What is the purpose of Shalom?
Shalom Respite Care Centre is primarily for those who need professional nursing care while being surrounded by a healthy, country-side setting.
What is “respite care”?
Respite care is a specialised service in which a disabled person is cared for while the caregiver and/or family take a break in order to be able to recharge their batteries and continue with the demanding task of care giving. This is vital as the stress of constant caring for a disabled person is extremely draining and physically demanding.
How is Shalom Respite Care Centre managed?
It is managed by a committee of professional people who are parents and friends of Shalom. The staff is headed up by a qualified nursing sister and supported by a wonderful team of dedicated trained staff who are fully experienced in this particular aspect of care for the physically and intellectually disabled.
