Revitalise have adapted their usual holiday service during the COVID-19 crisis by offering their facilities as a place to access vital respite for disabled people who need urgent care-supported respite after a long isolation. Revitalise are welcoming people no longer able to receive the care they need at home or if lockdown has been a struggle, with their mental health, anxiety or feelings of isolation.
Their efforts during the pandemic also include providing their Jubilee Lodge respite centre in Essex to the NHS, welcoming patients from local hospitals who are not suffering from the COVID-19 virus in order to free up beds for patients who are, relieving pressure on the NHS and ensuring the availability of space for more critical patients.
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 centres are fully accessible, with equipment including hoists, profiling beds and airflow mattresses and the teams are comprised of Registered Nurses and Care Assistants.
Anybody worried about whether their care support at home can continue should contact Revitalise. To book a holiday through Charitable Travel, please head to their website.
