Respite care in Hertfordshire area

Morning all,

I was wondering if anyone had any advice or experience of respite care in the Hertfordshire area? Long story short, my mum is a carer for my dad who has Parkinson’s. She desperately needs a break and a holiday so I am trying to arrange some respite care. It needs to be in the Hertfordshire area so friends and family can visit and I would much rather have recommendations from people who have used different facilities. I am less interested in cost but more focused on quality of care and enjoyment/stimulation for my Dad and peace of my mind for my mum to relax.

Any advice or suggestions would be hugely appreciated.

Many thanks
