Respite Support

Respite support provides short-term, temporary and emergency relief to family or friends who care for people with significant or permanent care needs.

If you are looking after a family member or friend and need a break or addiontal help, our respite services can be arranged casually, on a regular basis or in an emergency.

We have no waiting lists, so you can feel confident we will respond to your request quickly.

CareChoice understands how difficult it can be to leave loved ones, and we work with you to ensure each CareChoice worker is suitably matched to individual needs.

Respite: caring for the carer

Even though many families rightfully take great joy and pride in providing care to their loved ones so that they can remain at home, the physical, emotional and financial consequences for the primary caregiver(s) can be overwhelming without some form of respite.

Respite provides a well deserved break for the family caregiver, which is beneficial to their health and wellbeing. There is also much evidence to suggest that respite also provides a positive experience for the person receiving respite support.

If you are the person normally providing day-to-day care, contact us to find out how we can support you. Our respite services will give you a break and provide you with the opportunity to attend to tasks or activities on your own, confident in the knowledge that the person you care about is safe and in professional hands.
