“The Respite Centre has become like a second home for me.” Mdm Ho, Family Caregiver.
ABLE’s Respite services aim to support the critical role of family caregivers through a family-centric approach. Both Centre-based and Home-based respite services are offered as we acknowledge that the task of care giving is a demanding one. Our team of a nurse and healthcare assistant, and programme staff are on hand to provide professional care services and various variety
The Centre-Based Respite Service aims to provide daily respite for Caregivers through daily programmes conducted for their Care Recipients. Programmes includes Music Therapy, Art Therapy, Arts & Craft and Befriending programme, events and outings.

Flicker – but the flame burns brightly!
Gig date: 18th Feb 2018
Venue: Bald Faced Stag, Sydney
Country of origin: Western Sydney, Sydney, Australia
Members: Jake, Heath, Matt and Ethan
Support or headline: Support for Stateside (Brisbane)
Good crowd/bad crowd: The crowd was GREAT, loving every damn minute.
Number of times seen band: 1
Crowd participation: Again, the crowd was great. Those people that knew the words sang along which is always more than the band can ask for. In saying that, the boys in Flicker should be very happy with the outcome of their set, and who could blame them because they nailed it!
Genre: Alternative Pop Punk
Rating: 7.5/10 guitars
My review: •Awesome songs
•Good to see 4 best mates havin’ the time of their lives doing what they love to do…
Summary: Flicker are a band that started 2 years ago now, they are classified as an upbeat, energetic band and no doubt have a very tight live show. The boys provided the crowd with a set of originals, including new single “ #Zero” and personal favourite “ #Respite” which even had a few people singing along to one of the catchiest hooks you’ll hear all week! Good luck for the future boys, you’ll no doubt smash it up!
Also, if anyone is wondering why the name “Flicker”… well they were listening to the ‘Porter Robinson, song Flicker’, and it just stuck with them. ☺
Yin 🌀 This picture looks a little freaky but it’s the only position that’s giving me respite right now. Today my energies have been very frenetic, surging creativity, general business and impatient little people! After a few hand and head stands which always helps to tip garbage out of the mind space, and slow the heart down. I realised what I really needed was Yin, stillness, resting with what is, in its naked dynamic. This posture is great before bed, especially for women. Sometimes I just can’t stay still, I’m so relieved to find myself here; still here as I’m typing - great quads stretch! #yin#yinyoga#eveningsadhana#sheepskin#mysadhana#yogatherapy#bestill#relaxandwork#savasana#freefromfear#quadsstretch#respite

The complete refurbishment of one of our respite holiday homes in the New Forest is complete! "Our respite holiday programme offers much-needed respite to children, and their families, who are enduring huge challenges with their illness. Knowing we can bring some comfort, normality and ‘family time’ is wonderful." Chief Executive Bianca Effemey
This refurbishment was made possible by a grant from @globals_make_some_noise - a national charity which unites some of the country’s much -loved radio stations to raise money and awareness for brilliant small charities, helping disadvantaged youngsters in the UK.

I opted for a morning 🚴🏾 ride instead of run 🏃🏾 this morning. This spot is my favorite part of Discovery Beach because of how it looks when the sun is rising and has risen. It's the points of light dancing on the water's surface, the hues of the ocean, the salty air and this tree. 🏖 #242 #respite

#TipoftheWeek Foster families encourage your close friends and family members to become licensed #RESPITE providers so that you have a network of support for your family and children in your care!
Reunited with my loves. They make my heart literally ache with love. I couldn’t possibly be more proud of them and couldn’t possibly delight in them any more than I do. They are treasures.
So very thankful for grandparents who give these boys love, care and fun and me a break!! Mamas, we work hard. Whether you work outside the home, from home, Work for actual income or not. Doesn’t matter. We all hustle and keep the wheels of our families running. And it’s easy to take care of everyone but ourselves. But guess what? We aren’t functioning optimally if we aren’t well-rested, fed, re-fueled. We need respite. We need breaks. We need fun. And to sleep in. And to have still, quiet time alone. We need time to reconnect with ourselves...it’s easy to get lost in the identity of “mom” and forget the other pieces of ourselves- and ALL of us is important and vital to our families, friends and this world.
But we are worth it the same way our kids are worth our very best care and love.
"The chance to talk long into the night, to cry, to laugh and to come together... It was magical. We all learnt so much about ourselves... I will remember the fun, laughter and friendship created." Feedback from the beneficiaries of 'Cohort 4' - a charity offering support to women who have suffered domestic abuse - who benefited from a stay at our Paxton's Tower Lodge (pictured) last year as part of our #50ForFree scheme.
The deadline for applications for next year's set of stays, which will take place in March 2018, is THIS SUNDAY. Please share the link in our bio with any charities you can, and help us to give the respite of a free stay to someone who really needs it.

Sometimes you just need to "be," ya know? Get away from the crowd and let your mind drift. This looks like just the spot for thoughts to run free, where cares melt away and dreams appear... 😊 Take some "me" time this month in MA. 📷 @timothymollen#visitMA#pictureperfect#getaway
