As one of our parents says, “ When you are caring for someone with severe learning disabilities , it’s easy to become low and find that you are lacking the inner resources the task demands. So you need to recharge your batteries.” Our respite service at Pooley Heights is designed to replace the care that a carer would normally give enabling them to take a break from their caring role. For the individual staying at Pooley Heights it is an opportunity for a little time away from home. Respite care is often the first step towards a more independent life and Pooley Heights enables individuals to develop their skills, have new experiences and develop friendships in a safe and supportive environment.
Pooley Heights is a bungalow set in a quiet location on the outskirts of Polesworth. The accommodation offers six ground floor places; these are made up of one single bedroom and five en-suite single bedrooms.
We aim to provide services for people with varied levels of ability. The home is wheelchair accessible and we are able to accommodate one wheelchair user at a time. The home is furnished and maintained to a high standard throughout.
The respite service operates 365 days a year. We try to be as flexible as possible regarding bookings; individuals may book a single night, a weekend, a week or maybe longer.
