Gwennie's Getaways

"Providing short term breaks to those with Alzheimer’s & dementia & their family or carers"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

Gwennie’s Getaways is committed to providing short term breaks to those with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia and their family or carers. Our two beautiful static caravans are based at Primrose Valley, a seaside resort on the East Coast in Filey. Each caravan is double glazed and has a full central heating system keeping it warm and cosy in the cooler months. They each have disabled access, two bathrooms and are fully equipped with the usual home comforts allowing for a comfortable and restful stay.

What We Do

Going on holiday can be extremely beneficial and enjoyable for people affected by dementia and their carers. A short break away can offer new experiences and a rest from the daily routines. There is a common trend where it is thought that a carer will prefer a respite break away from the person that they are caring for. In a lot of circumstances, this isn’t the case and what they really want is to spend some much needed quality time together.

It is expected that people are able to manage their own care needs or will have someone with them who can support them with this, usually a family member or friend who wants to share the experiences that our short breaks can bring.

Our aim is to allow both the patient and the carer to relax in and around the beautifully landscaped holiday park amongst lakes, lawns, fountains and fabulous views.

With a beach just minutes away, on-site indoor swimming pools, a boating lake, sport and leisure activities this is a perfect break for everyone.
