The Les Amis Respite Service plays a crucial role in the lives of the individuals, families and carers who benefit from it. The Respite Service gives parents and carers of islanders with a learning disability time for themselves, allowing them to recharge their batteries whilst a son, daughter or family member spends time away from home in a safe and welcoming environment.
Respite care affords the service users who access it the opportunity to socialise, learn valuable life skills and get involved in a variety of community activities of their choice.
The Les Amis Respite Service provides one of the two high dependency respite beds on the island that can cater for the needs of individuals with both a learning and a physical disability.
Overseen by the Registered Manager of Mourant Lodge, who in turn oversees a small group of support staff.
