Respite Care

Our respite services offer exciting and friendly individualised social and recreational activities so that carers can confidently leave their loved ones to enjoy a much deserved break, reassured that the person they care for is being well looked after.

Types of respite care services

Services can be either in the client's home, in their community, at ARRCS centre-based respite facilities or in our residential aged care facilities.

In-home respite focuses on lifestyle activities, assistance with light household duties, personal care, shopping and meal preparation, as well as support in social activities.

Through centre-based respite, clients attend day programs that may include excursions, outdoor or indoor activities or holiday programs.

Trained respite workers undertake client assessments. Needs-based programs are then developed with clients and their carers to enhance quality of life and provide opportunities for community contact.

We also coordinate carer support groups to provide an opportunity for carers to meet other carers, and to offer social support and encouragement for those who are requiring encouragement.
