Respite Care at Edgewood Road

The Respite Care Unit at Edgewood Road provides respite nursing care for children aged five to 18 with chronic illness or disability. In addition, we provide day care for pre-school children with similar needs. It is the only NHS unit in Birmingham which caters for children with health needs.

The unit opens five days a week and has six beds. The unit aims to provide a homely, safe environment and a range of activities for children with support and expertise on hand from our qualified Children’s Nurses and Nursing Assistants.

We are currently working with Social Care and Health to develop closer working and to improve assessment and provision for respite care for children with additional health needs.
