Olympus Care Services offers short residential breaks for adults with disabilities aged between 16 and 65 years of age.
A short break is a positive opportunity to make new friends, try new things and, in some circumstances, start to prepare for greater independence.
Short breaks also provide carers and family members with time for themselves and respite from caring.
Breaks Closer To Home
We can support Younger adults from across Northamptonshire in either Pine Lodge in Corby or Eleanor Lodge in Northampton. Both offer welcoming and practical accommodation where customers are encouraged to be as independent as possible whilst enjoying a supportive, friendly environment where they can form new friendships and try out new things.
All bedrooms are single rooms with fully accessible communal bathrooms and shared lounge and kitchen areas for residents to prepare snacks and refreshments. Customers are welcome to bring their own personal belongings to make themselves feel at home.
Caravan Holiday In Skegness
Customers may choose to stay at home, enjoy the local community or travel a little further to the seaside and stay in our specially adapted caravan in Skegness.
A Welcoming Family Environment
We can also organise short breaks through our Shared Lives scheme where customers are welcomed into home environments and live alongside other members of a family. Our Shared Lives carers are fully assessed, approved and trained to deliver focused support to customers; this support is monitored by our Shared Lives officers.
Yurts In Northamptonshire
For people who would like to try something a little different, we also organise overnight stays in the Yurt village at Grendon Hall in Northamptonshire between May and October. These comfortable, circular, tent-link dwellings provide a very special and inspiring place to spend a relaxing break. Our customers can also choose to take part in some fun outdoor pursuits during their stay, such as orienteering, archery, and much more.
Customers who use our service pay for their short break either through an individual budget or through a means tested contribution.
Following a short break enquiry, a member of Olympus Care Services’ short breaks team will contact the enquirer for further information about the customer’s needs, medication and short break requirements. We will also confirm emergency contact information.
