Where there are vacancies, homes are able to provide respite placements. Clients who wish to pursue such placement will receive a preliminary assessment to ensure that their needs can be successfully met and that they can be effectively accommodated within the group of clients with whom they will share communal area's.

Clients will be allocated their own Key Worker and receive an individual care plan for the respite period. Prospective purchasers of this service should check well ahead if this service is likely to be available for the period they are considering.
