Short breaks

We provide a range of high-quality respite care and short break options for people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs, as well as the elderly, infirm and people with dementia.

Our short breaks in Suffolk offer the opportunity to enjoy a break from routine and experience a range of activities and skills whilst offering family carers a valuable break from their caring responsibilities with the reassurance that their relative is in safe hands and having a great time.

Personalised Care

Our short break respite accommodations offer a warm welcome and enjoyable stay based on your own personal preferences. The safe, supported environment enables customers to make their own choices about their private room, what they want to do and activities they would like to take part in. It is fantastic opportunity to develop more independent learning skills and enjoy new experiences. 

All accommodations are registered with the Quality Care Commission and are extremely well-equipped with the latest technology and facilities. Our lounge and dining areas are comfortable and stylish and allow lots of social opportunities as well as the chance to get away from it all in the relaxing and tranquil gardens.
