Learning Disability Respite Services
Respite provides a short-term break for both adults with a learning disability and their carers. A range of respite services are available, provided either directly by the Trust or through contracts with voluntary and private providers.
Options are available for both residential (you go somewhere else) and domiciliary (you stay in your own home) respite services.
Examples of domiciliary and activity-based respite include:
- crossroads – care providers supporting people with personal care tasks within their own home
- family placements – spending a short time with another family
- caring breaks – weekly activities such as trips to the cinema or swimming pool
How to access the service
You will need a referral from a community multi-disciplinary team, social worker, nurse or care manager.
