Car­ers de­serve a Christ­mas break

Rutherglen Reformer - - Reformer View -

Spend­ing time with the peo­ple we love and care for is sim­ple but can mean so much to dis­abled peo­ple and car­ers.

Imag­ine not be­ing able to take time away when it is needed the most. While for many of us the prospect of not spend­ing time with our loved ones is un­think­able, for many of the dis­abled peo­ple and car­ers we sup­port it is a re­al­ity. That’s why we want to give as many of our guests as we can the gift of time to spend to­gether this Christ­mas.

I work for Re­vi­talise, a na­tional char­ity that pro­vides respite hol­i­days for dis­abled peo­ple and car­ers. Our respite hol­i­day cen­tres in Es­sex, Southamp­ton and South­port are open to our guests all year round, in­clud­ing over Christ­mas and the New Year.

Our breaks give our guests the chance to take time away from the stresses of ev­ery­day life and to sim­ply spend time do­ing what re­ally mat­ters: mak­ing mem­o­ries with those they love.

We are lucky to have the sup­port of thou­sands of in­cred­i­ble vol­un­teers who gen­er­ously give their time every year, even over the fes­tive hol­i­day, help­ing us to en­sure that our guests have the most mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence as pos­si­ble while with us.
