Respite Services Night Out a Great Success

Caring full-time for a family member is demanding, so our Respite Services are designed to give carers a well-deserved break. But they are also about ensuring the people you care for have a great time with our respite care.

Our recent respite group event saw 6 service users enjoy a Robbie Williams & George Michael Tribute Night at the Everglades Hotel, in Derry. A big thank you to carers Luisa Carlin, Sheree Campbell, Mandy Robinson and our bus driver Gordon Peoples, who looked after everyone so well and made sure they had a great time.

These kinds of Respite Services events are organised for clients under our physical disability respite scheme. This scheme is available to those with physical disability needs between the ages of 18-65. The scheme offers a range of opportunities for services users including:

• respite in their own home
• social outings
• short breaks away
• group events
