A new respite care unit in Chorley will be officially launched this month.
The Meadows – at the Brothers of Charity’s Lisieux Hall in Whittle-le-Woods – will let adults with profound and complex disabilities to attend and enjoy a short break.
This could be relaxing at the unit or using their specialist support staff to enable them to get out and about. It also allows their main carers to take some much needed time for themselves.
An open day has been organised for the official launch by Chorley MP Lindsay Hoyle at 1pm on Friday, October 25, which will include accessible carriage riding, cake decorating and dance troop.
Specialist support team manager Sandra Walton said; “My vision for The Meadows is to provide a personalised and responsive service to enable everyone to get the most out of their holiday, whether they be accessing the service as part of a one-off family break, or as a regular part of their support plan.
“Our highly skilled staff team, including an on site physiotherapist, are able to support people to benefit from what the surrounding area has to offer.
“This could be anything from lunch in a local pub, a visit to Blackpool or the Lake District, carriage driving, to swimming at the nearby leisure centre or a dip in our on site Jacuzzi. We’ll do everything we can to make sure you have a break to remember.”
