Respite Care

We are proud to offer unrivalled levels of Respite Care at our purpose-built care home in Lanark. Respite Care allows you to relax and revitalise with our great team, helping you to get back on your feet. It also allows caregivers and family members to have some time to themselves.

Our kind and knowledgeable staff are trained to recognise and respond to a wide range of medical conditions, allowing them to provide individualised care 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Respite Care is subject to availabilty.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is a short-term care alternative that allows primary carers to take scheduled and unscheduled breaks from their responsibilities. We’ve put up a Respite package to give you the time you need while knowing your loved one is in good hands. We’ve created a respite package to allow you to take the time you need, knowing that your loved-one is in safe, caring hands. Whether it’s to help a loved one with additional nursing requirements after a stay in the hospital to help them get back on their feet, or to recharge, get some medical treatment for yourself or just some time out, we’ve created a respite package to allow you to take the time you need, knowing that your loved-one is in safe hands.

Our Approach to Respite Care

Individuals can live in a safe and welcoming atmosphere in our home, with care adapted to their specific requirements. All members of staff share a holistic approach to care that addresses all of our residents’ health, well-being and interests. Our purpose-built home provides residents with as much convenience and accessibility as possible, allowing them to feel safe and comfortable while retaining their freedom.

When is Respite Care Necessary?

Caregivers’ health is equally as important as the health of the person they are caring for. The quality of care delivered by a worried and tired caregiver is likely to suffer as a result. Caregivers can be assured that, whether caring for a loved one or simply needing a break, Beechgrove Care Home will provide a safe, inviting and supportive atmosphere. 

Personalised Care By a Qualified Care Team

The staff at Beechgrove Care Home go above and beyond to make sure residents feel happy in their new surroundings. The high standards of care we provide caters to both health and well-being demands as we believe caring for an individual in their entirety is vital to achieving the most effective care. Our person-centred approach to care means we customise each care plan, by making them precise and adaptable when the time comes. All of the care types we provide take place in a loving environment and tranquil setting, designed to make everyone feel that Beechgrove is a place they can call home.

Healthcare Services at Beechgrove:

We provide a rewarding lifestyle by combining person-centred care with all-inclusive facilities. Medical services required from an external source are also available, which includes the following:

GP Visits

If residents have any health concerns, they are entitled to schedule regular appointments with a local doctor’s surgery. They can choose to be accompanied by a staff member or attend alone. 

Eye Appointments

If any of our residents have any eye-related concerns and need to be seen by an optician, they will be able to attend a routine appointment. Any treatment carried out may come at an additional cost, so we advise checking with the team at Beechgrove before going ahead.

Dental Care

Oral care is extremely important, especially as we grow older. Those who would like regular check-ups or residents who may be experiencing oral pain can visit a dentist during their stay. 

Physiotherapy

If physiotherapy is medically prescribed, your primary nurse can arrange this service for you, or if a resident would like a private arrangement, this can also be provided.

Chiropody

For residents experiencing foot pain or who have a foot injury, we have a private chiropodist who can attend to your chiropody needs at least once every eight weeks and more regularly as necessary. Please check any fees before booking an appointment.

Five Star Facilities For a Fulfilling Life

It is our aim to ensure residents feel as comfortable as possible from the moment they arrive at Beechgrove, no matter their situation.

There are many beautifully furnished rooms around the home that provide a social setting and our Activities Coordinators provide an activities schedule each week that integrates residents’ interests and hobbies.
