Going away on holiday – or even a short visit – can seem like an impossible dream for many parents and carers struggling with behavioural issues and safety concerns. The Travel beds provides a safe, low-stimulation environment, in which a person can settle at night when away from home. The soft walls and floor mean there are no hard surfaces inside, reducing the risk of injury. Carers and family can relax – a real holiday for everyone!
What is a Travel Bed?
Basically its a safe bed designed for children who may be unsafe in an ordinary room or bed. It can be used for those with complex needs, including learning disabilities, autism, epilepsy and challenging behaviours.
Little Hiccups has two different ones for hire with different attributes as we appreciate it is not one size fits all!
The Travel Bed is in line with the other services that Little Hiccups offer and is not a stand alone equipment hire services. It is part of our commitment to build memories for the Little Hiccups families. We do not hire out to unknown families. We ask that families are known to us, are registered for at least 6 months and use our other services.
There is a small charge of £5 a day to help running costs and a small deposit of £50 required. Deposit will be refunded on the safe return on the Travel Bed.
Many thanks for the Grant from Halifax Building Society that helped us to purchase these accessible and secure travel beds for our families to hire out for breaks away.
