Respite Care Home Horbury

Whether it’s for a few days, weeks, or months - take a break at Inwood Care Home in Wakefield.


what is respite care?

Respite care is a flexible, short term stay, providing relief to those looking after their loved ones and an often needed change for those receiving care.

Not only do respite residents have access to 24/7 care, but they can also take part in the daily activities. From games nights to exercise classes, a respite stay at one of our homes provides a great source of entertainment and companionship.

when is respite care needed?

If you are going away but you’re concerned about a loved one, then respite care is the perfect solution to provide peace of mind. Respite stays are also an option if you need extra support when recovering from recent surgery or a fall.

A respite stay is a great opportunity for residents to get to know the staff and the environment, should they wish to stay more permanently. If you do wish to stay then our staff are here to help you throughout this transition.

what are the benefits of respite care?

Regardless of whether it’s a short stay or something longer term, respite offers many benefits to both the carer and the person requiring care:

  • Access to professional care - Respite provides high-quality care from professionals who are able to evaluate a person’s care needs and offer advice on how best to care for someone you love.
  • Companionship - Access to the home’s communal areas and activities means there’s always someone to have a chat with - whether that’s other residents or the friendly care home staff.
  • Peace of mind - A huge benefit of respite care is that it offers carers much-needed time off, whilst giving them peace of mind that their loved one is receiving the care they need
  • A change of scene - Respite care provides an often welcome change of scenery, within a safe, welcoming and comfortable environment. With plenty of activities on offer, there’s always something new to try.
