Do all care homes offer respite care?

Not all rest homes offer formal respite care. The availability of respite care is dependent on whether a rest home or other residential care facility (such as a hospital) has an available bed.

It also may depend on whether a facility has enough trained staff on site to cater to the needs of the person who needs cared for.
