Carer support

Carers also need to take time to care of themselves. We provide a range of flexible respite services to offer carers an opportunity to get things done and to take a break, knowing the person they care for has all the support they need.

Respite care can be provided in your own home or at a centre. It can be for a couple of hours during the day or night, or even overnight for a few days or weeks.

Some of the services we can help you with are

  • Personal care and support with daily tasks
  • Meal solutions
  • Transport
  • Overnight assistance
  • Transition from hospital to home
  • Social support and company

     

In-home respite

Our qualified personal care workers can provide respite care at home or while accompanying you to an activity or outing of your choice.

Day respite (in-centre)

You’ll find companionship and enjoyable activities and outings at our Social Connection Hubs. We’ll ask you what your interests and favourite pastimes are so that we can assist you in doing the things you love. From art and music therapy to cooking classes, eating out, and so much more

Overnight respite

Enjoy hotel-like accommodation with delicious and nutritious home cooked meals, social activities and outings, and a comfortable bed. Whatever you enjoy doing, we will assist you in doing more of it. From hosting an afternoon tea with friends to getting you out to the local bowls club, we’re here to make your time with us enjoyable.

Our experienced staff can assist you to find specialised resources and can introduce you to networks for extra guidance and support.
