Respite Care in Dorset

Are you looking for a care home that provides high quality respite care in Dorset?

Respite care presents an opportunity for carers and the person they care for to have a short rest from each other, allowing the carer to take a trip or take time to themselves, safe in the knowledge that a loved one is being well cared for. With such a wide selection of respite care homes to choose from, finding respite care for the elderly or respite care for dementia that meets all of your needs can be taxing. At Trusted Care we understand this and have created our online directory of respite care homes in Dorset to help you to find the best one for your needs.

All of the Dorset respite care homes listed in our easy to use directory are registered with the CQC (Care Quality Commission), England's independent health and social care regulator. A link to the most recent report from the CQC is available on a home's profile page alongside other information including details of facilities and specialisms, a map and gallery.

You will find that some of our respite care homes in Dorset bear a star rating; these homes have been reviewed by those with first-hand experience of a particular home, to help you make this important decision. Reviewed homes have been rated across important key areas including professionalism, dignity, communication and cleanliness.

If you have questions about any of our Dorset respite care homes or would like further information about how to use our directory then get in contact; our team of experienced staff will be happy to help you.
