Respite care

If you are caring for an older person or a person with a disability, you may be able to receive Respite Care. This occurs when our trained staff supports the person you care for while you have a break.

Respite Care can be provided in your home or in the community. It can also include assistance with Personal Care, for example, showering and dressing or assistance with attending a program or community-based activity, such as exercise or social outings.

Information can also be provided on longer term or emergency Respite Care from other non-Council service providers.
