Residential Respite

APASENTH Lodge is registered with the Care Quality Commission to provide Respite, Permanent, Long & Short Term Care accommodation for up to ten adults with learning disabilities.

We can provide opportunities for people with learning disabilities to spend time in small residential respite units. This allows carers to have a break from their caring responsibilities and at the same time the person with learning disabilities can experience time away from the family setting, making new friends and helping to prepare for a time when they will move on in the future.

The person would normally stay in our respite unit for a week or a fortnight. This might be a ‘one off’ whilst the carer goes on holiday or it might be a regular ‘rotating’ respite that is set up.

APASENTH Lodge is a large Victorian semi-detached house in the residential area of South Woodford with a large single storey rear extension. The property is within walking distance of a number of amenities. Shops, restaurants, public spaces including forest land, ponds and a boating lake and the two local central line underground stations are within ten minutes walking distance. The local cinema and public library are within fifteen minutes walking distance.
