Need some time away from your caring role?

Caring for someone is a big responsibility.

To ensure you can continue in your caring role, you might benefit from taking some time out (respite) to focus on your own health and wellbeing, attend appointments, or take a longer break knowing that the person you care for is in good hands.

Respite options can be tailored to meet your needs as the carer, as well as the needs of the person you are caring for.

Our staff are trained to support people living with cognitive and neurological conditions such as dementia and Parkinson’s disease, as well as people living with chronic disease or who have mobility challenges.

What services are available?

Home community respite

Home or Community Respite – Individual or Group

We can spend time with the person you care for in their own home, or out and about in the community. All respite options provide opportunities for the person you are caring for to connect with others, get out and about, and learn new things, in a 1:1 or group setting. Options include: collecting and recording a personal life story, learning to use an iPad, joining an art class, Sing for Joy Choir and bus tours.

Dementia specific support

Dementia Specific Support

Having a diagnosis of dementia is no reason to stop doing the things that are important to you. Finding a balance to do things together as well as individually is a key to living well. We have respite options that are inclusive of people living with dementia – either 1:1 or in small groups.

Residential respite care

Residential Respite Care

Respite Care in one of our eight homes across Adelaide and the Fleurieu Peninsula may be an option for up to 63 days each financial year, subject to availability. To access, you will first need an assessment (ACAT).

Carer getaway

Carer Getaways

Designed with both carers and those you care for in mind, these retreats offer respite as well as the opportunity to socialise and engage with like minded people in a relaxed and safe environment. See what getaways are available in Carer Support & Experiences social experiences.
