Respite Care

In 2009 a further extension was added to Yoakley House to create 5 new en-suite rooms. These provide short term care of up to 6 weeks for those who normally manage at home but need assistance in the short term. This may be because they are rehabilitating after a fall, a hospital stay or an illness, or so that family members of friends who normally care for them can take a break.

The Charity achieves the highest standards of care, with regular good rating from the Care Quality Commission.

We are very grateful to the Rotary Club of Thanet who generously funded the purchase of new equipment including 2 hoists for our respite rooms.

The respite rooms were built in response to a recognised need in the local community, which has a percentage of elderly people in its population. They have proved a very popular service, with many residents returning for a second or third stay.

If an older person you know would benefit from respite care, please contact us.
