"Once I got over the guilt of Age (Adrian) going to Respite I realised what a valuable resource Merlin was offering. Age has an amazing time each Monday meeting his friends, playing games and having a laugh. Age gets to do his own thing and I get to be "Me" for the day, safe in the knowledge that my husband is being cared for."
Lorraine, Wife and full time Carer
" The best thing about Respite is that we have a laugh! I have made many new friends and I have the chance to have extra therapy as well. Nothing is too much trouble for Ali and her team. I cant recommend it enough."
Age (Adrian), Centre User
"The advice and support we have always received from the Merlin MS Centre has been second to none. My wife attends Respite care at the centre and I am always confident that she is being given the care she needs in a professional and friendly way."
Jonathan, Husband and Carer for wife Pauline
“I am so glad I discovered this place. The facilities are superb and everyone is so friendly. I love the social side and the gym sessions really help me to keep going.”
John, Service User
“I was really anxious about coming to Respite for the first time, I really had nothing to worry about. All the staff are lovely and very understanding. I even got some new clothes from the shop. For the first time in a long while I don’t feel so lonely and really look forward to coming.”
Julie, Service User
