This report evaluates the Maytree Respite Centre in its first 3 years of operation (2002-2005). The Maytree model, identified as providing respite, opportunities for change towards a wish to live rather than a wish to die, & the reduction of stigma, was evaluated. The evaluation showed, on both qualitative & quantitative measures, very strong evidence that staying at Maytree was experienced as having significantly & deep positive effects.
