Values IconsDonate to Les Amis

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 the only two high dependency respite beds on the island that can cater for the needs of individuals with both a learning and a physical disability.

Les Amis’ Operations Manager oversees the Registered Manager of the two adult respite units, Maison Allo and Mourant Lodge, who in turn oversee over 20 support staff.

Maison Allo & Mourant Lodge

Maison Allo in St Saviour is situated in a charming cul-de-sac and features 4 bedrooms; one of which offers disabled access and a bathroom with full facilities as well as a large garden and outdoor area.

Mourant Lodge is a purpose built respite facility in Trinity that opened in March 2014 and it also has a disabled access bedroom with full wet-room facilities.

Both properties have been fitted with adjustable worktops and kitchen sinks along with cookers that have been specifically selected to ensure anyone with a physical disability can use the appliances. This is to encourage skills development and independence.

Both properties cater for age groups of 18 and above and can provide overnight stays for up to four adults per night.

The Respite Service operates seven days a week, fifty two weeks of the year.
