Respite

Planned aged care respite is provided to people who have been assessed as needing support in daily living and in maintenance of function. 

Eligible clients are provided accommodation in our aged care residential facility in a hostel setting. Residents have access to recreational and diversional therapy and where possible can have continued access to any existing day care and social programs to minimise disruption to their lives.

Eligibility for admission as a respite client is determined via the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS); usually (but not always) arranged via your General Practitioner. We need to be provided with documentation from ACAS before we can confirm your bed.

To enquire about admission or to learn more about available respite care please contact us.

To be eligible for admission, the following criteria applies:

  • The person must be medically stable
  • The Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS) must have assessed the person as requiring respite. This includes the completion by ACAS of a current aged care application and approval form.
