St Cyril's Respite Care

St Cyril’s is situated in the grounds of the Countess of Chester Health Park in Chester and can provide respite or short term care in our 4 bedded transitional Dee Unit. This service is available to patients with a neurological condition who would benefit from a short stay in a specialist centre. Direct referrals to the Dee Unit should be considered for those patients who require less intensive nursing care and who are preparing for discharge in their own homes, supported tenancy or supported living.

Step down to the Dee Unit not only provides safe short term intervention but also the opportunity to relieve bed pressures within the acute setting. Referrals to the Dee Unit should be considered for those patients who have perhaps returned home but their families/carers need a break or perhaps they need a short term intervention thereby avoiding a crisis admission or an inappropriate placement.

All patients have a personalised care plans, medicine management led by the MDT in a safe environment and are supported by our fully trained, committed staff.

Please contact the referrals and admissions team on 0808 178 1900 or contact the unit directly on 01244 665330.

Alternatively contact one of our teams if you require any further information or would like to visit the Dee Unit. The team would welcome the opportunity to show you around the Unit and answer any questions you may have.
