I’m so excited! I just got a call about respite! The place I’ll be going to for respite is called abode, its a specialised place for people with physical disabilities. So there is a lot of wheelchair users, people who are blind, people with traumatic brain injury, or people who have had a stroke or other disabilities. The woman who called me her name was elaine. And she offered me a respite break from tuesday 2nd may until friday 5th of may, 3 days for the first break, just to test out if I like the place or not. She said if I do like the place that then we could talk about having longer breaks in the future. I’m so thrilled. Nitro can even come with me and she told me she is going to give me a self contained apartment, to give me more space with the dog. But the best thing is next thursday 20th april I’m going to tour the place. And meet elaine to ask questions and stuff. Kristen is going to bring me to do that. I actually will so need this break in early may, especially to deal with the easter hang over and the aftermath of all that. I’m very happy. At the respite place they have daily activities, and there is 24 hour support from staff. Elaine told me that if I needed help I can ask staff, and I’ll have a buzzer I can ring if I need them to come to my apartment, the apartments are in the main building. So exciting isnt it? I’m beyond excited here! This is just what I’ve been waiting for!
