Carer Support

Respite care can support you and your carer with a break for a short period of time. This gives carers the chance to get to everyday activities or go on a planned break. There are a range of respite services to support you including:

  • 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
