Everyone needs some time off once in a while. Disabled people can take a short break, also known as respite care, at our residential home, The Vines, while carers take some time off.
Our residential homes are fully accessible, well-equipped and provide a range of activities. Individuals can socialise with others, enjoy trips out or simply relax.
Is it for you?
Our residential short breaks are for disabled adults with any condition or impairment. These include dysphagia, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, autism, physical impairments and learning difficulties. We also support disabled adults with clinical needs such as tracheostomy, gastrostomy, suction, oxygen and medication administration.
We will talk with you to find out what’s important and what’s support is needed. We’ll answer any questions you might have. And together, we’ll develop a personal plan around what you want to do, focusing on what you’d like to achieve from your short break.
Your support staff
We’ll find support staff who the disabled individual likes and you’ll get on with.
Supporting disabled people for the past 60 years, we know just how much selecting friendly and caring staff matters. We train our staff thoroughly to provide safe and quality support.
You can pay using your direct payments, personal budget, private income or through the local authority.
Book us for an overnight, weekend stay or a longer break – we’re very flexible.
