Shady Trees is a purpose built bungalow with four bedrooms which are furbished to a high standard and are personalised to the staying guest as far as possible. We currently provide regular respite for 24 guests.
All guests must be 18 years old or over; they also need to a access day service of some description 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
- Sensory therapy
