Short Break Unit

We currently provide space and facilities for young adults to use for short breaks, Friday to Sunday. 

We provide the building and facilities, but patients must bring their own carers to meet their needs during their 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.
