Do you help to care for an adult dependant between the ages of 18 and 30? We have a residential programme just for you.
Hosted at Jubilee House, our centre in Cumbria, we’re inviting you and your loved one to spend a week away from the stresses of daily life for a chance to meet like-minded others and relax in the tranquil surroundings.
As part of the week’s stay, we have six spaces available on a 2-3 day drama course, run by community theatre company Stand Easy Productions*, offering your cared-for dependant the chance to interact with others of a similar age and enjoy a new challenge.
As a group, they’ll work together on anything from a short film to a theatre production. But most importantly, they’ll have fun and try something new.
This will also give you, as their carer, the opportunity to take some time out, safe in the knowledge they’re being cared for.
The week, which will commence on 5 December, will be fully catered, and you’ll be staying in one of our fully-furnished and equipped bungalows, offering you some private space to relax together as a family.
Carrie Pearce, our Welfare Services Lead, says: “I’m really excited about working in partnership with Stand Easy, to be able to offer this special recuperation week. We’ll be combining the opportunity for some much needed time away to rest and recharge with the chance to try out new skills, make new friends and, most importantly, have fun!”
