Respite Care

Our respite centre allows clients and their family to have a break and feel at ease knowing they are getting the high standard of care they deserve.

As well as being a respite centre, it is also a recovery centre. Clients that are due to come out of hospital, but their homes are not yet ready, can come to us and we can help them on their road to recovery, ready to return home. This can help them get back in to a routine with the help from our carers at the centre.

We have 4 single rooms including a high dependency room with en-suite, ideal for clients who we require mobility equipment just as hoists to transfer. We want to make it possible for anyone to come and visit Whitby, whatever their care needs may be.

The Rooms: (with pictures)

Endeavour Suite

Harbour Suite

Abbey Suite

Yorkshire Dales Suite

All of our rooms feature a TV, wash basin, recliner chair, wardrobes and drawers and an electric bed.  The Yorkshire Dales Suite also has Sky TV facilities plus a special air flow pressure-relieving mattress for high dependency clients. This mattress reduces the risk of pressure sores for those who need to remain in bed.

Meals & Facilities

Meals will be prepared by our chef using fresh local ingredients (when available), these can be eaten in the clients room or in our dining area. We invite our clients to get involved with our weekly shopping list, to ensure all of their favourite snacks and drinks are available during their stay!

There are wet rooms for showering and a spa bath in the day centre, we have additional equipment to allow safe use by people of all abilities. Larger equipment is on site, hoist, standing hoist, ceiling hoist (in spa bathroom) and turntable. Visitors to this facility will also have access to the large lounge/dining area as well as the all-weather garden outdoor area.

Based on the intermediate care and re-ablement concept, the centre will provide 24 hour support for short periods of time up to six weeks maximum for people of all abilities. It will provide step up step down beds (referral only) for NHS patients and will also be available to the private sector to provide respite care and short breaks.

The outdoor area is suitable for all weather conditions, we have our own greenhouse for clients to grow vegetables and plants. This area was Lottery funded and all of the construction work was done by Mandy’s husband, Paul. It is also used as a BBQ area during the summer months with both staff and clients enjoy.
