We recognise that everyone requires a break from time to time. We’ve put together a short-term Respite Care Package to provide the primary caregiver with some much-needed rest, or if you’d just like a little bit of an escape somewhere different. We’ve devised a short-term respite package to relieve strain and free up time, whether it’s to support a loved one with additional medical help after a stint in the hospital to help them get back on their feet or to recharge, receive some medical treatment for yourself, or just some time out. Our Respite Care is customised for each client and can last anywhere from a week to a few months.

Each resident will be allocated a Primary Care Nurse who will meet with them regularly to discuss and assess their requirements, develop a customised person-centred plan, and monitor and review their care on a regular basis.

What’s Local to Etive House Care Home?

When it comes to Benderloch, it’s important to note that there are plenty of areas just waiting to be explored, whether that’s by our residents or their friends and family members. Although the area of Benderloch consists of a variety of smaller towns and villages, the town of Oban is the one that sits closest to Etive House Care Home. Benderloch, in fact, is only a small settlement, and it is along the main road which connects plenty of areas with one another. For example, there is Connel to the north, Loch Creran to the northeast and Etive to the southwest. What sets our location of Benderloch apart from everywhere else in the world, however, is the incredible access and view of Barcaldine Castle

This castle is certainly not to be missed, as it was once an early 17th-century tower house. If you’re looking to move into Etive House Care Home, and you just so happen to be a big fan of history, you’re guaranteed to not be disappointed. Also in the Benderloch area, if you were to travel in a slightly more northerly direction, you would find the Ardchattan Priory Garden situated right in the northern area of Loch Etive.

However, if you’re looking for somewhere to do a spot of people-watching, eat and drink your afternoon away, or even spend a long night out on the town, then central Oban is for sure your best bet. Catch a live jazz performance, take an art class or have a look at whatever exhibition might be on show at The Rockfield Centre, or partake in a bit of window shopping in the town centre. While you’re there, there’ll be even more history for you to discover, from Mccaig’s Tower to the Oban War & Peace Museum.

However long you wish to spend wandering the celebrated streets of Oban, or however long you’d like to spend exploring the nearby natural sights that Shian Wood or the Falls of Lora can bring, Etive House Care Home will always be there to welcome you back home after an exhausting day of frivolous adventuring. In fact, we often like to join our residents on their outings. Our talented Activity Coordinators take great pride in organising exciting days out for all the Etive House Care Home family to enjoy, including our resident’s loved ones.
