Frequently Asked Questions

Respite care at Cramond Residence provides short-term care for people who are normally looked after at home or in the community. It is often used to give carers a break (particularly when they are friends or family) or to help cope with a short-term emergency.

Respite care can be a great option if you are just looking for a change from your usual routine and you’d like to meet new people and socialise.

However, it can also be an excellent solution if your carer needs a break. The truth of the matter is that being a carer for a family member 24/7 can sometimes become stressful and challenging. If you look after someone and you feel that you need a break then you should definitely consider short-term respite care for them at Cramond Residence.

Respite care can benefit a wide range of people. We can offer care to those who are frail, who have a disability, or who are living with an illness or condition such as dementia.

Respite care is often taken on a regular basis. When a number of regular breaks are taken over an extended period of time, this can be extremely beneficial for both the individual involved and for their carer.

One of the main benefits of respite care is that it provides an opportunity for the person entering the care home to have a change of scene, meet new people, socialise, make new friends and also to try out fun, new experiences.

At Cramond Residence, our small-group living approach creates a warm and welcoming environment in which those on a respite break can easily get to know those people in their section of the home.

Our accommodation offers the comforts of home alongside the luxury of a hotel and we have a range of facilities such as a hairdressing salon, a cinema room and beautiful gardens. Add to that our wonderful menu of healthy and delicious food.
To make any respite care break especially enjoyable, we also run a regular programme of events and activities (from art groups to gardening clubs) which everyone is welcome to take part in.

Alongside the lifestyle benefits it brings, respite care also ensures that the person coming into care can benefit from all of the nursing, medical and therapeutic support that can be provided within a dedicated care home facility.

At Cramond Residence, 24-hr nursing care is available. Our nurses are highly trained and very experienced and are specialised in many different areas, including the care of those living with dementia. We also have the services of visiting GPs and offer dedicated physiotherapy support and gym facilities.

Respite care doesn’t just help the person going into the care home, it also helps his or her carers and family, giving them a break and providing them with the peace of mind that their loved one is being well cared for.

Because respite care gives carers a bit of time off, it can provide them with the opportunity to take a holiday, see their friends and other members of their family and to catch up on other things.

This can be a vital way for carers to recharge their batteries, so that they are refreshed and re-energised for the time when the person they look after needs their help again. For this reason, respite care can really help enhance the relationship between carers and those they look after.

Respite breaks can really help on their own and, when taken frequently, can lead to a smooth transition into long-term residential care and support. Because the person involved will have got to know the care home they’re visiting, they’ll really feel at home when they transition into full time care.

One other thing to keep in mind is that taking a respite break in a care home can be a very good way of seeing if you like the care home and to check that it can provide the level of care you are looking for and need.

You can rest assured that your loved one will benefit from the best possible care and be able to enjoy all the benefits that Cramond Residence offers, including luxurious accommodation, freshly prepared nutritious meals, pre and post-dinner drinks, fantastic facilities and a wide range of activities and entertainments.
