Archway Care & Support
Our residential respite services located across Aberdeen and Dyce, provide a safe, homely environment for children and adults with learning disabilities to come to stay which also gives their families a break from their caring role. Children and adults do not come into respite at the same time.
We offer a range of short breaks across our respite services and these are usually arranged on a regular or occasional basis throughout the year based on individual’s respite allocations or budget. The respite breaks Archway can provide include:
• A weekend break - Friday to Monday
• A midweek break – Monday to Friday
• An annual holiday break
• A variety of the above
Respite breaks are usually planned on a 6-monthly basis with dates being offered in 6 monthly blocks from 1st April to the end of September and 1st October to the end of March. Compatibility with other respite users is always assessed.
Emergency Respite: at Archway all of our respite services have an allocated “emergency bed”. This bed may be occupied by another respite user, however, they will have been informed that this bed is the allocated “emergency bed” and that it may be required for emergencies. In these circumstances service users and their families must be prepared for the bed to be vacated or the respite visit cancelled if an emergency occurs. It is Archway’s policy that emergency respite is only provided to Archway service users, however, under exceptional circumstances and at the discretion of a manager it may be possible to accommodate someone who is not currently in receipt of Archway services.
