Conifers

1 Central Avenue, Borrowash, Derby, DE72 3JZ

Conifers provides high quality short-break respite care for adults with moderate to profound learning disabilities. For the carers and families seeking a break, our commitment to delivering high quality care is a guarantee that should afford them piece of mind when entrusting their loved ones to our care.

Each guest room is a bright, optimistic space where individuals can feel safe, cared for and supported. Following an individual assessment, a detailed care plan with up-to-date information including risk assessments is put together by our team. Our care plans are then shared with the individual, their family and carer for verification and agreement.

Individuals can also visit Conifers with their family or carers to familiarise themselves with the environment and meet with members of our team.

“We can fully relax in the knowledge that our son is happy, safe and well cared for.”Parent

At Conifers, we want the people in our care to enjoy their break with us. That’s why we offer a variety of activities for our guests to enjoy and to choose from. These include community outings, group activities, sensory therapy, 1:1 activities or just relaxing indoors by listening to music.
