Special Respite Stay Offer

A short-term respite stay enables carers to take a break from their caring role, recharge and refresh.

For the older person, it can be a welcome change too.

You may be recovering from a hospital procedure and need extra care and support before returning home.

Our special respite stay package is now available at Manor Lakes Community, providing a two-week stay for the cost of just one.
