Temporary plans for Guernsey adult respite care

Post by GD on Sun 30 Dec 2012, 8:44 pm

There are temporary plans to provide respite care for adults in Guernsey.

It was announced in September that the current centre, the Croft, would only be offering respite care to under 18s from 1 January.

Health and Social Services said it would continue to be used for people in their early 20s.

But older adults with disabilities will stay at the King Edward VII hospital in a specially-converted ward, until a more permanent solution can be found.

Mark Cooke, chief officer of Heath and Social Services, said the department would do all it could to ensure services are available for people.

He said: "It may not be that we use the Croft for respite care for adults, but if we absolutely need to we'll make that provision.

"We are not going to shut off services blindly without taking into account people's needs and we will make sure it is handled sensitively.

"We will work with service users to make sure that services are provided during the interim period."

......THE BOSS......

"Always be yourself because the people who mind don't matter, and the people who matter don't mind"

I do hope they will give a good proper HOME to all these people who need it.they do not need a clinical place but a loving home so they can continue to live like they do at their homes and give their carers a much needed rest .
