We currently provide space and facilities for young adults to use for short breaks, Friday to Sunday.
The Short Break Unit allows for our young patients to take some time out from their daily routine to have fun and socialise. You'll have access to our self-catering kitchen facilities, the gym and atrium as well as Wifi, TV, DVDs, PlayStation and games to keep you and your guests entertained.
We provide the building and facilities, but patients must bring their own carers to meet their needs during their stay. There is also a sleeping space available for your carers, who will need to remain with you for the duration of your stay.
Patients and their carers are responsible for ensuring all care needs, medication and support is arranged as there will be no access to the hospice clinical team over the weekend, unless there is an emergency. All community arrangements currently in place will remain the same during the short break stay.
Two young adult patients can stay together at the same time if suitable.
