CEO Máire O’Leary said, “From its very inception in 1961, St. Gabriel’s has been about putting services in place to help make life as positive as possible for children with disabilities. Today, St. Gabriel’s provides the most advanced range of clinical therapies and interventions for over 600 children. St.Gabriels Respite House is another stage of its advancement. It’s a place for children to call their ‘home away from home’, their club, their getaway. It will be their own special space.
“We will have the most experienced nursing and health-care staff in place to give the type of specialist care these children need, a level of care normally only provided by their parents or an acute hospital. We know the huge demands and stresses on parents who care for their children 24/7. However, from speaking to these parents, the families want to care for their own child in their own home but need a little support from time-to-time to help them cope and recharge
With over 100 children in the mid-west region with physical disabilities and complex medical conditions, their families are desperate for a respite facility. Providing regular overnight respite breaks is a vital form of intervention which offers the best possible means of support to these parents and families. Your support can help make the dream a reality.
