Whether you’ve been caring for a loved one long-term, or helping them recuperate from a recent illness, arranging short-term respite care can work wonders for both you and your elderly family member. We all know how incredibly challenging the last two years have been and even more so for those of us that have had to look after loved ones. One in nine of us are carers in Kent and the pandemic has meant 64% of carers have not had a single break in two years.
Respite care provides temporary and professional help in a safe environment. At Birchwood House in Speldhurst, Kent, we’ve been offering short-term care for over 25 years. Set in 9 acres of beautiful countryside, breaks can be planned, or in cases of emergency, organised at short notice.
Respite allows you as a carer, to take a much need break and recharge, plus it will provide companionship and stimulation for your loved ones being in a new environment with other people. To learn more, why not read our Respite Care FAQs?

With freshly cooked wholesome meals, and a fully qualified and experienced friendly team of carers, you can be assured Birchwood will look after your loved ones with dignity, respect, and warmth.
