Registered Respite Nursing Home
Saint John of God Respite Service in Luddendenfoot offers 24-hour quality individual respite nursing care and support to adults aged 18-64 with physical and/or sensory disabilities, some of whom may also have learning disabilities.
The high specification design of the purpose-built bungalow, which opened in 1996, was based on advice and suggestions not only from statutory bodies, but also from many of the people who now use the service.
Each of the six en-suite bedrooms are furnished and equipped to a high standard. In addition to their private rooms the guests enjoy a range of communal spaces including a pleasant lounge, garden room and large kitchen/dining room, the latter being the focal point of the home. The kitchen facilities include an adjustable height work surface and, should they so wish, guests are most welcome to prepare food themselves. The two bathrooms are fully equipped with the latest equipment and technology in order to safely facilitate assisted bathing.
The Respite Centre also has quieter areas, which are ideally suited for the guests to welcome visitors or spend time in private contemplation and our garden room overlooks the surrounding countryside of the Calder Valley.
All rooms and communal areas throughout the Respite Centre have emergency nurse-call systems installed.
Conveniently situated on the outskirts of Luddendenfoot, Saint John of God Respite Centre is within easy reach of Halifax and its surrounding towns and villages. Guests are offered encouragement and support should they wish to take part in various leisure activities within the home.
