Short Breaks & Respite Care Services To Combat Loneliness This Winter

Twyford House in Cheshire is helping individuals to combat loneliness and isolation this winter through short breaks and respite care services.

Our brand new care home, located on Richard Woodcock Way in Alsager, features high-quality facilities including a Terrace Bar, ensuite bedrooms, activity rooms, cinema room and its own beauty clinic. The home also offers a varied program of activities for residents, with a minimum of six offered to residents every day including themed evenings, crafts and gentle exercises.

Stay Connected This Winter

In response to the current situation, we are keen to let our local community, and anyone who may be struggling with living alone at the moment, know that we are open for short breaks and respite care throughout the season.

Operations Director for Lovett Care, Debbie Baker, comments: “Shorter days and more time spend indoors over winter can leave some people feeling lonely and disconnected. The new restrictions may intensify these feelings of loneliness and make meaningful human contact even more difficult, especially with the arrival of colder weather. Respite care and short breaks at Twyford House aim to alleviate this by providing a safe haven where residents can relax, enjoy daily activities and connect with one another.”

At Twyford House, our mission is to create an inclusive and vibrant community. We understand that this time of year can be very difficult for some. What’s more, family members and loved ones may be concerned about the safety of those living alone who aren’t getting the support and companionship they need due to the ongoing situation. For that reason, our short breaks and respite care services are on hand to provide all of these things, as well as an active community, in safe, elegant surroundings.

COVID Safe Admissions

In order to protect residents and staff at Twyford House, a number of COVID secure processes are in place to help welcome new residents.

New residents at the care home in Alsager will be required to undergo a period of isolation, with care being provided in bedrooms in line with PHE guidance. During this time, staff are on hand 24/7 to tend to the physiological and psychological needs of new residents, before their transition into the wider Twyford House community.

Following this, new residents will have full access to all of the fantastic facilities at Twyford House, as well as the company and companionship of current residents.

Talk To Us About Respite Care This Winter

If you are concerned about spending more time alone this winter, or feel your family member or loved one may benefit from more support for a short spell, contact us and speak to our General Manager about short breaks at Twyford House. We also encourage any interested parties to enjoy our virtual tour and interactive e-brochure, which can be found on our website, to learn more about the fantastic facilities offered to residents.
