Your carer relationship is important to you. It's important to us too.

Taking some time out from the carer relationship can help keep your connection strong.

Respite care for older people

Flexible respite options for older people

Carer relationships can benefit from a mix of time together and time apart. We’re here to help you find a balance that works for you.

If you’re a carer for an older family member in Victoria, flexible respite care can help. Taking a break to recharge your batteries can keep you caring for longer. It can also provide the chance to tackle some of life’s other priorities, like appointments and reconnecting with friends.

We offer four types of respite

Who can access respite care?

If you’re caring for someone aged 65+ (or Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people over 50), they may be eligible to access flexible respite services.

Aged care respite funding comes through My Aged Care, based on the government’s Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP) assessment process. Respite for older people is kept affordable through government subsidies.
