Park House offers respite care for people who may be unwell, need some support whilst their family are away or have had a stay in hospital and need to build up their confidence. Many people find that a short stay in a care home enables them to continue living independently at home.

Moving Into a Care Home
Adult social Care are committed to supporting people to remain independent and living in their own home for as long as is safe to do so. There are a range of services available to support this. Sometimes it is in the persons best interests to move into a residential care home. This will only take place after an assessment has been completed by a social care worker and it is agreed that this is the safest and most appropriate option for the service user. The cost of running a residential or nursing home means everyone has to pay something towards their stay. How much that is depends on your personal circumstances and will will look at your finances with you to help you work out how much you will have to pay.
