I got a phone call this morning from a place I applied for respite at. They want to assess me to see if I am suitable for their service.
so that will be happening next tuesday. At lunchtime.
I applied for this particular respite service two years ago!
they are a service that gives respite to disabled people! The place is near a beach and is a big house! Each person who goes there gets their own room, and during the week “you go for a week at a time” you get to go out with staff members and do shopping, go to the beach or other places etc.
Some people have high dependency needs, like they need help showering, with medical stuff, etc. Then others, like me have lower needs, do not need so much help etc.
I hope I’m suitable for their service.
The manager and a nurse will be coming to my home next week to chat to me. He seemed nice enough on the phone anyway.
I’m hopeful. You get four weeks of respite in a year if it all works out.
