Cheshire Care currently has 2 properties in Oldbury for the short term support and accommodation for respite individuals. Respite properties are run along the same lines as supported living with similar facilities and services available. The support is designed to alleviate stress and provide a temporary relief for carers caring for long term family members at home.
It covers such situations as holiday breaks for carers, weekend care, family “break/rest” and we also have an emergency response in place for any arising situations.
We currently have 8 individuals using our respite services, again the service is managed by ourselves with run by Kady Charles and team leader Katie Chidler.
Respite support is provided throughout the year with a maximum of three individuals in respite together at any one time. Staff support individuals with their meal preparation, accessing the community, developing skills, housework (encouraged), medication administration, personal care, health and well being, accessing activities, social inclusion and shopping to name but a few!
We also try to accommodate where possible for emergency respite support dependent on respite availability and staffing
