Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Francaise Miles here at Bishopsmead Lodge Care Home in Bristol, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Nursing care

Someone may need nursing care if they have a certain physical condition or difficulties. This might include those with long-term conditions, those who need rehabilitation, or those with physical disabilities.

Respite care

Respite care, or short-stay care, means someone can stay at Bishopsmead Lodge Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

"I am writing to say how excellent the care and attention is at the home. The staff are all very pleasant and helpful, and the atmosphere at the home is excellent."

James Higgins, Husband of Resident/Service User at Bishopsmead Lodge Care Home
