Respite Care

Our respite care is offered in a flexible and accommodating manner that provides opportunities for families to have a rest or spend quality time doing things that are important to them such as activities with their other children.

A resource allocation system allows fair provision of respite to families depending on need. We also offer an SOS service which provides extra respite care for any family in crisis, such as illness of another sibling or family member. We are committed to doing everything possible to meet any such emergency, but this depends on immediate staff availability

We have fun every day in Rebecca House and offer a wide range of activities and facilities including:

  • Arts & crafts
  • Day trips
  • A special interactive projector called the ‘Magic Carpet’ 
  • The ‘Eye Gaze’ which supports children to use a computer by navigating the screen with their eyes
  • Electronic games including iPads, Wii, Nintendo Switches and a PlayStation 3
  • Specially adapted outdoor playground and gardens
  • The Dream Room - a sensory room that includes colourful lights, bubble tubes, a heated water bed to help the children relax and a film projector.

 

Sibling and Family support

Approximately 3 times a year we have a sibling day. This may involve a sibling sleepover at Rebecca House or a day out; this time will give siblings a chance to talk to staff, be with other children who may be in a similar situation and have fun.

We also hold parent evenings up to 3 times a year. The nights are usually themed and are held in Rebecca House. This time gives parents an opportunity to relax and chat with other families.

 

Do you need our support?

If you have a child living with a limiting or life threatening condition who needs support, we can help. Call Rebecca House on +44 (0)1624 647405 or email admin@hospice.org.im for more information.
