Harbour House recognises that many people and their families or carers require a short break from time to time.

We are able to offer support and care for the following:

  • rehabilitation
  • a break from ‘routine’
  • carer holiday or illness
  • a care home ‘taster’
  • a mini break or holiday
  • a base for visits to families or friends
  • recovery from illness or hospital admission

Our respite rooms offer everything to a guest that the Harbour House residents are offered. Stays with us may be considered a ‘holiday’ but we will always ensure that guests feel ‘at home’ with us and make sure guests are supported to feel included and part of the community.

We always suggest that you come and visit us and have a look around the home if you are considering a short break.

Before you come to stay at Harbour House, a member of the team will come and visit you in your home and spend time getting to know you and any special requirements you may have. This is part of our assessment process to make sure that we can meet all of your needs. We will also encourage you to bring some familiar items from your home to make your stay as pleasurable as possible.

Our kitchen team will also make contact with you to understand any dietary needs you may have.

Our short breaks rooms gets filled very quickly throughout the year and we would encourage you to give us plenty of notice. If you would like to request a short break please use our contact form.
