Respite Care (short term care) is offered during unexpected illness, injury or at times when carers need to take a break from caring for an elderly person in their own home.
Our well-trained and experienced staff take over the role of caring for an elderly relative or friend. This can be for several hours (at an aged care community day respite centre for example) overnight, or sometimes for several weeks (in our well-equipped residential high care and low care facilities).
Most residential care facilities offer a form of Respite Care dependent on vacancies. Please use our service finder to find a service near you.
