Good news. I got accepted for respite

good news guys!
I got a letter today saying I was accepted for respite at one of the places I applied to! I had previously applied to this same place and they had refused my application. But my public health nurse made a case and reapplied for me and the decision to give me respite was overturned and now I can avail of it!
This is so wonderful!
This is a place for people with physical disabilities, so those who have visual impairment, are deaf, in wheelchairs, have CP, brain injuries, or other disabilities.
They said they’d be in contact with me within a few days to arrange dates. i think I get four or five nights at a time.
They asked me if I had preferred dates in mind but I couldnt think off the top of my head so I said no but that might change.
I am mega excited! This is such a wonderful opportunity and will be much needed. I think I can get up to 30 days in the year of respite care.
This is a purpose built place for the disabled, they run activities and groups while your on respite, and you can also do things while your on respite with your own PA as well.
This is gonna be amazing!
