Sometimes people find living in their own home is no longer possible because of frailty, ill health, disability, or being unable to manage their home. Whatever the reason, leaving your own home to be cared for by someone else, even for a short period, requires careful consideration.

An Assessment of your care needs is an important step in deciding if you need to move to sheltered housing, or a care home.

If you have increased care needs for a limited period, your needs may be met by respite care, rather than entering a care home on a permanent basis.  

There is an option for a short term admission to a care home or to the Step Up/Step Down service in one of our Sheltered Housing Complexes.
