Centre in Southampton adapted for people to stay safe

- Advertisement -
REVITALISE are known as the people who create holidays for disabled people and their carers, but during the COVID-19 crisis, the team is offering their holiday centre at Revitalise Netley Waterside House in Southampton, as a place to stay safe either short or long term, for disabled people in urgent need of respite due to the restrictions of the lockdown.

Revitalise Netley Waterside House is also supporting the NHS by welcoming non-COVID patients from local hospitals, in order to help free up hospital beds for people with the virus. The team are offering an adapted service rather than their usual holiday experience, welcoming people who are struggling with mental health issues, anxiety or isolation, or those who would be safer at a Revitalise centre.

Jo Morgan, Chief Operating Officer at Revitalise said:

“We are very pleased to be able to offer a sanctuary of care and support people during this uncertain time. Lockdown is challenging for us all, but for disabled people it has left many families without their usual support, providing care 24/7 with no end in sight. They have truly earned a break, and deserve urgent respite to help get them through. Hopefully, this will be one less thing to worry about and we welcome you to stay safe at Revitalise.”

Many disabled people are supported by a family member, or private carer who visits them at home and can very quickly be at risk if that person becomes ill – unable to get support or even basic supplies. Revitalise Netley Waterside House is fully accessible, with equipment including hoists, profiling beds and airflow mattresses. The teams are comprised of Registered Nurses and Care Assistants and they are rated Good by the Care Quality Commission.

Anybody who is worried about whether their care support at home can continue should contact Revitalise, who are able to offer long or short stays with full care support in place. The charity is also offering transportation to those that need it, as well as financial support thanks to a generous donation of £300,000 from the Garfield Weston Foundation ensuring more people can receive their required care support and stay safe.

Revitalise is proud to be able to support the NHS and help fight the crisis at a time like this, but is looking forward to welcoming guests back for more unforgettable holidays once we all emerge from COVID-19.
