Aberlour Options aim to make life easier for families where a child has a learning and/or physical disability.
Based on a quiet street in Prestonpans, they offer a safe, homely environment for a child to come and stay for a short break that gives their families a rest from their caring role. During that break, children enjoy a range of fun activities and experiences with their staff who specialise in taking care of children with disabilities. Their service is very much a ‘home from home’ for the children who stay with us there.
Taking care of a child with a disability can be very demanding. For families with more than one child, it can mean having less time to focus on other children. It can lead to unsettled sleep and less time out to relax and recuperate. Their specialist disability services are designed to take the weight off, and provide a package of support that works for you,
In addition to short-break respite, they can also help families in other ways
- Day-care options
- Specialist play-schemes during school holidays
- After school service during term-time
- Help for families in their own homes
- Help for children at school
- Parenting advice
- Emergency, short notice care
- Activities clubs for young people
