Aberlour Options – Dundee

Overview

We make life easier for families where a child has a disability by offering a safe and homely environment for a child to come.and stay. This short break means that families have a rest from their caring role, as a result. While staying with us, children enjoy a range of fun activities and experiences with our staff who specialise in taking care of children with disabilities. Our 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. Our 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, we can also help families in other ways. These include
