The Crossroads Care Respite Centre in Roebuck, Stevenage provides day services:
- 5 days a week
- Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 10am to 4pm
- Tuesday 9.30am to 2pm
The centre was opened by the then Stevenage MP Barbara Follett in 1996. We continue to provide care and support for up to eight clients a day. The Respite Centre is an example of best practice with regard to dementia care, person centred care and carer support.
We always involve the clients and carers in the planning and running of the Respite Centre. Staff actively seek out and listen to clients to find out about their hobbies and pastimes, hear their thoughts and ideas and plan activities accordingly.
Activities such as quizzes, dominoes, bingo, crafts and reminiscence keeps minds active and stimulated, as well as providing valuable social interaction. New assessments and care plans are in place for each client attending the centre.
Clients choose their own lunches, which are provided through Herts Independent Living Service (at cost). Transport is available on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, provided by Hertfordshire County Council. A nominal charge is applicable for the Respite Centre session.
Many of the activities we provide rely on fundraising so that we can provide treats and outings for the clients and their carers. To find out how you can help support the Respite Centre go to Support Us. For more information call us now on (01462) 455578 or click to Contact Us.
