Respite Questionnaire for Carers of Adults with Learning Disabilities
RBK Adult Social Care would like feedback from families/ carers and clients regarding Respite (Short Break) services for Adults with Learning Disabilities.
Respite (Short breaks) are for people with learning disabilities to spend time away from their carers. Respite Breaks benefit a whole range of people including members of the family who get a ‘break’ from their caring responsibilities, as well as the person with a learning disability themselves, who may meet up with their friends, sometimes learn new skills, or try out new experiences.
Why are we asking you to fill in this questionnaire?
We would like to know what works well and what could be improved in order to make sure that the service we are providing meets everyone’s needs. People have told us that Respite Breaks help support families to carry on living together for longer. If the respite currently provided isn’t working for everyone, we would like to know why.
This questionnaire is anonymous unless you want to tell us who you are. We do ask if you want to leave your details at the end of the questionnaire to be involved in further engagement events around Respite (short breaks) and to hear feedback on the results of our questionnaire.
What are we hoping to find out?
We want to know how to provide adult respite services in the future, which best support the service user, carer and family.
Your feedback will help us to target our limited resources where they are needed most.
Deadline for Questionnaire: 29/06/2018
