What are the benefits of short-term accommodation?
Staying in a short-term accommodation property such as Riverlink House has many benefits for both Participants and Carers.
Short-term accommodation provides Participants with a home away from home where they can socialise, make friends, get involved with activities and be supported by a group of experienced staff. It also provides Carers with a break from their caring role.
