Day respite (or ‘day stays’) are available to children and young people up to the age of 25 and can be requested in advance using the form below. We are often able to facilitate day stays at short notice, so if you need last-minute day respite, please ring the hospice on 01702 552 200
If your child or young person has not stayed at Little Havens before, we ask parents/carers to stay for the first visit to help us get to know your child. Parents or carers are not required to stay if your children or young person has previously had a stay. If a parent or carer would like to stay for the day to enjoy our facilities, we will try to allocate you a parent bedroom upstairs which gives you space to relax while we care for your child or young person. You may choose to spend the time relaxing in your room, having a bath, enjoying time in our gardens, or going out for the day knowing your child is having fun being cared for. Day stays also are an opportunity for you and your child or young person to build relationships with the Care Team.
When you complete the form please press submit and do not refresh the page. You should get an email to confirm your request has been submitted. If you have any problems completing this form please contact us.
If you need support completing online forms and bookings please call the Care Team on 01702 552 200.
The Little Havens Admin Team will contact you to confirm your stay if we are able to offer you respite at this time.
As our priority is supporting children and young people who need end of life care, in the event of an emergency we may need to cancel a respite stay. We will always endeavour to minimise any cancellations in the first instance, however when necessary we will notify you as soon as reasonably possible.
