Everyone needs some time out for themselves to stay at their best, especially when caring for someone else. Our friendly and experienced team can come to your place for a couple hours and care for your loved one in the comfort of their own home and routine. Or perhaps they’d enjoy a change of scenery with a regular day out at one of our social and community hubs or an overnight stay at Pechey Place, our respite cottage? Our wide range of flexible, help to care options give you the opportunity to rest and recharge with the knowledge that your loved one feels safe, relaxed and cared for in the same high quality way they are used to.
Shirley, 87, is one busy lady. She looks after her husband, Keith, who has dementia and tends to their three-bedroom Corinda home, which they’ve shared for 50 years. With funding for flexible respite, Keith is cared for in their home, out in the community and at their local social and community hub where he meets up with his mates and enjoys some exercise. Shirley is grateful for the opportunity it gives her to run errands and enjoy the things she loves like sewing and gardening.
