Respite Care is available at GraniteHill for individuals to receive their individual care needs as it is designed to give carers a break.
Having someone else provide the care means a Carer can go on holiday, attend to everyday activities or in case they get sick or need to go to hospital themselves.
Respite care can benefit the person you are caring for, too, providing them with variety, stimulation, and a welcome change of routine. We understand that caregiving for an elderly, ill, or disabled family member is a demanding job and no one is equipped to do it alone.
Eligibility for admission as a respite client is determined via the Aged Care Assessment Service (ACAS).
Emergency Respite options maybe be available in extreme circumstances, please call our Aged Care Manager Janet Shankland to discuss the options on (03) 5795 0200.
