If you think you, or the person you are caring for, would like to use our short breaks service, please contact our office and ask for an assessment for a short break.
You will are invited to visit Lilliput House with your family, or a person of your choice, to have a look around, chat to staff and ask any questions that may concern you.
Whilst you are staying with the short break service you will be able to make your own choices and we are always interested to hear your ideas. Some negotiation and compromise may have to be made when sharing facilities with other service users.
Arrangements are in place with local services should you require and healthcare during your stay.
It is very important that if you take medication you bring it with you to the short breaks service.
Staff are experienced in handling medication. If you normally look after your own then you can continue to do so. There is a locked facility in your bedroom for this purpose. No unauthorised drugs or substances can be taken into our home.
Lilliput House is staffed 24 hours a day, so help is always available if needed, at any time - you just need to ask.
Although at Lilliput House we do not offer nursing care we can arrange a variety of care services including dentist, Chiropodist, Optician, District nurse and other health care professionals to visit you at any time.
