Pre-Bookable Respite Care

Pre- Bookable Short Term Respite Care

Everyone needs a break from time to time, not least when you’re caring for a loved one. That’s why, at some of our nursing homes, we keep a room clear for short respite stays so that family carers can get a well-earned rest. Pre-bookable respite rooms are available at Ashley Court in Morningside, Kirk Lane in Livingston, Muirfield in Gullane, and Randolph Hill in Dunblane.

It’s a good break for our respite 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 a full and varied schedule of activities for all to enjoy, depending on their particular choices. And when you look good, you feel good, so we have an on-site hair 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, a Randolph Hill nursing home is the perfect home from home.
