Respite Testimonials

Clann Mór provides a respite service for people with intellectual disabilities living in Co. Meath. We currently have 67 people who use our respite service. People can come for one night, a weekend or longer, as needed. Clann Mór Respite can support five residents to stay at one time. It is open for most of the year, closing for short periods at Christmas and in the summer. This allows for essential repair and routine maintenance. Respite offers people a space to unwind, have fun and supports a break for the individual and/or their family. People have an opportunity to mix with their peers and engage in the community.
