Olympus provide a much needed break for a Young Carer

Olympus provide a much needed break for a Young Carer

Olympus Care Services have always worked closely with Northamptonshire Carers to ensure all customers with a need in Northamptonshire are aware of the services we provide.  Olympus recently contacted Northamptonshire Carers with a fantastic opportunity of a week at their disability accessible caravan in Skegness for a family who may have a need for a family break.

Northamptonshire Carers quickly recognised a family in need of a break and sent the following heartfelt email “I have a carer with a 3 year old daughter who was born with hole in heart, missing ribs and toileting issues. The 3 year old daughter is being peg fed and has hearing loss. Her sister is 14 years old and is a young carer registered with us. The family have not had a holiday this year.”

“Northamptonshire Carers would like to say a huge thank you to Olympus Care Services for enabling a carer and her family to have a much needed holiday in their Skegness Caravan. Carers often have to deal with testing situations and put the needs of others above their own. A holiday is a chance to regroup as a family, relax and create life long positive memories. Thanks again to Olympus Care Services for making this happen.”

How wonderful it is to be able to provide a short break to a family who may never have had a family break in 2017!

Olympus wishes the family a wonderful trip and best of luck for the future.
