Respite and recovery

Maximise your health with Enliven’s short-term care.

Enliven’s short-term care can provide elders, and also family carers, with some well deserved rest and recovery. All short-stay guests have their own rooms, all meals provided and access to 24-hour practical assistance for the duration of their stay.

Guests are also invited to take part in the homes tailored recreation activities and social events including arts and crafts, quizzes and games, sight-seeing tours, music, entertainment and special events. They can also enjoy the companionship of others at a similar stage of life.

Respite Care

Respite care is short-term residential care that offers you a chance to enjoy a change of scenery, practical daily assistance and all that Enliven homes have to offer. Guests often tell us their stay feels like a “little holiday”.

For family carers, Enliven’s respite service offers the chance to take a well deserved break, all the while knowing their loved one is safe and well cared for. And for those planning for the future, taking a respite ‘holiday’ is a great way to experience life at an Enliven home.


Health Recovery Care

Our health recovery care, also known as convalescent care, provides you with short-term hospital-level care. This service is perfect if you want that extra bit of support while recovering from illness, injury or surgery.


Dementia Care respite

Caring for a loved one with dementia can be tiring; you will need a break. Enliven homes can provide specialist short-term respite and day activity programmes for elders with dementia. We can give you the time to recharge your batteries.

All Enliven Central homes provide some level of dementia care, however and we also have secure dementia cottages for elders experiencing significant or advanced dementia.
