Outreach Respite Service – Eilean Siar
Western Isles Respite Care Service works closely with children, young people and their families alongside colleagues in health, education and social work to provide individual packages of care and support to allow parents a break from caring.
The respite service can be provided in two forms:
Activity Respite - this is when the child is taken out in the community by members of staff. This can be after school, weekends or during the school holidays. The sessions can be a few hours or more as agreed with Social Work, parents and staff availability. Some of the activities are - Ardsealeach multi sensory room, Grianan hydrotherapy pool, soft play or swimming at the sports centre, play sessions at Bayhead or play parks, walks in the castle grounds or beaches.
Residential Respite - this is provided as a short stay break in our residential facility in Stornoway.
