Vitalise seeks participants for pilot scheme - 17 September 2014
Vitalise is exploring the possibility of offering respite to those who just need a day's break from their caring duties.
The charity recognises that respite does not always mean an overnight stay and that for those living with a physical disability, a break of just a few hours can make all the difference. Vitalise is therefore looking to launch a new Day Breaks Service at their Southampton centre, Netley Waterside House, and are reaching out to anyone who would benefit from this service to book for the pilot on 17 September.
The day will cost £70 and will provide care, support and a full range of activities and refreshments including lunch. In return, all Vitalise requests is feedback from the attendees and their carers.
“Family carers and those who are cared for can benefit enormously from a little time away from their daily routine” said Gillian McDonald, Business Development Manager and pioneer of the Day Breaks Service at Vitalise. “We want to ensure that we develop this key support service to give carers what they really need.”
