Respite care in Tameside is now available at very affordable rates – in fact you may qualify for one weeks FREE respite at Staley House, depending on bed availability. We understand that sometime you or your carer needs a break and we are happy to have you stay with us for a short period. If you receive Direct Payments you can use these funds for respite care, even if you are also paying for care at home.
While on respite you enjoy the same care as our permanent residents – all meals are provided, your laundry is done on site and we assist as necessary with all personal care. Users who take advantage of respite care often come back several times a year, and they are always welcome.
Respite can be useful if you are recovering from an operation or illness or if your regular carer is away for some reason.
Tameside social services will help you arrange respite, or simply call us yourself. Speak to the manager Louise to get more details, or come and visit the home to see what we have to offer. We have many people who come to Staley House 3 or 4 times a year on regular stays. They are able to use Direct Payments to fund their stay. We also work closely with home care agencies to ensure that people at home are offered Staley House as an option when more care is needed.
