“Short Breaks are run on the principles of autonomy, independence and social experience"

Hollybank Trust offers flexible short breaks/respite care to both Children and Adults. These can be as short as 24 hours but can be much longer. Most of our residents stay with us once a month but some come more regularly.

The length of stay we can offer is totally flexible and can be tailored to specific needs, from short daytime stays to routine overnight scheduled stays and emergency placements. We offer this service throughout the year including weekends and holidays, depending on availability. Our multi-disciplinary team of care professionals will assess your child and develop their support plan, which will be carried out by our social care staff.

Children’s Short Breaks

We have seven spacious rooms in our homely unit, Orchard Court, available for short breaks for children. These are single occupancy rooms all with tracking hoists, and en-suite facilities. There is a high level of shared facilities with the other children. All our bathrooms are also all fully equipped with hoists and feature specialist bathing equipment. Our Housekeeper cooks nutritious meals within the unit's kitchen to meet individual's dietary requirements.

Staff are also trained to give gastostomy care.

Adults Short Breaks

We offer physical, social and emotional support and care and also give placements for those with higher medical need in Willow Court, our care home with nursing support.

Adults stay with us in individual en-suite rooms and have person-centred care. They take part in a diverse range of activities including hydrotherapy, sensory baking, trips out and socialising with other residents here at Hollybank Trust.
