Respite Care

Respite care supports you and your carer by giving you both an opportunity to take a short break. It can help give you and your carer the time and space to do things independently.

Respite Care in a Residential Care Home is also a great way to get a feel for life in a home if you are considering moving into one in the future. While in Respite Care you will receive the same level of high-quality, individualised and tailored care that our residents receive from our professional care team. This includes access to 24/7 on-site nurses, professional chefs, allied health staff and leisure & lifestyle teams.

You can access Respite Care for a few hours, a few days, or longer – depending on your needs, eligibility, and what services are available in your area. It can be accessed in your home, out in the community, or in a Residential Care Home.
