  • 24 hour nursing care, GP services and nurse call
  • Sky TV including Sports and Movies
  • Telephone and internet access in bedrooms
  • High quality food
  • Beautifully maintained garden
  • Events, activities and minibus
