Ballylusk Cottage

Ballylusk is a detached is a home offering respite services to children with intellectual disabilities and is situated on an acre of land and is in beautiful country surroundings.

We aim to provide services that will:

Provide an appropriate, relaxed and safe family home environment in community based settings for clients of the service.

Engender in the minds of the clients and their families, a feeling of security and trust in the location, and in the care provided. This trust will be such that the families will choose to seek respite independently.

The Association views respite services as an important part of its integrated approach to providing a supporting role to all families facing the life-long challenges that their family member presents.

This service is viewed by the Association as a support to the clients family in the first instance. The service to the client is managed with a view to complimenting the role of their family.

We have four respite houses within the organisation, Haughton House, Haughton Lodge, Brambles,  Ballylusk.
