24/7 care in an aged care community

Respite guests are encouraged to take part in a calendar of activities and enjoy meals with other residents. Tell us your routines and we’ll recreate your sense of home. Residential aged care respite is available for a minimum of two weeks stay. This provides a chance to experience the full benefits of the service and what living in an aged care community is really like. Bookings are accepted for immediate respite, as well as planned respite up to three months in advance. Availability varies so it’s best to talk to us about your needs.  

Accessing respite

If you have a current ACAT assessment or Aged Care Client Record (ACCR), the cost is subsidised by the Government and you may be eligible for up to nine weeks of respite per year. Alternatively, you can access and pay for unlimited amounts of respite care privately, subject to availability.

As everyone’s circumstances are different, we encourage you to contact us to discuss your requirements and potential costs.
