Flexible Respite

If you are caring for an older person then flexible respite can assist you by providing supervision and assistance to the person you care for while you take a break or get other things done. 

Respite can be provided at home or in the community and supports people to maintain meaningful social interactions and leisure activities.  Depending on your needs and situation flexible respite can be arranged for a one-off event, short-term for a few weeks or months, or on an ongoing basis. 

Fees apply for this service and are based on your income.
