Respite Care

 

Respite care supports the care relationship by providing carers with a break from their caring responsibilities. They also provide an opportunity for the person being cared for to have a break, or to have an outing without their usual carer.

 

Respite care allows the carer to "take a break", while knowing that the person they care for is being looked after.  A range of respite options are available either in your own home, within the community or within a residential care setting.

 

To access Residential respite or a home care package an Aged Care Assessment is required.  Click here to see contact details.
