Shady Trees Nursing Respite Service

Shady Trees provides nursing respite care for adults with learning disabilities and complex needs

Shady Trees is a purpose built bungalow with four bedrooms which we aim to personalise to the staying guest as far as possible.

The Guests

All guests must be 18 years old or over; they also need to be supported on a Monday to Friday basis as Shady Trees is closed during the week from 10.00am – 3.30pm.

Our guests stay on a regular basis and have a number of nights per year which are allocated in advance. We aim to be as flexible as possible with families requests to ensure that we offer a person centred service for everyone.

The service holds family and carers meetings throughout the year to enable the service to continue to develop and provide a service that meets the need of guests and their families.


We provide social/leisure activities at weekends and some evenings.

Our staff team work closely with guests, their families, professionals as well as day services to ensure continuity of care.

Shady Trees has a qualified nurse on duty at all times we are open, as well as a highly motivated and experienced team who ensure guests have a safe, pleasant and relaxing stay. Activities with clients can include (but is not limited to):

  • Meals out
  • Cinema
  • Sensory therapy
  • Walks
  • Pubs
