Respite care at The New Deanery residential care home

As a carer you might need a break for your own well-being, to recharge your batteries on a holiday or family event, which means you can’t provide the care you normally would to someone. We provide respite care in Essex at our residential care home in Braintree.

How our respite care works

At The New Deanery residential care home in Braintree we support full time carers with temporary care packages which offer:

  • An all-inclusive residential respite package for people who fund their own care*
  • Full access to all amenities and services such as 24 hour care delivered by our expert team
  • A full and varied activities programme including cinema, hairdresser, high quality catering adapted to meet individual requirements, and much more
  • Spacious and well-appointed private rooms with en-suite toilet and shower
  • Complete flexibility in terms of length of stay, subject to availability
  • Relaxation in a calming environment ensuring peace of mind for our residents and their families, whatever the duration of their stay
