We offer short-term respite care in a number of our services to enable residents, carers and families to take a break or have a change of scenery when they need it. Care can be for as little as one hour, or for longer term stays. We can plan well in advance but also have the flexibility and expertise to act quickly and efficiently if care is required in an emergency.
The care is as individual as the person we support, and can include 24 hour staffing, wheelchair accessible bedrooms, daily activities, freshly prepared menus and help with personal care.
Flexible support at home
With an increasing number of people now being able to access Individual Budgets, we have developed a new type of respite service to support people with a learning disability who live at home. One of our team can provide overnight support within familiar surroundings, whilst full time carers or families can go out for the night or away for a few days.
