Carer Support

Respite care can support you and your carer with a break for a short period of time.

There are a range of respite services available to help carers get to everyday activities or go on a planned break.

  • In-home respite: usually involves a support worker coming to your home so that your carer can go out for a few hours. They may also take you for an outing while your carer has a break.
  • Centre-based day respite: usually takes place in our Centre. It offers structured group activities or outings that give you a chance to do things that you enjoy and talk with other people. This includes transport to and from the centre.
  • Over-night respite: depending on staffing levels we may be able to provide over-night respite on a short term basis.

Other carer services that we provide include:

  • Dementia Support Group: for the carers of clients with dementia
  • Parkinson’s Support Group: for clients with Parkinson’s and their carers
  • Couples Group: an opportunity for clients and their partners to socialise with others
