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.

March at Morris Care
As we look forward to spring, March brings some exciting social activities and clubs for our residents to enjoy.
How to keep warm in winter
Just as we thought spring was approaching, temperatures across Shropshire and Cheshire are set to plummet this weekend and over the course of next week, with temperatures reaching as low as -8°C in the middle of the day. A cold snap referred to as “beast from the east” is set to plunge temperatures in the UK below freezing as cold air makes its way over from Siberia.
Bilingualism and Dementia
Various studies state that learning a second language is much easier when you are younger and in the “critical period”, when your brain is more absorbent. This could be the reason why many of us shy away from taking on the challenge of learning another language in our later years, because we think it will be too hard or too time consuming.
