The Respite Unit service is registered as a care home with the Care Inspectorate. It gives short-term respite care to older people, people with mental health conditions and those with learning disabilities. The provider is Inverclyde Council.
The service supports four people at a time from the Inverclyde area. Over the course of a year, it provides care for hundreds of people who need a break from their normal routine at home. These breaks also provide important respite to family carers.
