What is respite?
Often, when we think of aged care, we think of something permanent. But there is another option. Respite is when you join us for a short stay.
Why choose respite over permanent care?
There are many reasons people choose respite. Perhaps you want to ‘test the waters’ and see if we’re the right aged care option for you. Or maybe it’s the first step in discussing permanent care with your mum and dad, helping them to feel more comfortable with the decision to move to aged care. Sometimes carers simply need to take a small break.
Whatever the reason, respite allows older people to receive the extra care they need for a short period of time. Generally, respite within residential aged care is for a minimum of two weeks, but it can be longer. It all depends on your needs.
