Different choices, activities and experiences throughout the day are chosen by, for and with the individual in mind.

Motivations Every Sensation has a successful day service for adults with Physical, Profound, Complexed Health needs and Learning Disabilities, including associated conditions such as Sensory Impairments and Autism for the last 8 years.
It is through this and the request from parents to offer an alternative from having to leave their homes unnecessarily to offer respite to parents/carers ensuring that the needs of the individuals is in their best interest.
Currently the options for service users is respite care in residential facilities if parents/carers are unable to offer support for a time period due to holidays, sickness, rest breaks etc. This means that individuals are having to leave their own homes.
Currently, in Nottinghamshire 7,547 people are receiving adult social care and support services to help them to remain independent at home. This can cause problems with getting bookings for respite due to availability and/or the complexed needs of the individual and staff that are trained to provide the support and care that they need.
One of the recommendations for consideration by commissioners in Nottinghamshire is to ensure that future service development and provision embrace the views of people with learning disabilities and their carer’s. We aim to achieve this.
We are now able to provide twenty-four-hour respite services to adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, and complex needs. This new service has a Registered Manager and is registered with CQC.
