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 Eva William here at Stanshawes Care Home in Yate, 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 Stanshawes 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.

End of life / palliative care

It's vital that everyone gets the right care and support at this important and sensitive time. Our caring and compassionate teams can give residents and their families all the time, space and help they need during this difficult period.

"A lovely home and great carers the new staff are not so friendly as the older ones. It would be good to talk to mum when they are going by. Some work very hard and care but great activities. The room is a good size."

Jane Sprackman, Daughter of Resident/Service User at Stanshawes Care Home
