Respite Care Cumbria

Respite care is an essential care service for people and their families. We have many families who use respite care regularly to provide relief for full-time carers. If you are caring for a loved one in their own home, it is important that you look after yourself, and using respite care can give you a much-needed break. If you are looking for respite services in Cumbria, come and see how we could help you.

Providing A Better Quality Of Life with Respite Care

Not only is this type of care often used on a regular basis, but also on a progressive basis. Many people find the transition into living in a care home easier if they have regularly stayed at the care home on a respite basis. This gradual transition into full-time care can be a far easier move for all involved. Respite can also be crucial in helping people to recover after an operation or illness, enabling them to return to independent living. Whatever you need our caring respite services for we are here for you.

At St Philips Care we give people a sense of place and somewhere they really love to live, making each of our homes fun, friendly and comfortable places to be.

As a group of professional carers, we specialize in the health and well being of people from all walks of life and all ages, and take enormous pride in the high levels of care that we deliver.

Our homes offer a range of support for adult and elderly people whether that is for residential, dementia, mental health or respite care. We pride ourselves on our experienced, highly trained teams which include carers, support staff, and registered nurses and the group offers all of our teams the resources to meet our residents’ daily needs.


St Philips Care focuses each and every care plan on the individual, taking into consideration their personal requirements and tastes.

We take time out to know and understand our residents even before they move in, not only by talking to them but also by including their family and friends during their stay to make sure that we have the best possible plan tailored to each individual.

We consider not only care aspects but also personal interests, social life, working life, and companionships. Special consideration is given to their personal space and bedroom, their favourite meals and dinner choices, understanding, monitoring and developing a personal care plan and generally keeping good channels of communication with family and friends at all times.

Elaine Clousdale


Manager at Kirksanton Care Home

Kirksanton is a wonderful place to work and I am very passionate about the home, residents and staff, no two days are the same and I feel very privileged to be part of the St Philips family.

CQC overall rating


The staff at Alma McFadyen House treated my gran as if she were part of their family. The house always felt so homely. During a pandemic, the staff showed up every day with smiles on their faces and genius ideas to keep the residents entertained, included, and valued.

Granddaughter of a resident at Alma McFayden

Over the past 6 months, Mum has settled well into her new setting. The staff are attentive and always willing to listen and help out where possible and I feel have a genuine care for all of the residents. On a personal level, it is lovely to see a hand on a shoulder or for a member of staff to be holding a resident’s hand offering comfort or reassurance.

Daughter of a resident at Pine Trees

My husband has been in Roxholm on three separate occasions for respite and he thoroughly enjoys his week there. The staff are very welcoming and friendly as soon as you enter the building and the bedrooms are always clean and comfortable. He says that the food is excellent and I can relax whilst he is there as I know that he is being very well cared for.

Wife of resident at Roxholm

Mam initially entered this care home for 4 weeks of respite due to her struggling to live independently. She has always been against ending up in a care home. She has settled in very quickly informing me that the staff are lovely and can’t do enough for her. She feels safe and well cared for. So much so that she has told her social worker that she wishes to stay rather than return home. Due to her own wish and problems living alone, she may get her wish.

Son of resident at Chilton

Finally! A care home that has provided my son with a safe, happy and beautiful home. What a delight this care home is. The staff are well trained, and their obvious job satisfaction is evident, always willing to keep and ensure their first priority are those they care for. The management takes every effort to ensure that a happy environment is essential. Thank you!

Mother of a resident at Highlands

For my first respite stay in a care home I chose Ravendale Hall; I wasn’t disappointed in my choice. The large country home standing in its extensive grounds was what appealed to me. I was warmly welcomed by friendly and happy, supportive carers. Daily entertainment was always on offer if you wanted to take part as many of the residents did. The food was extremely good and catered for a well-balanced diet. You were offered the choice of two lunchtime meals. My room was bright and spacious. Overall I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Ravendale Hall due to happy and helpful staff along with the cleanliness. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.
