Your carer relationship is important to you. It’s important to us too.
Research shows that 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, flexible respite care can help. Taking a break to recharge your batteries can help 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 Flexible In Home Respite and Centre Based respite through the Commonwealth home Support Program.
Thinking of taking time off? Flexible respite is a scheduled break from your caring role.
We’ll organise a qualified worker to take over while you take a step back. Whether you’d like some space, or you’d prefer to stay present during the respite time, we’ll arrange the support that suits your needs.
Our Respite Programs are part of the Commonwealth Home Support Program and are for carers aged 65 years and over (50 years and over for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people).
This program is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.
Respite for elderly people is kept affordable through government subsidies, supplemented by a small contribution from clients.
