We try to plan the children and young adult’s visits at least six months in advance, both day care and respite care, but we try to be as flexible. We have five children’s beds, four are for planned stays and one is kept for unplanned admissions. If family’s have a special occasion in mind the children’s hospice may be able to book a visit one year in advance.
Sometimes when a family needs to come to Jigsaw in an emergency, we have to make some changes to our planned visits. Occasionally we may ask for you to re-arrange your short break with us to ensure we have a room for a child needing emergency care.
