What does it do?Kiloran was first registered as a charity in 1994. We opened the house in April 1996 to provide residential supportive breaks for all carers looking after someone at home.
Who it is for: Kiloran is here specifically for full time carers looking after a relative or friend at home - a husband, wife, child, parent, sibling - who requires full time commitment to their care.
Where it is available:National service (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales).
What it costs:This is subsidised and is currently £250 for a Monday- Saturday break, which includes ensuite bedrooms and meals.
If you have a low income or claim income support we can help to obtain funding to cover this amount.
How to access or apply for it:
To enquire about coming to Kiloran for a break, just telephone 020 7602 7404 and we will send you a booking form and further information.
Alternatively apply online
What to expect then:
We offer carers a break from Monday - Saturday in our West London house, which is informal, friendly, warm and relaxed. All meals are provided. We know how difficult caring for someone can be, and how important it is for carers to spend time looking after themselves as well. When a carer has the chance for some respite, it is an ideal opportunity to come and spend some time at Kiloran.
Additional information:Sometimes we are able to welcome "carer families" who need a short break together whilst the person being cared for is in respite.
