Respite and day support

Wesleyhaven’s respite and day support care options provide short term support in times of need, plus an opportunity to sample our hospitality.

Respite and Day Support

Respite care provides temporary accommodation in times of emergency, convalescence or unforeseen events. It  can also be accessed  for a pre-arranged needs such when you are recovering from an operation or  on a more regular basis as, (say) when your usual caregivers are not available.

Day support care options allow you to participate in Wesleyhaven’s wide ranging  daily activity programme for up to 6 hours per week, ( including lunch and morning and afternoon teas), if you have been allocated ‘day support’ by your NASC agency.

Both options give you an ideal chance to get to know the Wesleyhaven hospitality.

“Thank you very much for making my stay recently very enjoyable, you all do such a great job. Many Thanks – From a resident who received respite care at Wesleyhaven”.


” [My] husband can’t wait for his respite visits to come around as he enjoys its so much”.

"My husband Nick needed high level hospital care at short notice while I underwent a hip replacement operation and Wesleyhaven were able to provide this. Twice the staff also brought Nick to visit me in hospital which we really appreciated. Nick enjoyed the company of the carers, entertainment, ‘blokes’ club and happy hour whilst at Wesleyhaven. I have the utmost admiration for all at Wesleyhaven who provided such loving care for Nick".
