If you are caring for a family member, partner, friend or neighbour who is frail aged, has dementia or terminal illness, the Respite and Carelink Centre may be able to provide some extra help in the form of RESPITE. This will allow you to have a break every now and again and help to sustain your role as a carer.
We will assess your current situation to find flexible respite options that best suit your individual needs.
Some respite options available include:
- Household tasks (domestic assistance)
- Personal care
- In home respite (support provided at home)
- Community respite (engage in community activities)
- Residential respite care (short stays in aged care homes)
Please call us on 1800 052 222 to speak to one of our helpful staff about respite support or how we can best help you.
