Respite Care

Respite Care at Alexander House in Exeter supports residents on a short-term basis and relieves a caregiver of the day-to-day duties and responsibilities that come with being a primary carer. Whatever the reason for requiring respite care, we provide comprehensive care that covers a wide variety of medical and wellbeing needs.

Alexander House Care Home takes great pride in ensuring all residents and their loved ones who use our respite care service feel comfortable, safe and happy during their stay.

Defining Respite Care

Respite care is ideal for anyone looking to cover primary care on a short-term basis. Whether an individual has experienced a fall, is recovering from an illness or a caregiver is looking for a short break from their daily duties, respite care is designed to relieve that pressure or worry as we become the temporary care provider. Typically lasting a few weeks, respite care breaks can be both planned or unplanned depending on circumstances. Respite care can also be utilised to experience life in a care home, before making the decision to move there permanently.
