Short Breaks and Respite
The Oxfordshire Children's Respite Nursing Team is a team of nurses working with the Children’s Community Nurses.
They offer respite care in the home for children with complex healthcare needs. Children must live in Oxfordshire to be eligible to receive care.
The service is available from Monday to Friday, 9.00am to 5.00pm. However, they try to be as flexible as possible and can consider occasional weekday evenings. They may be able to increase respite if acute illness or crisis occurs. Sessions are normally three hours in duration, weekly or fortnighly.
