A few weeks ago Katie-Lou visited Aberlour’s St. Boswells respite home for a weekend. We have been offered a place for Katie-Lou at the home before, to give Nikki and myself a couple days respite and time out from 24/7 caring. We’d always declined it as the thought of Katie-Lou being away for a couple days in a new environment with strangers and without us was too scarey! We have however got to a place where we know ‘our time’ is important and thats it’s also important that Katie-Lou experiences a bit of independence from us every now and then, like she has at school, which has been so good for her.
Needless to say Katie-Lou was absolutely fine, and was well looked after by the staff at Aberlour who seemed really nice and who we say a VERY BIG THANK YOU to! Nik and I had a couple of relaxing days in Glencoe with the dogs.
