Respite Care for the elderly in Folkestone

Respite Care

Need a break from caring for your elderly loved one?

Respite Care at Pelham House Care Home

A short break at Pelham House could be just what you both need

But find it almost impossible to get away?

Caring for an elderly loved one can be hard work and often ties you to home almost all day every day, especially if they're living with dementia. Even if you can get away for short periods, or are supporting your loved one but not living with them, getting the opportunity to take a longer term break can be very difficult.

You could engage the services of a home care company, though they can’t be there 24 hours a day and there’s always the risk that something will happen while you’re not there. In any case it’s not ideal having strangers coming into the house, especially if your loved one is vulnerable and confused by new faces.

So how do you get a break, whether it’s covering a two-week holiday or because its urgently needed because of sickness or a family emergency?

If you’re grappling with this problem where you need to take a longer break but can’t see how, we’d like to offer you the ideal solution.

Introducing our respite care service

Wouldn’t it be great if you could trust someone else to look after your loved one with the same loving care that you do? Then you’d be free to take as much time away as you need secure in the knowledge that they’re completely safe and being well looked after.

Well that’s exactly what you’ll find with our respite care service. Your loved one can spend anything from a single day to several weeks with us at Pelham House. It’s perfect if you need to take a short trip for a few days or want to go on holiday for a week or two.

You can even have them stay longer – several months if you needed to go into hospital or wanted to visit relatives abroad for an extended period, for example.

Surrounded by people who truly care about her


Caroline E Daughter of Resident

Working in the NHS I knew exactly what I wanted from a Care Home. Pelham House delivers this. Family run. My mum loves being surrounded by people who truly care about her and I am confident that all her needs are met and that she is flourishing under their care.

Would happily recommend to anyone

You get all the benefits of full time residential care

Every day there are interesting and fun activities and events they can join in. Or, if they’d prefer some quiet time, there are plenty of places to simply read or enjoy the peaceful and secure gardens.

Our highly trained and caring staff is on hand 24/7 to help in any way needed or just to have a friendly chat. So you can rest easy in the knowledge that you’re loved one is receiving the best possible care and attention.

Your loved one will experience a refreshing change of scenery, make new friends and be fully cared for 24 hours a day in this home from home. They’ll have their own well-appointed room to maintain privacy and can even bring along their own treasured mementos to make it even more familiar and comfortable.

It's great value for money

The respite care service is £175 per day. That's great value. Just compare it with a stay at a hotel. How much would it cost at a hotel to have:

  • Fully furnished and elegantly decorated room
  • All 3 main meals provided
  • Unlimited snacks and drinks
  • Full personal care 24/7
  • Entertainment, activities and events all laid on
  • All your clothes washed and ironed
