Lindsey Lodge has a dedicated nurse-led respite bed in a beautifully furnished room with en-suite facilities. The accommodation is bright and airy, with French doors which open out onto our beautiful gardens.
 

What is respite?


Respite is a way for carers to take a break from caring. If friends and family provide a significant amount of care this may enable them to have a break from caring, for example, to take a holiday.

Even if you don’t require a great deal of care from someone else, respite can provide a break from looking after yourself at home.

If the bed is booked many months in advance, we will always contact you before your admission to reassess your suitability for respite.

Respite is not intended to be used where you have a deterioration in your symptoms. In this case you may need to be referred to our Inpatient Unit.

 

Who is able to book a respite bed?


Anyone who would be eligible to receive services from Lindsey Lodge Hospice. You don’t need to be attending already.
 

How do I book respite at Lindsey Lodge?


You, your family or professionals involved in your care at home can contact Lindsey Lodge to enquire about vacancies, or book our respite bed.
