At Darsdale we offer a service, known as respite care, for people who wish to stay with us on a short term basis.  This can be for people who need a little extra support whilst recovering from an illness or operation and can be for one week or a few months.  Respite stays can also be arranged to give the carer of someone who is unable to look after them-selves a well-earned rest or provide whilst they are on holiday.

Whatever the reason we want our respite residents to enjoy a wide variety of recreation and leisure pursuits, and to indulge themselves in our delicious and nutritionally balanced home cooked meals prepared in-house by our catering teamf.  It is an opportunity to meet new friends and we guarantee a very warm welcome by our friendly and reliable staff. Many respite residents, having first sampled home life through a respite period of care, do in fact end up staying permanently. It is a great way to sample the standard of care on offer.

Our inclusive approach is applied to all our respite residents no matter how short their stay is and we aim to ensure that they maintain their independence and freedom of choice whilst providing them with the security of around-the-clock support to ensure optimum peace of mind.

Offering respite care in Northamptonshire, Darsdale welcomes  residents and their families from surrounding towns and villages. We are pleased to welcome residents from nearby towns such as Wellingborough, Rushden, Northampton, Peterborough, Bedford and Stamford – we even have guests from as far away as Cornwall who come  for respite breaks with us.
