The Short Break and Home Care Service have three homes that give ‘short breaks’ or respite to families who have a child with a learning disability and physical health needs. These breaks are provided from homes called Gwyn Dowr, Layland and Roston.
Short breaks are provided from homes called Gwyn Dowr, Layland and Roston. The Homecare service provides care to your child in your home. To access this service, your child will also be supported by a community or Diana Nurse.

Roston is also in Camborne. It is a large detached bungalow in a quiet residential area close to the shops and local amenities. Our leaflets for parents and children provide more information on what to expect when staying at Roston.

This service provides care to your child in your home. To access this service, your child will also be supported by a community or Diana Nurse. They can make a referral for home care on your behalf. Your Consultant Paediatrician or Social Worker can also refer you to this service.
The level of support received will depend on the needs of your child and your family. We will discuss and agree this with you.
