Respite Care in Leicester

The Ashton Care Home is a private and luxurious care facility located in the charming market town of Hinckley, Leicestershire. Our facility has 72 en-suite bedrooms and offers leading Respite, Nursing, Residential and Dementia Care. 

All of our types of care are administered by a qualified and committed team of professionals who will continue to provide care around-the-clock, seven days a week. Our house, which is situated on a residential street, radiates a welcoming atmosphere thanks to a dedicated team of caregivers and a beautiful interior design.

What is Respite Care? 

When it comes to giving caregivers and those individuals who are recovering from injuries away from their normal routines, there’s no denying that Respite Care is the best option. Often, the caregiver role is filled in by a friend or a loved one. This can sometimes make it difficult to separate one’s personal life from one’s professional life, making it even harder to create necessary boundaries in order to take time for oneself. Respite Care works in a way that allows caregivers a moment where they don’t have to worry about looking after their dependent, as the teams here at The Ashton already have it under control. 

As mentioned previously, Respite Care is also a fantastic option for those who have recently undergone an injury and are struggling to carry out their usual day-to-day activities without additional support. Specialist care for older people who are facing adversity is so important, and being able to give them the personal care they deserve in our purpose-built care home is so fulfilling for each and every member of our residential home care team. We at The Ashton can provide ongoing assistance and support to those who are recovering by giving them access to all of the facilities while they get back on their feet. We want to give all of our residents the reassurance that help will always be given to them, as and when they need it.

Respite Care at The Ashton

Respite care can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, or even longer in certain circumstances. No matter how long you choose to stay with us at The Ashton, you will always receive a high level of care that is completely centred around you and your own personal needs. We always complete a pre-admission examination and assessment to make sure we can properly address your needs before you move into our home. In order to provide the greatest care and services for each and every one of our residents, we then create a personalised care plan for each resident. 

Depending on how each resident progresses throughout their stay with us, this care plan is always subject to change to ensure our residents are getting the very most out of their stay. We at The Ashton are aware of how difficult it can be to decide whether or not to move into a care facility. Therefore, we also encourage potential residents to try out our Respite Care for a brief period of time to see if life in our care home suits them. We are thrilled to be able to provide our Respite Care services as a vital component when it comes to assisting caregivers and recovering individuals. We want them to enjoy a much-needed break in our warm, cosy, and supportive home.

Our Care Home in Leicester

All of our residents can enjoy a stunning range of amenities, services, and facilities at our all-inclusive, welcoming home in Hinckley. As a facility offering Respite Care in Leicestershire, we always make an effort to offer a wide variety of options to all of our residents so that they can fully enjoy life. There is something for everyone at The Ashton Care Home, from peaceful evenings reading in the lounge to weekly gardening activities. Our amenities have been carefully chosen to offer residents a lifestyle rich in diversity and freedom.

We encourage all of our residents to fully utilise the services and amenities we have to offer, as well as our days out in the local neighbourhood, regardless of how long or why they are staying with us at The Ashton. We’ve got our very own person-centred weekly activities schedule that’s been put together by our Activity Coordinators so that every single one of our residents has their ideas and suggestions listened to and incorporated.

What makes Leicestershire stand out from the crowd is its incredible mix of charming market towns and the vibrant city centre. The city centre is host to plenty of exciting events and festivals throughout the year, such as the Timber Festival 2022 and The Victory Show. For those who want to take a step back in time, there’s still lots of uncover about the city’s fascinating history and heritage. We recommend taking a trip to the King Richard III Visitor Centre or paying a visit to Leicester Cathedral to take in some truly breathtaking history and architecture.
