For those looking for short-term accommodation, we offer Short Breaks (Respite Care) at our Greenfields scheme in Bings Heath. The six-bed dormer bungalow with a large garden offers the perfect home-from-home for short stays.

Our Short Breaks provide a calming environment for people to enjoy time away from home in a happy and safe environment. Guests can participate in a wide range of activities and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the ground, whilst parents and families can enjoy a break from their busy caring roles.


At our high quality Short Breaks Scheme, guests are provided with their own bedroom and en-suite facilities. The spacious communal kitchen and lounge are perfect spaces to socialise with friends, or relax and watch a film.

The large and beautiful garden is a perfect space to relax and watch the local wildlife or socialise with friends.


Activities out in the community may include:

  • Day trips to theme parks, the beach, safari parks and local attractions
  • Bowling
  • Cinema
  • Local walks
  • Shopping
  • Swimming

We also provide a range of activities at the house that may include:

  • Pamper nights
  • Movie nights
  • Cooking
  • Garden activities
  • Board games
  • Theme and Taster nights


Residents living with us on a Short Break basis typically stay for all or part of a week (Friday – Monday or Monday – Friday, for example). We are happy to accommodate longer stays if required, please speak to the registered manager Jo Mear at Longbow House on 01743 872250 to discuss these options further.
