Respite Care at BMI Cavell Hospital

Caring for someone can often be a full-time role, and like with any job, can sometimes require a short break. Respite care provides the help and support to enable a family member or carer a break-away from the responsibility of looking after a loved one over your holiday period.

At BMI Cavell Hospital, we understand coming into hospital can often be an emotional and stressful time for many. Our priority is to ensure all of our patients receive the best possible clinical care, giving you the peace of mind that your loved ones are in a safe and caring environment.

Admissions for respite care are self-referred, however, pre-assessment prior to admission will be required.
