Respite care has many benefits for both carers and the individual they care for. It can help give individuals and their carers time apart, to do things independently and can be accessed for a few hours, a few days, or longer – depending on needs/eligibility.
Our respite services are available in home, out in the community, or in an aged care home.
A temporary stay in a residential aged care home or overnight/day respite in our centre-based respite facilities can enhance opportunities for individuals to socialise with others. It also supports their carer by giving them a break to prioritise their own health and wellbeing.
