Respite Care

At Etive House Care Home, we are delighted to provide unrivalled levels of Respite Care in purpose-built facilities. No matter how long you stay with us, Respite Care allows you to relax and be cared for by our exceptional team.

Our Respite Care programme helps patients to rest and heal while also allowing family members and caregivers to relax. Our kind and experienced staff are well-versed in recognising and responding to a wide range of health conditions, allowing them to deliver individualised care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

What is Respite Care?

Respite Care is a short-term care option that allows primary caregivers to take regular and unscheduled breaks. We’ve created a Respite package to allow you to take the time you need out from everyday responsibility, knowing that your loved one is in safe, caring hands. Whether a loved one needs additional assistance after a stay in the hospital to help them get back on their feet, or whether you need to recharge following a stressful situation, we have everything someone would need to feel back to themselves once more.

Our Approach to Respite Care

Our home provides a safe and comfortable environment for individuals to live in, with care tailored to their specific needs. We employ a holistic approach to care that considers all of our residents’ health, well-being and interests, which is a shared vision by all members of staff. Etive House has been built to provide as much ease and accessibility as possible to its residents, allowing them to feel safe and comfortable while maintaining as much independence as possible.

When is Respite Care Necessary?

Respite Care is designed to be a pleasant experience for both residents and carers. The health of caregivers is just as vital as the health of the person they are caring for. The quality of care provided by a caregiver who is stressed and weary is likely to diminish as a result. We provide short-term respite care for anyone who requires it, with stays ranging from a week to a few months.

Specially Selected Care for our Residents by Trustworthy Professionals

Our staff always go above and beyond to provide exceptional care to all of our residents here at Etive House Care Home. Our qualified team takes a huge amount of pride in delivering care that respects our resident’s privacy and dignity. The high-quality care we provide will cater to both health and well-being needs as we believe looking after the individual as a whole is vital to ensuring the best care. By working with prospective residents, we can customise individual care plans which can be altered if and when necessary. All types of care take place in a welcoming environment and peaceful setting, designed to make everyone feel at home in their environment.

Etive House Care Home’s Available Medical Services

Our residents deserve the best, most thought-through and dedicated services that we here at Etive House Care Home can provide. We do this by combining a high standard of quality care alongside our all-inclusive facilities, ensuring our residents are never left without proper attention. In addition, we realise that it’s essential our residents have access to a variety of services, meaning all of our residents have access to the following medical services:

Doctor’s Appointments

When it comes to attending a doctor’s appointment, we always encourage our residents to be as independent as possible. They can either choose to attend their GP session alone or be accompanied by a friendly and trusted member of our team.

Opticians Visits

If any of our residents are suffering from any eye-related concerns, they can rest assured that they’ll always have access to an optician while staying with us at Etive House Care Home. Any treatment required might come at an additional cost, so it’s always worth checking before any further payments are made.

Dental Care

We recognise just how important dental care, health and hygiene can be to an individual, especially as we get older. Those who need dental care or a specific oral treatment can book an appointment with a Dentist while staying with us. 


Physiotherapy can be organised for those of our residents who are suffering from joint or muscular pain. Whether you want a one-off session to fix an individual targeted area, or you’d prefer to continue on a specific course for a series of weeks, you can talk with a member of a team to discover what the best course of action is for you. 


Residents who suffer with foot-related concerns can schedule a visit from a Chiropodist to treat any problems they might have. This will incur an extra cost, however, and is not included within the overall fee of staying with us at Etive House Care Home.
