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:
- 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
The short breaks room offers everything to a guest that the Harbour House residents are offered. However, as this is considered as a ‘holiday’, we always ensure that you feel ‘at home’ with us and make sure you 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 care 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 Chef will also make contact with you to understand any dietary needs you may have, he will also ensure that we create your favourite meal on one of the days of your stay.
Our short breaks room 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.
