Respite breaks and retreats in stunning village locations
Respite is simply time and care given to individuals for an agreed period of time who need a bit of extra support following an illness or operation in a safe and skilled environment. It also aids clients and their carers a break from the norm in a relaxing space away from home. Our Villages are the perfect place to come to rest in a beautiful and supportive community, a chance to enjoy the fresh air with lovely external terraces and sensory gardens plus inside spaces such as the library, Village restaurant and communal lounges. We’re more than just a care home, which make our respite breaks extra special. A Richmond Village is a place extended family members and friends can really enjoy spending time in a different environment together.
Some carers are looking for a safe and secure home to place a loved one for a short period while they take a holiday elsewhere. Some take the advantage of us being able to accommodate their holiday wishes with a Richmond Retreat – a perfect solution if you’re looking for a break but you don’t want to be apart.
We can accommodate respite on a nursing or residential basis and run offers throughout the year. Care provisions do vary at each location so please contact our Village Advisers who will be able to provide more information based on your needs and requirements.
At Richmond we understand the importance of not just having a beautiful place to live but to have the facilities to match. Along with stylish restaurants and public lounges good food is high on the agenda at all of our villages. Most villages also have a café and shop, hairdressing salon and library, some even have a wellness spa and all have lovely gardens in which to relax and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine.
Each village has their own full-time activities team who organise a wealth of entertainment for our residents.
Typical activities include:
