Aspire’s respite care and crisis services are registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) through the Registered Care Homes arrangements.
We deliver the respite service from four buildings across Leeds providing an opportunity for more than 200 people each year to have short stays away from their family home. This gives the people who use the service a different life experience and enables family carers to have a plannd break from their caring role.
Our Crisis Service provides five places for people to stay and be supported by staff in the event that their needs change unexpectedly or an emergency occurs such as their carer falling ill. Having a dedicated emergency service enables us to be responsive to unplanned situatons without the need to cancel someone else’s pre-booked respite stay. People we support in this service usually stay for up to three months. This provides the time necessary to prepare for them to return home or make longer-term alternative arrangements.
