Redcot is found in a very quiet location, surrounded by beautiful gardens in the attractive town of Haslemere, Surrey. If you’re looking for somewhere peaceful for a respite break then this is perfect.
Redcot is run as a residential home. However it is also able to offer short term respite breaks. Our dedicated team show the same degree of care for our residents whether they are staying with us for a short-term break or for a longer stay.
Respite care for the elderly is designed to provide a temporary haven for older people in order to give their carer a much-needed break. It also gives the person receiving care a chance to socialise in our home, meet and make new friends, enjoy some fresh experiences, and just benefit from being cared for by a compassionate team in a home-from-home environment.
Our rooms at Redcot are spacious, light and airy and have en suite bathrooms. The home also features a drawing room complete with a beautiful grand piano. The garden boasts a sheltered terrace – perfect for relaxing or talking to friends and family with fantastic views to the South Downs.
“I have worked in the health and social care sector for my entire career. At Redcot, my team and I have created a ‘home from home family’ and are dedicated to making a positive difference to all our residents’ lives, ensuring they are happy, safe, and empowered to make well informed choices.
Our person-focused care plans are bespoke to each resident and are regularly reviewed and updated. We take time to talk and get to know each resident, chat about their interests and hobbies, and tailor our daily activities accordingly to make sure everyone can take part in what they want, when they want.
We encourage our respite residents to socialise and get involved, helping and supporting them to be engaged and stimulated whether they are participating in a group exercise class, being creative in an arts and crafts session, taking a walk in our beautiful grounds, enjoying film nights or reminiscing with staff and each other.
The team is friendly, kind and caring – I couldn’t ask for better. They are all compassionate and motivated to deliver outstanding care to each resident – and every day, there’s lots of laughter throughout the home, with staff and residents enjoying each other’s company.”
Respite care during Covid- Get Two Weeks FREE
Due to the current legislation, our newest respite care residents will have to self-isolate for the first 2 weeks of their stay, only being able to integrate with the other residents after that.
With this in mind, we are currently offering 2 weeks of respite care at no extra cost, when you book 2 weeks of respite care from any of our care homes. Meaning that people staying with us for respite care can experience every aspect of living in our care homes, and enjoy all the activities and facilities our homes have to offer.
If you or your loved one only wanted to stay for a portion of the extra free weeks, that’s fine too.
