Respite and Short Stay Care

What Is Respite Care?


Respite care can provide temporary care for loved ones when their normal carers are not available to be there.

Sometimes carers need time off to recuperate and recharge their batteries. They may need a holiday or maybe just need a few days off to do some work to the house.

We can also offer convalescence care is part of recovery after an accident, illness or surgery when regular carers need additional or specialised support.



Even Carers Need a Break?


If you are a carer in need of a break or just need the peace of mind your loved one is being looked after while you are at work or on holiday, then our compassionate and highly experienced team of carers can provide expert respite care and support for your family member. Whatever you require Rowallan is here for you and has been for over 38 years.





Rowallan is like home from home. We have our own spacious areas with light and large dining areas which double up for table-based activities. There is also a separate lounge/TV room, and a secure, airy garden for residents to enjoy.

Our residents can enjoy meeting up for some good old conversation over a nice cup of tea, have a game of cards or be treated to a spot of pampering by our visiting hairdresser.  There is plenty to do at Rowallan that will all keep your loved one busy.

Cooked meals, snacks and drinks are available all day that are prepared fresh in-house by our team of cooks.
