Respite Care

Queens View Harbour Care Home is proud to offer exceptional standards of Respite Care in Ayrshire, in our purpose built home in Troon. Our respite service allows residents to rest and recover as well as allowing carers and family members to unwind and take a break.

We also offer a range of other care services for older people including Residential Care, Nursing Care and Dementia Care. Our kind and knowledgeable staff are trained to recognise and respond to a wide range of healthcare needs, allowing them to provide individualised care and support 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

What is Respite Care?

Respite is a short-term care alternative that relieves primary carers from their full-time responsibilities of looking after an individual. It can also be used by those who need support with recovery and recuperation after experiencing an illness or surgery. 

Whether it’s to provide extra support after a stay in the hospital, or to allow a carer to receive care or time for themselves, care homes and nursing homes provide respite to support individuals in getting the time and help they need to make life just that little bit easier.

Providing Respite Care in Ayrshire

We want to make sure that every resident feels like they are in their own home with us here at Queens View Harbour. We have worked hard to create a happy and supportive environment where our high levels of care are adapted to each individual’s personal requirements. Our home has been designed so that all residents can receive the medical care and personal care they need, as well as continue their lives which they are supported to do so with our in-house facilities and activities. 

We take a holistic approach to care that addresses the health, wellbeing, and interests of all of our residents, which is a priority shared by all members of staff. We strive to provide optimum comfort and accessibility to our residents while allowing them to preserve as much independence as possible, for as long as possible.

High-Quality Care Remains Our First Priority

Whether it’s our Respite Care, Residential Care, Nursing Care, or Dementia Care, at Queens View Harbour Care Home in Troon, providing high standards of care and supporting our resident’s overall wellbeing is vitally important to us. We are  proudly regulated by the Care Inspectorate, an organisation that inspects health and social care services in Scotland to ensure that they are operating at a high standard. 

Our compassionate and experienced team is dedicated to providing person-centred care that respects privacy and dignity. We regularly monitor care plans which in collaboration with our residents and their loved ones, can be modified over time as and when needs change. All of this takes place in a safe, and homely setting where all our resident’s needs are met.

Medical Services Offered

There are various medical services available to our residents that are not included in the overall charge, but we believe are critical to have on hand in the event of an emergency. We want our residents to feel brand fresh and full of life when they come to live with us at Queens View Harbour and enjoy every day they spend with us. As a result, your stay with us includes access to the following amenities.


One of the first things that deteriorate as we become older is our vision. Regular visits from local opticians are available to ensure that our residents’ eyesight is well cared for.


Our residents can participate in periodic physiotherapy sessions to ensure that their aches and pains are well taken care of. Our joints and muscles can deteriorate as we age, making physiotherapy even more vital.


Residents who require dental care during their stay at Queens View Harbour Care Home have access to a local dentist with whom they can schedule appointments and see as frequently as they choose.

GP Visits

If one of our residents wants to make an appointment with a local physician or GP, they are welcome to do so. If they are okay with it, we can also make an appointment on their behalf. We want to make sure our residents always get the very best treatment.
