"My family would like to give special praise to the staff for the dedication and spirit in which they carried out the care during Peter’s visit to the Calvert Trust. They made every effort, and succeeded, in getting Peter involved in all the activities."
Our respite services have a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Each person can choose whether to take part in activities, tailored to their interests, or to continue with their usual daily routines. Bookings can be made in advance to meet planned commitments or, subject to availability, at short notice in emergency situations. Visits to our respite services can range from an overnight stay to two full weeks or even longer if required. We can provide respite for people with a variety of needs, including people with physical disabilities and nursing care needs.
We understand that being separated from each other for the first time can be a big step, for both the person staying at the service and their family. Before their first stay each person and their relatives are invited to visit the service so that they can get to know the staff team. Staff will make sure that families are kept fully informed, as required, before, during and after an individual stays with us.
