Glen Caring respite services day out to ‘Country Comes to the City’

Giving carers a break with respite services is part of what we do at Glen Caring.  Respite services help those caring for a family member at home but they can also offer a great day out for our clients.

We pull out all the stops to make days out an enjoyable experience for these clients, and we weren’t disappointed on our recent respite services day out to the Country Comes to the City event at Ebrington Square, Derry~Londonderry.

It was a wonderful day which was enjoyed by everyone, and it was great to see the sun shining.

We’d like to say a big Thank You to our carers, who made sure everyone was having a great time. They were Luisa Carlin, Stephen Gamble, Mandy Robinson, Rachel McAlpine, Michaela Kee, Joanne Gamble and Julie Hagan.

Our successful respite service is designed to allow service users to enjoy a caring and fun experience while also providing families with the support they need to take a much deserved break. The service includes a suitable minibus for the transport of service users offering day trips for example shopping, cinema, library, concerts – along with weekend breaks. Some of our successful weekend breaks included trips to Strangford-Bay-Lodge, Portstewart and Linsnaskea Share Centre.
