We offer respite care for your child, providing a break for you and the rest of your family.
Your child can stay with us for a day, a night or a weekend. Knowing your child is in a safe, caring environment allows you to take a well-deserved break, spend time with your other children or just enjoy some time for yourself.
Our Berkshire East service is based in the grounds of Manor Green School in Maidenhead.
Here, we provide respite to children and young people up to age 18 (or 19, if still in a special school) with complex health needs and learning difficulties, and who are on the Children’s Community Nursing caseload.
As well as providing respite care at Manor Green, we can provide respite care within your home and according to individual needs.
Our Berkshire West service is based in Ryeish Green in Reading and provides respite for children with complex health needs and learning difficulties, and who meet the Continuing Healthcare criteria.
We can provide respite care within schools, your home or respite settings.
Our respite units are equipped to support young people with mobility difficulties or specific needs and include:
Please feel free to contact us in advance to discuss your child’s specific needs and we’ll do our best to work with you to resolve any access issues.
Referrals for this service come from the children’s community nursing team only.
Once a referral is accepted, we’ll contact you within seven working days to arrange a home visit for a respite assessment.
Children who receive a package of care from Ryeish Green Children's Respite are referred by the West Berkshire Children’s Continuing Care Panel, which is a team of people from local authorities, education and health. This panel decides whether a child meets the Children’s Continuing Care criteria.
If your child is eligible for Continuing Care, a care package will be put into place and they might be referred to the team at Ryeish Green Children’s Respite.
Children under five who are not eligible for Continuing Care, but have an identified nursing need and a developmental delay, can be referred through the Children’s Community Nursing team at the Royal Berkshire Hospital or through a social worker.
