Sometimes people stay at Pinehurst on a short-term basis. Perhaps when they are convalescing after being in hospital, or so that their spouse, family or carer can go on holiday. They benefit from the same friendly, family atmosphere, 24-hour care and individual attention as our permanent residents. Home-cooked meals, activities and laundry are included in the respite care fees.
Respite care can be for a few days, weeks or months.
Many of our residents have experienced short stays at Pinehurst before deciding that this is the home where they are happy to settle.
