Residential Respite Services
Most of our centres provide respite rooms or apartments which are available to people who normally live in the community or who get services from other agencies. Respite is also used internally within Cheshire services to provide short breaks to service users. Typically, people avail of breaks of 1 – 2 weeks duration. Emergency or crisis respite is also provided, subject to accommodation being available.
Based on our positive experience over recent years with a dedicated respite service on the grounds of Ardeen Cheshire Home, this type of dedicated service is likely to be our preferred model of respite provision for the future.
