Long term care is available for all people of age 65+ who each have a comfortable single room.
We offer freshly cooked Polish food, Polish – speaking care staff and Polish language TV.
We have regular concerts and other entertainments for residents, and there is a Mass celebrated in Polish each week.
We are not licenced for nursing care, but great efforts are made to maintain longer-term residents in our home whenever possible as we know that change can be detrimental to frail people
Respite Care is a particular specialism of Kolbe House. We can usually offer short-term care, say for periods of one or more weeks. Respite residents are welcome to join in with all the activities held in the house. Respite care is sometimes a way for a potential long-term resident to sample our life and to discover the quality of our care before long-term care becomes necessary.
We charge a weekly fee for respite care based on the size of room available; details of our charges can be obtained from the Manager.
