Eligibility and Application Process

You may be eligible for respite care if you are an older person with a carer and:

– your carer is unable to care for you for some reason
– you or your carer need a break from your usual care arrangements

To receive any type of short-term respite care, individuals must first be assessed to determine their eligibility. The services they are assessed for will be based on their situation and needs.

Respite in a residential aged care setting is best suited to people who need a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of four weeks respite care at any one time. Individuals will need an ACAT assessment to determine their eligibility for residential respite.

Carers can access Government funding for in-home, overnight cottage and day respite through CHSP/HCP or can choose to pay for respite services privately.
