There are almost seven million carers in the UK – that is one in ten people. Out of the UK’s carers, 42% of carers are men and 58% are women.
Here at Morris Care, we know that sometimes the chance to spend a few days away from caring for a loved one means you can return refreshed and reinvigorated in order to carry on the great work you do. Our respite care homes are designed to provide a helping hand to loved ones and carers alike. Close by in Shropshire and Cheshire, each of our locations is a home away from home.

About Respite Care
We understand that being a full time carer can be a very demanding role (and no one can care for your loved one quite like you). Every minute is different and every day brings its new challenges. But sometimes a break from the norm can be a rewarding and stimulating time for the both of you.
Our respite holiday care and day clubs can offer you or a loved one the opportunity to meet new people, have a change of scenery and even try and learn new skills and activities if you so wish.
We offer a range of tailored respite packages at a respite care home near you, with our friendly and welcoming approach allowing us to meet someone’s needs from Day 1.
Some people choose to just spend some time with us during the day but if they chose to stay with us residents will have their own room which can be personalised with familiar objects and family photographs. Of course friends and family are always welcome to visit anytime and enjoy a catch-up over a cuppa.
Our vast experience in offering respite holiday care coupled with the clinical excellence we deliver every day means we can support stays for those living with dementia, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, reduced mobility and general nursing needs.
We are able to provide respite care in Shropshire and Cheshire, at a number of different homes. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your needs or to arrange for a loved one to experience one of our stays.

Short stays to combat loneliness
Loneliness in the elderly has been featuring in the news for quite a while, but it is particularly poignant during the winter period. Age UK reports that more than 2 million people in England at the age of 75 live alone.
It Pays to Care
We are always eager to reward our staff members who refer a friend to join us. Recruiting in this way means that our new additions not only come with your outstanding recommendation, but we are also able to reward you as existing and valued members of the team. If you’ve got a friend that fits the bill then we will pay you £250 for carers and £500 for RGNs.
